So Friday, in my wisdom, I decided that I was going to stop taking the Vicodin for my shoulder. I also thought I might end up with a rebound headache from too much Frova so I wanted to clean out my system of all things drugs (except my Topamax.) I think it's possible this may have been a mistake. I had a headache on Sat. - it started to get better by the end of the day - and never really got all that bad, just annoying more then anything. But, because I was thinking it was a rebound, I didn't want to take anything. Well, then Sunday came....Oh man - I thought it was the end. My head was killing me. I was sick,sick sick (seriously - you don't want details!! LOL)! I don't know if it was a rebound headache or a Vicodin withdrawal. (I looked it up online and the Vicodin withdrawal symptoms are similar to a rebound so???) I again refused to take anything. I finally ate something at like 6 p.m. My head finally started to feel a little tiny bit better. I went to bed. I woke up today - head is about 95% better - I keep getting tinges of a headache but it's not constant. I am still feeling a little woozy though . Other then that - it's all good! My back hurts from sleeping so much the last 2 days. I'm just glad to be rejoining the human race! I don't even feel like I had a weekend!!! But I can be thankful for 2 things. I toughed it out and now I am over the Vicodin (after I was a day and a half into my "great idea" I read that you should taper off - Thanks for letting my know! I'm yelling at my Dr. about that today) and second is that I'm feeling better today - enough to probably go grocery shopping with hubby tonight - since I put it off over the weekend.
