Four hours sleep last night, work for ten. Come home straight to bed. Can't be a normal 24 year old as unless in fighting through fire to work I'm crying in bed. What is the point to a life like this? This is no life.😡😡😡😭😭
Buddie, I'm so sorry you're hurting so bad you can't sleep. I think I was the exact same way when my Fibro was dx in 2012, and I'd been suffering since 2007, complaining of pain & not sleeping. After my sjogrens dx I was put on plaquenil which helped with the Fibro pain too. I'm on gabapentin for the Fibro but really don't feel it helps that much. But I had to start relaxing before bedtime (slow deep breathing & soft relaxing music), massaging voltaren gel where needed for leg cramps & back pain, and take anxiety meds, antidepressants, & melatonin. I'm finally at a point where I sleep 3-4 hours before walking, unless my pain is at a 7+ level. Then it's painsomnia! Hugs & prayers you can find ways to get sleep & relieve your pain! 🙂💕🙏🌼
Hi, I also have been through this, working through that pain, not sleeping. Yes it feels.like having no life. All I can do is put new hope in every day and any energy I have left to solving the pain issues, keep pressing the medical profession for better ways to manage it. Keep up with physio working with them to work out the best course forward.
