Pain keeping me awake

Apr 01, 2017 7:44 PM

Hi Janet,
Between fibromyalgia and spinal injury keeping me awake they are both arm wrestling for dominance during the night. Pretty much it's a tie at this point. Methocarbamol usually will help me relax enough to fall asleep.

I've only recently been diagnosed with fibro. Seems to get worse at night.

I'm so sorry because I know it's terrible. I hope you find something that will get you relief. I know that CBD's are helpful but not everybody can take them.

A friend of mine has recommended me to someone for cbd. I've been told it really helps x

Lyrica Also just a side comment, never let anyone make you feel like your pain is a result of not taking care of yourself, lack of exersize, to much exersize, overweight, diet, or any number of reasons. The truth is you have no control over the pain, or when it flares up.

Thanks

Yes! Do not let anyone tell you that it's all in your head or other such nonsense! I think that was one of the hardest lessons for me to learn in my Fibro journey.

Thank you. Just so frustrated gone from being active almost nothing I've tried light exercise but most days my body will not allow me out of bed
