Cant SLeep


Ive been up for what seems ages Ive read a bit and came on here.

Ive been told i have tennis elbow ad to rest it-its my left elbow and im left handed- the pain now shoots down to the fingers and up to the shoulder.Even have problems doing up my jeans, putting on socks etc

.I now use a tray for a drink far better than a staw ad use both hands to pick up mug. Ive tried numerous pain killers,codeine gives me a headache along with pretty much other things except paracetamol but even taking them the pain is still there.

Feel wide awake now so given up thought of going to bed,today the only day this week ive not got an appt.

must have been one of those nights, I couldn't sleep and am now knackered. I know about the pain in the left arm, I've had this for weeks, arm feels weak/numb and shoulder area, and discomfort around the left rib cage, just one of the side effects of the meds I guess, but hope they disappear soon. Hope you get better soon, and have a better nights sleep.
