How am i meant to sleep?

Sorry for moaning but my knees, hips and ankles hurt so much and ive had all my meds....God i hate fibro! Got such a busy day tomorrow but does my fibro care? no it does not......tomorrow is a massive day for me, my 14 year old son who has Aspergers syndrome leads his football team onto the pitch to play the first of the 3 finals they have qualified in this season ( first club in history!) But my pain wont behave....i feel so angry that the pain is taking the pleasure is should feel away from me and all im thinking am i going to get through the day?

Hi all, after 18 years of FMS I finally got some kip and am now sleepin (almost) like a baby! Courtesy of 75 - 100mg Pregablin each night. Might not work for everyone but I felt an immediate difference and get to sleep at least 7 hours. While the kids have been off for easter Ive even been waking up at 7ish, taking my Tramadol, then back to sleep for another couple of hours - bliss! Sleep is so important to your mental health. Only went on the drug in September and it took a few weeks to start having an effect on my joints (about 7 actually), but biggest change was in my sleeping and mood. Made me feel like I can cope with anything my fibro throws at me! x
