After relaxing most of yesterday on the heating pad, I decided to take a nice warm shower before going to bed to help my muscles relax. I was in bed and probably drifted off to sleep by 11:00 and was rudely and horribly awakened at 0100 with waves and waves of spasms. They were so bad, I could barely sit up on the side of the bed.
I tried the heating pad, no good! I tried the massage chair and that didn't work! Neither did drinking lots of water yesterday and 8 ounces when I was first awakened. I tried sitting up in my husbands recliner, reclining, rocking and then laid on the couch, first on my back, then my side. I cannot do this another night, the pain is unbearable and it totally wipes me out the next day. The only reason I even get up and get out of bed is for the kids.
We had Tiger Scouts this afternoon and the one thing I was thankful for was they took a field trip to the local newspaper office and the scout master gave me permission to drive over there and meet them. I was able to sit for most of the presentation.
My bones hurt, my muscles hurt and I am getting a migraine and yet, I have been told to NOT take any medication. If I have another night like last night, I have to contact my doctor and see what he suggests, I simply cannot function like this in any way and driving is awful, my hips and back hurt so badly I am soon going to need to have others drive me around again and that will just push me over the edge!
