Recently I have been having great trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep because of my pain. Does anyone have any suggestions of ways to deal-with /distract-from the pain. Or anything that might help me sleep. ♥️thank you
My new fibro medication knocks me out. It's called Gabapentin 300mg once at night. However, before I would try to watch a movie while laying in bed. Honesty, when it was really bad after taking my pain meds I would pray and rock until I fell asleep. When I hurt during the day I do the same. I go in my bedroom, turn down the blinds, make sure it's cool, and quite then take my pain meds and rock/pray until I fall asleep. I know this is not a solution but sometimes you can't distract yourself from the pain.
Melatonin is a great thing to have on hand. Also lavender works great as well. I have a lavender wax warmer in my bedroom as well as lavender linen spray. When these do. Not work I have found that an Advil pm works wonders
Melatonin nightly for sure. I just started 5-HTP Which is supposed to help with pain, anxiety and sleeping among other things. It has only been two days so I’m hoping it will help. You need to check with your doctor or pharmacist first.
