So, I'm back on Lyrica. I had to increase my dosage of insulin by roughly 60%, but sugars are more or less under control. Had some rough patches, but I'm mostly back to sleeping about 9 hours a night. CPAP says apnea is under control. By all rights, I should be, if not great, at least back to nominal.

But I'm not. And I don't know why.

I'm exhausted. My head is foggy. I feel slow and weary. Even sitting up at the computer is more than I can handle sometimes. And there's no reason for it.

I'd ask my GP, but he'd just tell me that there's nothing he can do. He's a good guy and he wants to help, but my problems are beyond him. I need a specialist.

I'd ask my sleep doctor, but she'd just tell me it's not her thing and I should get checked by my GP.

I'd ask a different sleep doctor, but I've seen most of the ones within 50 miles of here, and they've all long since given up on doing any better for me.

I am scheduled for a sleep study in a week or so. Probably won't show much, but worth a try. And the sleep doc does have some things to look into. A possible new medication, depending on how the sleep study goes. A different medication that recently came out. Further investigation into why testing showed no trace of melatonin in my body. Maybe some other things. If she'd ever call back, that is. She's not at all good about communication. In several respects.

Meantime, I'm on the couch. Because there isn't much else I can do.
