I'll also be taking Celebrex and Amitriptyline (spelling?). Celebrex to take down the swelling, the other (an anti-depressant), to help with pain and sleeplessness at night. He doesn't think I have RSD, but would like me to work with the original doctor I saw at the pain clinic. That, I do not mind. He's a good doctor and I'd rather be safe than sorry. But my appointment is two days before my birthday. I hope I don't get a diagnosis of RSD for my birthday. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't still confused. But just having a little relief from the injection is helping me feel a little better. Also, I'm going to try a few things to hopefully make the transition to sleep a bit easier. We bought some lavender scented soap which should help me relax a bit, and some red tea (which is supposed to be fruity) and some peppermint tea. I'll take my medicine at night with tea which should help. If things improve, I'll be thrilled.
I'm going to try really hard to trust God. I know that's key.
Now I need to relieve Julio and eat some dinner.
