Pain too intense to sleep.

Feb 16, 2017 8:39 AM

Over the last 7 days I have had about 10 hours of sleep. Well if thrashing around in bed, while screaming in pain is called sleep...and that's on pain killers...heading off to the doctor tomorrow because I can't keep going like this. I need to sort this pain out.

Hi Xahara, I'm sorry you're having so much pain. I know what you're going through with no sleep. I once went 9 days with no sleep. Nothing I took helped. I'm sleeping more now but not much more. I think it's a good idea to go to doctor. I hope he/she can help you.

I've had the same issues.. this week alone I've had only between and hour or two of sleep and then was zero sleep for Tuesday night and Thursday night. It's exhausting. Everyone tells me that I moan when I sleep. They wake me up because they say it sounds like I'm having myself a good time and meanwhile I'm moaning in pain. I hope you get some rest. I feel like I'm going to fall on my face..

So I went to the doctor yesterday and she gave me a form of anti-depressants to try for the next 2 weeks. If this doesn't work she will send me to the pain management specialist. She doesn't want to send me there yet because we are trying to fall pregnant and they will be limited to what meds they can give me.
