Have you ever noticed when you wake up that your pain is gone, then a second later it hits you hard, then the next second it dies down a little bit and stays like that for the rest of the day? Or is it just me?

Hi cy,

Interesting thought. I'm going to guess it depends on the person and type of pain. I have fibromyalgia and the pain wakes me up. It's with me 24/7. When I first wake or get up it's usually worse and may ease up after I move around for a while. Let's see what others think.

When I wake up in the morning, I can tell my back and legs are "simmering" with pain and stiffness but I don't actually start feeling the pain until I've been up for about a half hour to an hour. My pain however gets more pronounced as the day goes on but it depends on what I am doing or have done. If I am more active, then the pain can be intense but if I am more relaxed then it stays just above the "simmering" stage. I agree though that it depends on the type of pain and inflictions.

My pain is actually at it's lowest at night (well, in part due to my bedtime mix of meds!) and when I first awaken. I absolutely love my memory foam mattress (yes, the big name one ...paid a pretty penny a couple of years ago and it was the best investment I ever made, tho' I could never afford it now) and when I'm lying flat in the morning I actually have some pain free moments. I really hate getting out of bed because I know it goes downhill from there. Even though I do have some pain in bed, it's at a lower lever. From the time my feet hit the floor the numbness starts, and then the back/butt/leg pain - which worsens as I'm walking or sitting, or with any increase in activity. Some days I spent 12 or more hours in bed, and have to really force myself to get up. And it's the grogginess from the meds, but also the fact it's the lowest pain level I have.

I know exactly what you all are saying.  I feel so good...and then I have to get up!  When I wake up there is no pain until my brain kicks in...then it's hobble down the stairs and from there it's pain all day, no matter what I am doing.  Why is that?  Is it really because my brain doesn't recognize the pain at first?  I understand that after so long being in pain your whole body, not just your brain, is very sensitive and it registers the pain right off the Richter scale.  I actually (sadly, maybe) look forward to taking my evening meds because I will have less than an hour of feeling better and then I can go to sleep!!
