Oh yes, I know about that burning pain!!! I've had it in my right arm for a long time now. Came from a buldging disk. My neck still hurts, and my lower back is bad, also. My my, aren't we a pair! LOL! Sorry, not making fun of your pain. This burning pain is nothing to laugh at, to be sure!!!
I hope you can find some relief from something, and I hope this pool helps!!!
Wow, sorry to hear about this, and so late! I don't even know if you still seek answers or not? But, here goes... I have chronic pain from nerve damage, i never get a good nights sleep till i am so very tired. I take 700mg.s of morphine a day, three of those 100mg tabs at bedtime. Plus my P.C.P. has me taking Ambien for sleep, it helps me to fall asleep, but not to stay asleep. The best thing i have found that helps me sleep longer, and better, is exersise. The more i can do during my day, the better my sleep. I still never sleep through the night, i always wake up often, but its better than nothing.
If you can, and ask your doctor first, try an exersise program of some sort, and stay as active as possible during the day.
I too, have this problem. Fall asleep ok, but cannot stay asleep. This has been going on for a very long time. It started when i was in the Army, i was only 22. Now at 54, i still have this problem. Right now, my Dr. has me trying Ambien/Zolpidem. At first, it helped a little, not so much now. I've tried everything i can think of, all to no avail. Dr's can't help. What to do???View Thread
