My shoulder and neck have been bothering me for several days, and last night was the worst so far. The Ben Gay and OTC painkillers weren't helping any, so I broke down and took some Ultram, a fairly heavy-duty prescription painkiller. One of the side effects is supposed to be drowsiness, but instead of helping me sleep, it kept me awake almost the entire night in a weird, fuzzy, disconnected state. I finally fell asleep around 7:30 or so, only to be woken up by the phone about an hour ago. I'm afraid if I try to go back to sleep, I'll have trouble sleeping tonight and will feel like crap when I have to go to work tomorrow.
