6.30am – midnight musings

Woke up at about 1.30am, took another Tramadol because the pain in my joints was returning. Drifted back off to sleep quickly. Woke again at 5am; pain returning – almost couldn’t move again – so took another 50mg of Tramadol. Feeling like a junkie.

I’m getting quite concerned now about my pain management. I want to know if there is anything I can do other than taking painkillers to help alleviate the inflammation. Surely I’m not going to need to take opioids for as long as I receive Infliximab.

Because it’s Christmas I don’t know who I can talk to. My IBD nurse, L, isn’t contactable until Tuesday. My GP surgery is shut today and tomorrow. What an awkward time for this all to happen.
