Okay as some of you guys probably know, I've been dealing with pelvic pain off and on for close to 9 months. It usually gets more intense just when I want to lie down and go to bed. Well tonight, I've got a bit of an issue. Just had 2 abscesses lanced in the surgeons office this morning. Can't lay on my back because of my leg. If I move, it starts throbbing. Can't lay on my left side or my stomach because of pelvic pain. Anybody have any ideas? Leg pain right now is tolerable, but I can't use my normal distraction method which is the bathtub cause dressings can't be changed for 24 hours total. Any ideas? I'm just desperate to get some sleep!
Amanda, when I had for surgery I had to prop with pillows. If I laid flat not only would my GERD flare, the coccyx pain flares up with my sciatic nerve. I positioned six pillows short of like a chevron or arrow tip, rotating left and right, and place a rolled quilt (baby) in the small of my back. If you don't have melatonin, do you have benadryl or Tylenol PM? It helps to sleep. Good luck and best wishes for sweet dreams. I know you're awful tired by now! 🙏🌼
I totally understand. When we were in FL earlier this week I told my hubby I couldn't breathe well because my head was study. We were 6 miles from the beach but the air was oppressive from the storms. Hope you feel better soon. 🙏🌼
