Hugs...thanks so much for your concern. I have an appointm with my rheumy next week, but I think I will give her a call in the meantime. I'll let you know how it goes
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
