Dialysis is Not Much Fun at All

I have been on dialysis for a long time now, longer than I really care to think about. It is really not much fun. I get up around a quarter to six in the morning, then I go in there and spend four hours hooked up to a machine that does the work your kidneys should do. That means the machine cleans your blood and removes the fluid that should be lost through urination. I have been looking for a solution to my cramping issues, and I was hoping that the Soma pill might be a good fix for that issue, but it seems that the doctor is less enthused for some reason or another. At any rate it does what I need, supposedly helping to fix your issues with stiffness and pain from cramping. However it does not seem to be a solution for me, apparently because of my kidneys.
