chronic illness

Scary moment this am

I woke up at 5am to go to the bathroom this morning and ended up in the floor. As soon as I stood up it was like my legs gave way underneath me. So I ended up waking up John as I bounced of the wall into the floor. It was definitely one of the most scary things I have ever experienced. It took me a good 60 to 90 seconds to feel like I could stand up again. It hasn’t happened since but I was sure to get up slowly when I got up for the day. I’m wondering if it was just a fluke or something to be concerned with. I mean last night I took all of my prescribed meds & vitamins at once (like usual just with the addition of the prednison and vicodin) so I’m not sure if it was a bad combo or maybe I slept funny. I know the drug info sheet that came with the prednisone said to alert doctor of muscle weakness so I’m not sure whether to call or just wait it out. I always feel stupid talking to my neuro anyway so I really don’t want to call if its not necessary. Oh, I’m not capable of making decisions this morning!

I love hearing from you!
