hi, i have an 8x8cm cyst i have no problems falling asleep, but at 4am/5am i wake up for a wee but then i get back pain, hip pain and pain from the cyst just inside my pelvis, i then take ibuprofen and cocodamol and use a wheat bag but it just won't go and i can't get back to sleep. Is it because i am lying down? is so i need to lie down to sleep!
it doesn't subside until at least 11am, it's worse when i need to do a bowel movement, i get 5 mins relief until the pain builds back up. driving is very painful, the burning pain in the hip mainly. but will carry on through the day on and off
It's affecting my sleep, my work, my life in general, i have 5 weeks left til my lap but i can not go on with this pain. i do not want to take much cocodamol as it makes me constipated which then makes my belly more uncomfortable but i am loathed to take tramadol as it's strong.
trying to get a GP appt but do people have any other tips or natural solutions that have helped them?
