MORNING PAIN

  • I wake up every morning to that horrible headache. My ex pm doctor told me to do yoga as soon as my feet hit the floor in the morning.....notice I said ex pm doctor. I went last week for a sleep study, headaches in the morning are a big sign of sleep apnea. My doctor's will try anything to blame my pain on anything buy my spine.

  • That I have found to work besides taking my meds and waiting for them to kick in so that I can begin my day. I take them earlier now so that I can start functioning earlier... if I wait to late in the am my day is shot, which I hate. My MS told me last week that is normal, after being asleep etc and with time it will go away....but could take up to 18- 24 months. UGHHHH! I have the patience of Jobe, but even mine are wearing thin after 5 months.
    Hang in there, I know what it feels like!

  • Life changing for sure. I don't even know the old me at all. I use to go out at night but that come to a stop, when night gets here I am so worn down. I use to paint and garden, that stopped. I would just like to wake up one morning and feel refreshed. Maybe this sleep study will show something that can be corrected, it takes up to 3 weeks to get the results. I did start seeing a shrink about a month ago and he put me on Remeron and it does seem to help with my mood. My spine surgeon sent me to him because he thinks I have anxiety over my neck surgery. I will give anything a try and if it helps just a little bit it is worth it. 2 years the end of this month since my last surgery, long time to feel the way I do.

    That's when I'm the worst. when my feet hit the floor I generally know how the day will be. To bend over to put something on Is usually killer. I get downstairs as quick as I can and get the coffee going and take a methadone with the half made coffee so maybe it will get in my system faster! I don't take pain meds at night past 9:00 pm. Cause I have bad side effects. So in the morn. I'm dying. I can't move to much for 2 hrs.
    Good luck, Jim

  • It's gotten better since my surgery, I'm not in as much pain. My routine has been to get up about 2 hours before I need to be up. I do a potty run, take my muscle relaxer and go back to bed for 2 hours. Then the muscle relaxer kicks in. But even with that, I'm still very slow the first couple hours I'm up.

    I hope you can find something to help. Have you tried one of those heating/massage pads? Maybe if you lay on that for a bit it could help?

    Best wishes,
    EM

    Last night I took a methadone just before bed, about 10:30 or 11:00 and decided to tuff out the side effects. My wife went to the guest room shortly after I fell asleep and the violent "twitching" began. Which I don't remember.
    This morning when I woke up after 8 hrs. sleep I was tired and did not want to get up. Partly because I was still sleepy and tired. And partly because when I'm on my back In my bed with memory foam. there is no pressure on my spine. But when I forced myself to get up and my feet hit the floor, I was in very little pain. But it could not have been quality sleep because I woke up tired and after being up for 2 hrs. and falling asleep at the kitchen table having my coffee. I feel tired drugged and hung over! By the way that last pill I took is in my contract. I just don't like to take it for obvious reasons.
    I have to drive down to the valley to a dentist appointment today. About 2 hrs. away. This is not going to work well.
    Good luck, Jim

  • I take a extended release narcotic mscontin 60mg at night and oxazepam 30mg and flexeril and now I wake up and able to get out of bed right away. It's helped since I got the facet joint injection and the epis also. But I think it's the meds. Also are you on anything like amitriptyline or lyrica for nerve pain? Sorry you're having so much pain.
