The problem with painkillers is the catch 22…
At 4am I was still not asleep. Not because I wasn’t tired but because I was in agony and couldn’t relax my body nor mind. So I took a large chunk of my daily “as needed” painkillers.
- tramadol 150mg
- arcoxia 90mg
- paracetamol 1g
- metoclopramide 20mg
the upshot was a nice wave of fuzziness rushing over each area of pain, however this is accompanied by now still being wide awake at 6am. Does anyone else get this wakefulness from their painkillers or is it just me?
