30/365 Sleep

Thursday, January 31, 2013

emoticon This it the hardest thing for me - SLEEP.

I wake up during the night to go to the bathroom - - - so I try not to drink too much after 7 emoticon

I wake up in pain - - - so I been sleeping on the couch (it helps to elevate my legs & back)

I wake up w arm numb - - - I try to use the pillows to hold my neck right

Some nights like last night are really bad. I slept on the couch; on the floor; on the bed; on the love seat and then back onto the floor.

Prayerfully the paperwork is correct and my insurance is being process dont understand why 45 days but @ least the process is started. Then once its all started I can work on getting my follow up test done and see what can be done for the continual pain where I had the spinal fusion and for the nerve issues in my neck.

Well night all and may sleep and I get along tonight emoticon

    I hope you are able to resolve the sleep problems once your insurance kicks in and you get back to regular doctor care!

    Maga, nights suck! That's even what my doc says to me. I try to tell him I have a TV for distraction but he insists that at night it is much harder to keep your mind off the pain. It sounds like you are more like me, thinking a change in the surface will help but with not much luck.

    I can't recall, do you still have pain medication or are you just suffering along until the insurance is finally worked out?

    emoticon when ever you think you can, since nights give no guarantee.
