I've been looking in my pill book and nothing points to this either. Since I can't get hold of my neuro or my rheumy and the pharmacist seems clueless (kinda scary), I'll try it one more night and then I think I'm giving up. It just hurts too much. Imagine major charlie horses that no amount of stretching or moving around will aleviate. I don't know what else to do. I can't keep hurting worse than I already do, ya know?
To answer your question about it helping me sleep is no. It does just the opposite, keeps me up all night. Have left several messages at my neuro's office, no answer so I went to my PCP today. He said the Restoril is DEFINATELY the culprit. He told me not to take it and gave me some samples of Lunesta, which I'll try tonight. If it works I'll call either my neuro or PCP and get a scrip for it. Wish me luck. Thanks for the morale boost.
Much better today. Went to a pain clinic today. I fell and broke my tail bone back in June. It's not healing right. Hurts like it has since the day I broke it. I know the my AS has set into it now too. Anyway, doc was awesome. He's willing to do some things others were not. Working on getting my own TENS unit, increased my Celebrex. Here's hoping it works!
