Savella Day 14

So far so good on Savella. The nausea from moving up to the full dose has went away (thank you God!). I can actually climb stairs without my legs feeling like they are falling completely off. I am hoping to start Couch to 5k tomorrow (fingers crossed!). I got my prescription called in today but of course since its a new medicine they don’t keep it stocked so it will be delivered tomorrow (so those who are looking to possibly start it don’t let your sample run out before you order your prescription just in case your pharmacy doesn’t stock it either!).

I have battled pretty bad joint pain today (the Savella has helped my deep muscle pain primarily). Of course it could be that my daughter has boycotted sleep on Sunday nights for the last six weeks so I know that when I do not sleep, the pain gets worse. The humidity also went up today so maybe my barometer-self was just predicting the weather.

I had my weigh-in for WW this morning and I was down 1.2 pounds! Woo-hoo! Just a tip for those needing help pacing your meal (since just about every weight loss or diet manual you read states that the slower you eat the more easily your brain will recognize you are full) – feed a child! I swear when I try to feed Abby while I am trying to eat my own dinner, I eat considerably less! Hopefully this is a trend that will continue!


I love hearing from you!
