The sleep apnea is being treated with CPAP but I see the sleep specialist tomorrow to follow up on rheumy's request. I posted before that rheumy says the cortical arousals could still be an issue. Cortical arousals aside, I just didn't sleep very well last night and am definitely paying for it today! I have been feeling pretty decent the past couple of weeks, but this morning was definitely a bit more achy. Driving home from work, my shoulder belt hurt me in front of my shoulders more than it ever has. Lately, it would be okay if I moved the belt from near my neck further out near my shoulder, but nothing worked today. Even my feet have been hurting again. What's weird is that I wouldn't call what I have severe pain - in fact, it seems strange to call it "pain" sometimes because it isn't like a knife jab or anything. It hurts with a different type of pain. Anyway, I wasn't hurting severely, but it was just the type that made me want to cry. I don't usually get that way. Sometimes, is it the TYPE of pain even more than the severity that makes you feel so bad?
