Well, my fingers are still crossed. I feel great after yesterday's lumbar injection. I virtually have no pain in my right side, and hip and leg. I dont know if it was the injection or my upgraded meds or both , but whatever it is Im very greatful. I also tried Lunesta last night for the first time. 8 hours of sleep for the first time in 4 years.

  • It is so nice that you are relieved from the pain. I think I am gonna ask my NS if he can prescribe something for me to sleep. I too can never get a full nights sleep, well like almost everyone here. Now do you get that "hungover) feeling from the Lunesta? Do you have to have a full 8 hours in order to not get the hungover feeling? And from what I remember the Lunesta is non narcotic, correct? thing is I have a high tolerance to meds,unfortunately. I have taken 2 Valium and still didn't sleep. I think they were only 5 or 10mg I can't remember it has been so long. I actually tossed them because I tried it a few nights in a row with no luck and didn't want them around the house. Anyway let me know your side effects if any from the lunesta. Tahnk you in advance MJ
  • I hope that the relief is long lasting for you!
