I have had very little sleep since Sunday.
I have been in allot of pain, a different type of pain than what I usually have. It is familiar, it reminds me of what was happening to me last year about this time except this is 100 times worse.
The first night (Sunday night) I had taken my regular meds and went to bed. I woke up about 2 hours after I had fallen asleep, I was in incredible pain in my joints. So intense. I did my best to stretch everything and move each joint---it took a long time. I eventually went back to sleep only to awaken about an hour later with the same intense pain. I spent most of the night awake and kept taking more medications which I never do at night.
So, each night since then it has worsened. Last night for example, I woke up about 45 minutes after falling asleep. I would fall asleep and awaken minutes later with the same intense pain. So, I have had very little sleep to say the least. And stiff----incredible stiffness. Shoulder, pelvis, knees, ankles, lower back, kidney area---everywhere.
I haven't taken much Vicodin since I have to monitor that. I dipped into the Tramadol I had left instead.
So, here I go tonight hoping it's not another night from hell. It's times like this that mixing some of these meds becomes tempting.
Here goes nothing________
What a mess!!!
