Not sure if its the weather, or just a flare up but I am not sleeping properly again the last couple of weeks so constantly shattered and in pain. I hate the vicious circle that not sleeping causes but can't see a way out of it. I'm on Amatryptaline 50mg at night which is doing its job but the burning red hot pokers that shoot through my knee several times a night are driving me nuts. I hate dragging myself out of bed every morning exhausted and feeling spaced out at work due to maxing my painkillers during the night. Still I know I am a lucky one, I can still work (albeit in automatic pilot most of the time) and have a great family who seem to understand when I can't do things so I shouldn't complain i guess. Wishing you all a good and painfree weekend.
