Can't sleep

Aug 18, 2015 5:27 AM

Can't sleep. My sides are achy and I'm exhausted. Blah

Aug 18, 2015 5:36 AM

Me too! And my feet are so swollen, I think they are going to split open! Blahhhhh!

I'm awake too. 😞 From stress, aching legs, headache, and nightmares. 🙏🌼

I'm sorry to hear that. Mine is mostly my fibro keeping me awake but anxiety too

Queermonkey98, usually it's fibro that keeps me awake too. My neighbor (& friend) killed himself yesterday... Hence the nightmares. When my fibro keeps me up I take a muscle relaxer, which my rheumy doc suggested. I hate fibro flares because it takes days to get over. I hope yours passes soon, and that you can either catch a nap today or sleep well tonight. 🙏🌼

It's not a flare so much as my fibro reacting badly to marching band. Oh well thought, I love marching band too much. I'm so sorry about your neighbor!

Thank you. I guess marching band would definitely do that! I had PT yesterday and she had me doing more than usual. I could tell it in my hips and thighs, but I'm sure it doesn't compare to marching band. My daughter did that for 5 the (Jr & High school). She did gentle stretches and iced a lot. 🙏🌼

Queermonkey98, I am sorry that you didn't sleep. Last night was the very FIIRST night I got some sleep. I'm still exhausted because I kept dozing and waking and if get perhaps 3-4 hours. I pray that you get some relief soon and are able to sleep. 💕🙏🏻🌻

36 hrs and counting here....also after two IV bags due to intense sports (because I was under a lot of stress and need to do something crazy), half my skin on my right shin skimmed off from grasss burns, pssts leaking out from bandage, my arms has them too. For the past week, I've not slep more than 2 hrs a day even.....I stay up 48 hrs, sleep 2-3 hrs wake up and stayed up again......my dr won't give me anything for it, I'm still trying all the over the counter stuff.

That's not healthy or safe for you octobot. Is there another doc you could see? I sure wish i knew some home remedy to give you. Praying and hoping you soon find something! 🙏🌼
