When you wake up at 3:00 a.m. crying PLEASE!!! You know you've done something wrong. I must have gotten behind on my meds. It will get better.

    there have been many nights when I just wake up from the pain. I would go to bed feeling normal (as normal as we can be) then couple hours later the pain just wakes me up.

    I never can put my finger on exactly why. Sometimes I think its because I did something that day I shouldnt have, was I sleeping the wrong way, etc

    Whatever the case, I can relate

  • I'm thinking about you today. Hope your pain has settled down a bit...

    There are lots of times I just want to cry. I am so sick and tired of hurting. It's not fair that you are going through so much pain. YOU BETTER TAKE IT EASY YOUNG MAN! DON'T MAKE ME COME OVER THERE!!!

  • Jim----can you set an alarm to take your meds?I dont want to see you go through this!!!!!How are you turning over in bed?
  • j.howiejj.howie Brentwood, Ca., USAPosts: 1,732
    Your all onto something. I'm a restless sleeper. And my sweats stick to the sheets making it hard to move. maybe I need to get some silk pajamas. No! I'd get too much crap that I crossed over to the other side. But sleeping nude and an alarm clock might do the trick! =))

  • I have been wondering how you have been, then I saw this post. When I wake up with pain and sweats I get up to take meds,change clothes and my bed (not my entire bed! Too much work! I always lay on a pad,towel,a folded sheet,anything comfortable yet easy to remove and replace...well, my husband makes me so he doesn't have extra work! LOL)then walk around before going back to bed. Maybe you can try to put something under you so when you wake up sweating you can replace it so you aren't laying on the wet sheets and put a towel close by to wipe the sweat off! I can't believe how much more sweat we produce when our pain levels rise. Take those meds to keep the pain down and take care of yourself!

  • I was always cold until I started taking pain meds and especially after my fusion. I used to wear sweats and get sweaty. Now AI have loong sleeve t-shirts and long cotton pajama bottoms. I have Iowa Hawkeye lounge pants. They seem to work well and sometimes I still need to change my tshirt sometimes. I also like to have a extra pillow. I seem to sweat on my head alot, and so I like a fresh cool pillow as well.
    I think it is the meds. But I have woke up the same way, and these are the things that help me get back to sleep. Also a pillow between my legs when I lay on my side. But more than an hour on my side and I wake up hurting, so I dont know what the answer is to that. It just helps to get off my back to sleep sometimes.
    Good Luck, and I hope you are having a better day. Love, Robin
  • Jim, sorry you are having a rough time, sleeping through the pain can be quite difficult.

    For those of you who have the night sweats problem, especially from your head, there is a product out there to help. Its called the "Chillow Pillow", its an insert beneath your pillowcase. Somehow it takes some of the heat off of you so you are more comfortable. Its helped me many times during my hot flashes. You can just google the name and find a link to buy, I think it was about $30.00.
  • a silk sheet??

    Take a walk on the wild side! :D
