I have had a really rough time sleeping the past couple nights, partially due to breathing problems and partially due to pain issues.
The breathing issues are dependent on a lot of factors - today is much better!! But, I think I have figured out part of the pain issues.
First, my hip has been hurting me. I figured out then when I prop my feet up at night (to relieve fluid build up in my ankles and feet), I have not been supporting my knees, which is in turn putting a lot of pressure on my hjps. So I will be making sure my knees are supported from now on, and hopefully that will help.
Second, my neck and shoulder have been hurting me. This is the part of my body where I carry my stress. Hubby was very sweet and bought me a heating pad today, which I think will help tremendously.
Third, I have begun clenching my jaw so hard at night that I am waking up with jaw pain. I am hoping the jaw clenching is due to the other pain and once that is relieved the clenching/jaw pain will stop.
Anyway, hoping/praying for a good night's sleep!!
