I don't do this much for sure.
As I am very hopeful and strong and no one will talk that part of me away image:)" alt=">:)" height="20" /> image:)" alt=">:)" height="20" />

But yesterday morning I awoke with my neck stiff, it got worse through out the day and of course I was all medicated and it did not help much but a bit.
I'v been using my rice sock like all the time.

Now here is the kicker I take a percocet and soma at 11pm. And WHO IS AWAKE IN PAIN??? MUAH! :''( Gheesh louise its only 1:30am!! :jawdrop: :jawdrop: :jawdrop:
Here my back did ok today except for the morning and I have to take the dang meds all day anyway }:) }:) }:)

Its my neck /chest/shoulders/inbetween my shoulder blades, so its 1 either a fibro flare 2. the dang dog slept with us last night and I ended up twisting all over the bed UGHH I don't know. After I heat/medicate I am semi comfy so I won't attribute to my other issue going on now.

But for you of those that have had neck issues like myself you surely know, and man I feel your pain if you have it now.

Ok enough rambling. Going to read for a bit. Im sooooo tirreeddd, thats the worst when you can crash but can't because of something else #o #o

    hope you get some rest soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Oh Terri, why o why is it always something? :( I awoke with a pain in the neck too this am, of course then it gave me a roaring headache. And it was raining here in Cali finally and the increased barometric pressure = worse headache. So I went to PT and exercised with a headache, yuck :T . I want to take some excedrin! But no, I am not allowed to take NSAIDS. And Norco does nada for a headache.

    My kids went to work at the church harvest festival and they won't be home til the wee hours cause they are helping to disassemble the whole thing. So even if I could sleep, I can't sleep with my kids out, just not possible. I guess I 'll get over this when they move out, or not 8}

    So I am watching TLC with my heating pad and laptop. Ooops I need to go grow my bone (BGS)! Hope tomorrow is a better day for all. >:D< :* >:D< :* >:D< :* Darla

  • You know those dang 4 legged furry things that crawl into OUR beds (not theirs) and sprawl out like they own the place. Force us to twist and contort and who winds up hurting?! Not them!!!

    It just ain't fair. Why can't we sleep all night and wake up and wag our tails?

    Gotta love em though!!!

  • i sorry hunny your hurting to >:D< did you pass it to me???? if you did im coming after you.

    umm cali i read the bottle of excedrine. thats the only thing that helps my headaches. there is no motrin in them. just tylenol caffine etc. no NSAIDs

    we have crazy weather here. it was gorgous today go figure for halloween, but now its damp and chillllyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

    figures i have to go get blood work done for next friday and we are going to a rental place where i always go for new furniture. thats our xmas present and i need to be comfy when i come home. no stairs after the test, and who knows they may stent me there.

    i just want part of me back so that i can get my body back into some sort of shape. that does not help anyone at all being "out of shape" ugghh.

    ok im rambling =)) =)) percs and soma will do that =)) @) @)

    my meds are kicking innnnnn whoooo hooooooooo but the middle of my back still hurts.
    im being nice and letting the my grand puppy use the heating blanket. she has a UTI and is so swollen. she started her meds this afternoon.
    im such a nice grammy, don't like to see her hurt, cause they can't tell ya. but i can see it in her body movements and eyes 8> 8> 8> we need two blankies for emergencies =))

    love ya hunny TLC is da bomb.
  • she must of heard you or you sent special powers.
    she just came running down the stairs =)) =)) =)) =)) =)) =)) =)) <:P <:P
  • :) if you and your puppy are still up, drop by the "sleep problems" forum tonight. you can bring your rice bag with you! sorry to hear you aren't feeling very well this evening! ~X( take care! Jenny :)
  • Ok Ms Terri, you are three hours ahead of me, so I think you must of had the neck ache first! =)) So I am coming to get YOU! }:) Just kiddding :D Now I am a cat person, so no dog is gonna take over my bed, but my kitty likes to sleep by my feet :)

    Oh, and the Excedrin, if it is regular or migraine it has aspirin in it as well as tylenol and caffeine. Aspirin is an NSAID unfortunately. Now if you have Excedrin Tension it is only tylenol and caffeine. I did try that but no luck this am. I am a little better now. I have one kid home, the other still out. 18 doesn't mean there are no rules :T ! (at least not if ya wanna live in my house and drive my car :O ). So I am still up! I) I) I) I)
