    I had the most horrific pain ( except at child-birth maybe) only this was a nerve pain. I had had a hard day worrying about a test my husband was having and having to drive out of the city as he had had anathesia and I don`t drivein the city any more.I took my night time meds and went to bed. Apparently because of my tiredness I slept for 6 hrs. on my right side without rolling over. I awoke about 6 o`clock in the most terrible pain, It`s hard to put it in words. I finaly got to the bed-room door and my hubby heard me.I could hardly move and the pain was undescribable.He got me a pain med. and I laid down on my other side and my body just spasamed. sp.I had never had that happen before. I was afraid to go to bed the next nite and set my alarm clock so I could roll over in the night. Has anyone else ever had this experiense? I have been completely washed out every since.We want to go to Florida for the winter and I`m almost afraid to take the trip but my husband needs to get out of the cold weather. ( two open heart surgeries ) This is the terrible disease , it looks like no-one is interested in trying to find a cure or even meds. that don`t have to be narcotics to hold the pain at bay. A sad picture of our country when millions are suffering so. Clueless

    Hi clueless, I have had bad pains in my side (L) lately so much so I cant turn over in bed by myself and even with help it hurts so much I thought I must have busted something, I have no idea what it is but put it down to FM, Im just to tired to go to my doctor when something new comes along so I try and ride it through.I hope you get some relief from this DD. I wish we had someone to turn to that would help us, but I dont think anyone really understands untill it happens to them and then its just to late for them to do much. The cure is probably simple and would save $$$ all over the world if only they would provide more $$$ to look into it now. Its good to have others to talk to who know, )))))HUGS((((( Pam.

    Thanks for taking the time and interest to answer my post.I guess I don`t come across very good in my posts as I never get many answers so I really appreciate yours. It was the lying on one side for 6 hrs. steady that did it. I now set my alarm so I will not sleep that way again.It scared me the pain was so intense!!! Thanks again!

    I thought you came across VERY clear! I'm new here, and I've realized that this is a large community, and posts move quickly here! My son has Epilepsy and other special needs, and I post on an Epilepsy board where I can actually keep up with the posts. The "speediness" of this board (or is it the 'slowness" of my brain??) is new to me, so I've been doing a lot of reading.

    I don't have any wonderful words of wisdom, but I wanted to tell you that I'm sorry that you're in so much pain. I'm also sorry to hear about your husband's surgeries. My husband has Crohn's Disease/IBS, and my son w/special needs has had 5 brain surgeries. I know that it's hard enough when we're sick, and then we have to be caregivers, too!
    I will keep you and your husband in my prayers!

    Take care...
