Usually around the time that I hit the bedroom around 9 or so I start getting this pain in my right lower shoulder blade that is terrible? Sometimes depending on how I lay it hurts to even breath. I just took a percocet so I already know that by taking that I will be up all night long. I really always seem like I have to weight out taking my pain meds because anything less that percocet's and it really doesn't do anything for the pain. My doctor gave me darvocet, yeah that feels like taking 3 tylenols. I'm afraid I need to go to something stronger, but yet I feel like I don't want to take yet another pill. PS I'm very stressed out right now because I was contemplating on going to my kids bio father's aunts funeral, although I knew her very well, I did go by the house and pay my respects, the thought of dealing with all the "old" family not to mention seeing my bio kids father, rather him seeing our youngest son (that he has only seen once since birth and he is 12), yeah, I think that has def put me over the limit as far as stress shakehead , anyway I'm rambling, about the lower shoulder blade thing, anyone else get this???

Hi Monica!

Gosh, is sounds like you need a huge dose of relaxation. Stress like that send my pain thru the roof. I also have a lot of shoulder pain but mine is all during the day. When I lay down at night it still hurts but starts to ease up, depending how I lay. That area is a very common one for fibro pain to ge wild.

BUT...please do talk to your doc about it...OK? It could be something else and your medical team is the one to diagnose it. My mother suffered intense pain between her shoulder blades for weeks on end. Doctors treated her for a pulled muscle until she had a massive heart attack. I'm not saying you have a heart problem because mom had other things going on too, but it's an example of how our body fools us.

Talk to your doc about your pain control, or lack of, and let him decide on the amount you need. He will respect and trust you for it rather than asking for something specific.

Keep in touch!

Monica,

     Hi girl...Night time knots are awful. There are times when I can use a corn bag (or rice bag) to relieve these things. I put the corn bag on the spot and lay on it. Sometimes the heat and the pressure relaxes the spasms enough I can sleep.

     Of course it could be something else as Chutz said. Sometimes in the middle of the night I have to hit a hot bath. Waiting for pain meds to work can be awful. Been there done that.

      Excedrin works for me. I know the caffeine is not good for us but when I am in extreme pain it works better than anything I've tried. I drink milk with crackers to keep my stomach at bay, then the Excedrin, then rest in a hot bath til it kicks in.

      I wish you relief and answers. This forum is a good place to find both..... Blessings

Monica, I would bring this up to your doc cause gallbladder can cause pain in that area too. We do tend to blame fibro for all aches and pains but we need to let our docs know about pain we are feeling.
 
Stress tightens every muscle in my body and I have learned to give myself an out if something is going to be too stressful. Somethings aren't worth putting our bodies through. Sounds like that would be a stressful situation for you and your children.
 
luv and hugs
Marlee
