And on some days it just pains.

I have spinal injuries.

Most of the time they slow me down, cost me 30 IQ points and make me grumpy. Enough pain that I can't work an 8 hour day.

Occasionally, the pain level goes up. Changing position on the bed makes me whimper. Leaning over to pick something off the table when standing makes me gasp. Getting up off a chair makes me scream.

Days like today.

I am really sorry. I wish I had something good to say.

2x 10mg Codeine, 500mg Paracetamol and I feel almost human.

The difference is remarkable.

Over the counter codeine is good, but I need to bitch at my doctor about straight codeine or Codeine/Aspirin/Caffeine. Back in the day I was on 256mg/day of Codeine and was almost fully functional for the 20-30 hours a week I was able to do anything, as opposed to lower doses where I'm barely functional.

What about it do you think diminished your IQ? How long has it been this way? MRI?

IQ reduction is due entirely to distraction from the pain. I was beaten to death in December 1990.

My symptoms make little sense because a lot relate to anoxic damage to my CNS from being dead for between 30 and 90 minutes. Being some sort of creepy mutant has downsides dealing with Doctors.

I had MRI in the year or so after I was injured, there's a lot of damage to my spine and some to the spinal chord.

I wish I could heal it for you.
