This was a quick, easy, boring stay… I spent like 8 hours at the ER, finally got admitted, and then spent three days laying in bed bored.

I was having major vision issues, in that, I could not see… It was like my eyes were crossed! Told them I did not want Prednisone, it does not work anymore… I wanted Solu-Medrol (IV Steroids)… They gave me 1,000mg a day for 3 days over the coarse of an hour and then I felt great. Vision started clearing up and so did some of the other symptoms but nothing went away, just the vision thing, as much as it will, back to my baseline…

They were supposed to send me om with Prednisone (I was going to try a low dose for an extended period of time) and a prescription for outpatient IV steroid treatments but I never got that… What ever… Oh Yeah, told the nurse when I showed up that I did not need pain killers because she asked if I did. Then the next day I REALLY did, I just could not suppress it anymore. I said that I didn’t want 1X Norco (5/325) because I now take 3X 10/325 at a time (30/975) and it does nothing to me. I wanted a Percocet just to see if something different would help. She asked my doctor and he said “No, you are too young to be on that kind of medication”.

Really??? I have been on it all, I have empty bottles of it at home! If 3X 10/325 will not help why would 1X 5/325 help??? Too young?? I forgot that pain discriminate against age, oh wait… Pain is pain and I was in a lot. I just asked for 1X Ibuprofen because 1X Norco is just going to add to my addiction. Pft… The ibuprofen did not help… Duh…

Well had a decent room mate and I was in and out in 3 days so can not complain after what I have been through.
