Super slo mo..... 

Last night before bed, I tried the 900mg dose of Neurontin for my periodic limb movement disorder. Didn't take my Ambien in case the other med made me sleepy. Actually was sleeping ok today until the phone rang.

When I woke up, I felt horrible. Had a headache, nausea and felt like I was trying to think through cotton (more than usual). And I was still twitching.

Was supposed to go with my hubby to the grocery store, but I couldn't even get out of bed. I sat up long enough to write a grocery list and then had to lay down again. So Dan went without me.

The headache and nausea gradually lessened over the next three hours or so. I still felt like I was moving at one-quarter my already slow speed, though. Had to skip my workout because I felt too unsteady.

Finally decided to get a baby shower gift for my stepbrother's wife. Dan went with me, which was good because I wasn't up to driving. I already knew what I was going to buy before I walked in the store.

I considered using one of those motorized carts in the store, but no one seemed terribly interested in helping me figure out how to use it. I made it to the baby stuff under my own power, but I had to lean on Dan going to check out. Had to go straight home after that because I was already wiped out for the day.

The lower doses of Neurontin didn't make me feel sick like this. I'll try it again tonight, but I'm getting pretty fed up with meds that don't agree with me. I still have a week and a half before I see the sleep specialist and discuss other possible treatments.

Wish I could have some chocolate.
