  I've been lazy today, got up at 10:30am and went right back out until 1pm. I'm still sleepy, lol. Foot pain returned in the right foot for a little while. After a while the meds kicked in and took some of that out.  The medicine for Neuropathy does help with the pain and while I am at a low level building up, I may decide not to build up. If anything, it does increase the numbness and brings about a loss of balance. This appears to be more of a pick which one you consider the lesser of two evils. I have to weigh it out. I am starting at 200mg 2 times per day and soon going to 600mg two times a day. I'm not sure if the 600 will bring about more loss of balance of if it will remain at the current levels. It also doesn't help the ankle picking up the foot. It also doesn't effect the numbness that comes and goes on the left side of my head or my hands.

  So far the drop from 50 to 25mg patch has produced a little DT effects until today. When the DT signs stay for a while I supplement with a pill. I would imagine that Kim is 100% correct as usual, when I stop the 25 mg patch I will have to work my way back down with pills just like I went up. It's like my body has become use to this stuff.

   The neck pain is pretty much gone with the magnetic necklace. I'm not sure it will work but I am going to try some ankle bracelets to see if that will work. I'm not sure since it's neurological rather than arthritis but it is worth a shot. 

  I seem to stay extremely fatigued and when I do feel like exertion it is short lived. When I push it, and I believe that is the way you come back online, I pay for it the next day.

Denise says I have hair growing back on my ears and this time I'm not going to fuss after being aerodynamic for so long, lol.
