Pain

I discovered that when I'm feeling most restless or unable to settle and keep circling around doing too much it's both when my pain level is extraordinarily high and I have a very fast heart rate at the same time (over 100 resting). I'm wondering if the two (pain and heart rate) aren't related. When I take pain medicine, some of the restlessness goes away, but not enough. Right now my pain level *with* medication is higher than it usually is without! It looks like it's going to be an unsettled day.

I realized I now actually have 15 medical specialists, but 3 of them I haven't seen in a while. That doesn't count eye doctor, dentist, orthodontist, and maybe I shouldn't count internist. And some of the doctors wonder why I won't do regular appointments but only come in for problems! Time management....

Acupuncture, acupuncture...
