Here is a tip: Getting released from the hospital often means coming home to a bunch of overdue stuff. Bills, overdue work assignments, fights with insurance companies over the hospitalization, friends, co-workers, and family members who subconsciously resent your unplanned and undesired hospital "vacation" -- there are plenty of stress points.
The problem with stress points is that stress is a primary trigger for a CPT2 episode. Coming out of the hospital, you will likely be exhausted, sleep deprived (unless you can sleep through blood draws), stressed out, and a bit disoriented. Exhaustion and sleep deprivation are also triggers.
So with that as prologue, I came home yesterday, and by mid-morning, I was feeling moderate muscle pain. My urine was back to being cloudy. I took that as a cue to pretend I'm still in the hospital and cut out as many trigger events as I could. I'm going to try to get my CK checked tomorrow and hopefully today's episode was just a minor blip. I really don't want to be readmitted.
