    My feet and legs are bothering me so bad that can't get relaxd enough to sleep.

    We had to take our son to the E.R. again today, I may look like a mother who has gone wacko but with his seizures I don't like to take chances.

    They gave him Ativan because he was feeling so sick I was ready to ask for some for me also.

    I feel really sleepy but everytime I lie down the pain keeps me from drifting off to sleep.

    i started taking the pain patch about 6 months ago and its like its already not wking hardly.
    i was soo thrilled not to hurt anymore-
    it was almost like a bad dream id been having.
    now its all back and i am just heartbroken that you are in this much oain , and havent had any relief at all.
    atleast i got to kinda have a respite for a few months..

    i pray you can get relief soon
    cause i know without rest-
    it just makes it sooo much worse for you dear one.

    don't mean that to sound insensitive...it is not right that you can't sleep. it is truly imho a horror. i go through the same thing. last night i tried skipping the flexeril and ambien (been on for one week), cuz ive continued to feel nausea, then realized...as bad as all the side effect are, and as certain as i am that there must be some simpler, healthier alternatives (can anyone say "stress relief"?! sounds like you are under a lot of stress...), for now that's all ive got. sucks to lie in bed just feeling the details of every ache and pain! i took ambien and got some** sleep last night.
