Do you have Apathy and what do you think is the cause?

Do you have apathy with your disease? I wonder if it comes from the opiates or the disease. I've lowered my meds but no change in apathy. It's most of the time, not all. I'm not sure if I need a different anti-depressant or what. What is your take?

I'm already taking 300 mg of Lyrica a day plus 2 mg klonopin at night for restless leg. Still interrupted sleep, what more can a person do?

I've tried Eucalyptus lotion, which helps falling asleep, but not continuously through the night. So tired of being tired.

Why more pain as I try to relax?

I've noticed, like this evening, when we had our Celebrate Recovery meeting (where I'm the ministry leader), that I did pretty good there, but once I got home and began to "relax", the pain really set in. To the extreme! Curious why that is.

My hands have been just with me for several years, and showing deformity, It is also in my knees my hands, shoulders and my neck. Will I end up with no mobility? Will I be in a wheelchair?
