today is a neuropathy day

I have had problems with neuropathy for several years and it can make itself known rather quickly sometimes. Last night I started having twinges in the left side of my face above the cheekbone and the eyebrow area. This morning it has decided to make my day interesting. I take a medication for it that does dull the pain, somewhat, but it also makes me a little zombie-ish. The pain comes in waves. If you've ever had shingles, you know of what I speak. This is just like shingles, but without the blisters on the skin. It usually only last a few days, if I'm lucky. This is the first time I've had it in my face. It's usually been my scalp the last few times. I have another hour to go before I can take more medicine... I swear it also has the ability to slow time.


  1. Awww, that just sucks. I hope the next pill keeps it down! I hope to see you Thursday.

  2. Awwww - I hope you feel better soon! Sending a hug!

  3. Looking at beauteous things usually makes me feel better when I have health issues going on. Take out some of your favorite yarn and go squish. Hope you feel better soon. * Phyllis *
