24 Hours of Pain (No Sleep) 😣 #fibropain

Aug 09, 2017 7:37 AM

The areas that hurt the most for me is my legs, arms, ankles, and feet. It keeps me up all night. If I try to walk it feels like the bones in my legs are going to shatter. My arms hurts to the touch and my fingers get really stiff and ache really bad. I'm very annoyed right now especially having NO sleep.

I'm so sorry you're in so much pain and it interups your sleep. I hope it gets better for you.

Thanks so much LittleLola. I'm sleepy I just can't sleep because the pain is really bad. Hopefully, I will just pass out from exhaustion.πŸ˜•

Thank you all.... usually my body just has to get so tired it forces me to fall asleep. I've been up for almost 24 hours... soon Ill fall asleep due to being extremely exhausted. πŸ™

MochaBarbee have you tried soaking in a warm-hot bath with Epsom bath salts for at least 20 minutes? The magnesium in the salts and the heat help relax your muscles, I also sometimes add a few drops of lavender essential oil as well to help relax my mind further.
Sometimes if even that doesn't help I give up on trying to sleep and play some sleep meditation music low and put some lavender essential oil on my pillow and rest or if I can meditate. I don't really sleep but it helps my body rest for a little bit and I do it as many times as needed.

I'm sorry there's not much more I can think of now but if I do think of anything else I'll let you know.

Sending you positive vibes and warm healing hugs xx

Yes, I've tried that. Actually my grandma told me about that home remedy. It helps my anxiety and depression. Thanks you so much for the tip and vibes. I really appreciate it! 😊

I sure hope you can get some sleep tonight. That makes me sad for you.

Honestly, if pain keeps me up two nights in a row, if I can't sleep on the third I go to the hospital and explain myself. I accept however they want to deal with it, except steroids, as they make my pain much worse. I still feel uncomfortable going for "just pain", by my fiancΓ© will remind me that it's perfectly reasonable to do so.

@MochaBarbee. I'm sorry I just saw your post 😐 How are you feeling ? I hope you was able to get some rest πŸ€—πŸ€—

I can never get a descent amount of sleep. Last night I couldn't get to sleep until it was past 4am. I makes me so irritable!😣

Awe. Have you tried sleeping pills ?

Aug 11, 2017 12:00 PM

I take sleeping pills because I wasn't sleeping at all. Now I still only sleep 2-3 hours. Then I'm half-asleep for hours.

Westerngirl - I take Tylenol PM or sleeping Teas. That's it. I dont need another prescription medication to take.

CorinnaCoulson12 - yes fibromyalgia sucks!

Aug 11, 2017 8:11 PM

I know the feeling, I was having fibromyalgia pain all last week and I couldn't sleep because my back and legs were hurting so bad. I have been using a meditation and pain on YouTube if you just put that in sometimes it helps me to relax and go to sleep. I know all too well about pain going these last couple of years without healthcare. I felt like I was being tortured everyday.

@MochaBarbee. I understand that one all too well. Doctor put me on sleeping pills . I never take it .

Aug 12, 2017 1:26 AM

I tried one in the hospital it have a horrible effect on me. It made me extremely restless and when I fell asleep it didn't feel like I was in a deep sleep. I still could hear everyone around me. It's scared the heck out of me. 🀀 After that experience "No Way" I'll take a sleeping pill again.
