Strange day, indeed....... 

Ok, today I started the Provigil. I decided to just take half a pill to see if I had any major side effects right away. Believe it or not, it started working in less than an hour.

I did have more energy than usual, no doubt about that. Made it easier to get through my aquacise class, and after I got home, I didn't experience the usual feeling of being about to pass out from exhaustion. Rare for me to not need a nap after exercise.

I did have some transient bouts of nausea. And one thing I found annoying was that my fibrofog was still slowing my thinking so I felt out of synch with my energy level. These things may pass with time though.

I needed to go a few places today. I had Dan drive me since I didn't know how I was going to feel. I dropped off some scripts at the pharmacy, got an allergy shot and picked up a few items at the health food store.

We were heading home when Dan had to slam on the brakes really hard. It jerked my neck enough to make me scream in pain. I had just gotten over some minor neck strain from a near collision the week before, sigh.

My fatigue returned a few miles later.....I don't know if it was because of the neck spasms, the Provigil wearing off, or if that's a normal thing. And I developed a really rotten headache once I got home. I iced my neck and it seemed to help a little....or maybe because I was off the computer not getting nauseous looking at the screen??

Anyway, I will try the Provigil again in the morning. I'm gonna stay at the half dose unless it doesn't seem to be strong enough. I do wish fibro treatment was less trial and error, but such is life.
