I feel your pain and frustration!!!!!!! Sleep is such a vicious cycle for us. We can never get enough and the less we get the worse we will feel in regards to our diseases. I have Lupus and Fybro and it is painful at nights. My pain is my legs and they will throb all night long and it is very hard to sleep. My doctor has given me Ambien to help me sleep. They have saved me soooooooo many nights. I hated taking them at first but once the doctor explained to me what the consequences were going to be IF I didn't sleep, I was on board! I also take Lyrica at night before bed for the Fybro pain and Tramadol for the pain that is left. This combination actually helps me a lot. I would talk to your doctor about taking something to help with the sleep issues. You do not want to get to behind on your sleep or you could possibly start flaring up. I have learned over the years and from my love, Oluwa, that sleep is key in the management of our disease. I am sending you thoughts of a restful nights sleep and lots of gentle hugs
As I grow to understand life less and less,
I learn to love it more and more.
