    hello elisea!

    just please always let doctor know about supplements taken, as doctor need to know everything, for those times where something may interact with med he has prescribed.

    i may have missed it, but ...when did you have your fusion surgery? and did you speak with your doctor about your lack of sleep?

    i was never a candidate for surgery, but with my chronic pain i struggle with sleeplessness, which is not uncommon, but something that can be dealt with.
    i was so irritable, hyper and wanting to pull out my hair with the crazy making no sleep!

    my pain management doctor did sleep study on me. i thought it would be waste of time since i don't sleep...or not enough sleep for test to show anything.
    but it did show something and doctor treated me successfully.
    i still may have one or two nights a week where as i'm not sleeping, but i can deal with that.

    curious if you mentioned your nausea from hydrocodone to your doctor?
    he may be able to give you a med you can tolerate better??
