Another Bad Night

Night after night the pain throughout my body is waking me up... My husband has said before I wake up properly I'm crying out on pain. It's making him feel so helpless because when it's that bad he can't even comfort me😪 The additional thing that is happening is I have dreadful pins and needles in both arms. Just through the night but during the day, acute shooting/stabbing pains. Feeling low today, but moan over. On dental reception til 5 so smiles to all xx

  • i know all about that, sorry to hear your going through this. i get the pins n needles in the arms, horrible! and although i live alone i know i must be crying out in my sleep before waking as my cat is sat staring at me his fur on end. hope you get some relief soon (hugs)

  • Rubbish isn't it! Meds don't really work either😔 I have pain management assessment next week, yay! Hugs back 🙂

  • it is, docs are far too scared to give proper pain relief. good luck with the assessment ☺

  • Thank you 🙂

  • I am sure that is why so many of Mus have such poor, disjointed sleep because of the pain. We get comfy, turn in our sleeping to a part of our body that hurts and the next thing you are sitting upright in terrible pain wondering what is happening, probably in q cold sweat as well. It is so draining and so difficult to relax afterwards. The shooting pains are terrible as they can suddenly happen just lurk electric shocks.

    I can imagine your OH feel hopeless s they hate to see us in pain. My OH suffers with anxiety and depression so I do try to not say too much but sometimes it is so difficult to hide the pain and fatigue. I really admire you for holding down a job I do wish I could still do mine. Take care hope work wasn't too bad.x

  • Thank you for your reply... That's exactly what happens. Just got the hospital for another blood test ! I did have 2 different jobs, but have given one up now as just too pain and draining to do xx

  • cel71 , I'm sorry to hear your in do much pain you cry out in your sleep... that's sad!! Do you take any meds? Your husband sounds so kind.I wish you the best.Peck

  • I too have this and have cried in my sleep and woken dreaming that I'm at the Drs asking for pain relief. It's hard I know.

    I don't know I'd hot or cold treatments might help?

    Again, I use Volterol, as I find this does help a little.

    Good luck and best wishes 😊

  • Thank you all for your kind words of support... here's to a better night xx

  • Hi cel71

    I am so genuinely sorry to read this and I sincerely hope that you can find some relief and resolution to these issues. I can imagine that you find this so draining and demoralising. It may be a good idea to discuss this with your doctor just to get other medical conditions ruled out of the equation and see if you can ascertain alternative medication that may help with this?

    I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck, and please take care of yourself.

    All my hopes and dreams for you
