Jf1234 Posted February 24, 2012 Share Posted February 24, 2012 Just dx'd with bipolar disorder II yesterday. What a RELIEF! after being told by two of my doctors that I was just depressed. Finally got the nerve and switched doctors and she actually LISTENS to me. So I started Abilify 5 mg... Moved up to 10. At that point I've been in serious physical pain. My back HURTS!!! it feels like I've been walking around carrying a 300 lb person on my back. All I want is to lay down and have someone lie down on my back to put pressure and relieve that. Not just my back though. I'm feeling just totally achy everywhere. Legs, knees, shoulders. It's like no matter what I do I cannot get comfortable. Ibuprofen 800 mg is doing nothing. I just put Bengay on my back and it feels sort of good but I still can't get comfortable. Because of this I haven't slept in days. I feel terrible at work like I don't want to do a thing except sit there and wallow in my painful misery. I just increased Abilify to 15 mg yesterday. Felt a little different last night anxiety wise. But I felt really amped up like I was on speed then I crashed and was super tired. I was raking Xanax 0.5 but doc said anxiety is off the scale so I am now on Klonopin 2 mg twice a day. Took half this morning (my bedtime since I work nights) and I only slept maybe 30 min-hr. This doctor is my family Doctor. She said if I don't improve in 2 weeks she will refer me for psych eval. I'm thinking of calling Drs office about this pain. I can't function but I don't want to appear drug-seeking. Sorry for the random thoughts. Just hard to keep up with my mind all the time. Any recommendations anyone? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
