I mentioned that Dr. Easley had raised my Fentanyl dose, since the previous one wasn’t doing much for my headache. He quadrupled it actually: 50 micrograms an hour as opposed to 12. My head hardly hurts at all now.
However, tired as I am, I cannot get to sleep. I thrashed around in bed all night long. I would just get to the point of slipping under, then suddenly I was wide awake again. I recall that the same thing happened when I started taking MS Contin (morphine) early this year. God knows how long it’ll last. I hope I’ll get used to it eventually.
Ironically, the reason I asked Dr. Easley to put me back on Fentanyl was because my head hurt so bad that I couldn’t get to sleep at night.
