I was able to help my grandmother three days in a row. I have found if I am not in too much pain three cups of coffee spread through the day will give me just enough energy. Its a temporary solution I know. The coffee and caffiene will wreck havok on my acid reflux, cause a chronic cough, and exasperate my slipping rib syndrome.
My ribs were bothering me yesterday but not as severely as the day prior. I woke with a migraine today but I had gone a whole week without one, so I would feel ungrateful to complain. My psoriatic arthritis pain hasn’t been bad at all, so I am hopeful that the Remicade is working. The nurse did say some people see results in as little as six weeks and thats where I am. So far I haven’t noticed any side effects, such as hair loss or infection; only rather extreme fatigue for a few days after the injection.
Took some off brand migraine asprin as excedrine migraine is still off the market. Hopefully it will also take the edge off of the rib pain.
