I have increased thirst & dry mouth, always assumed it was the antidepressant. If I don't drink enough during the day, I have to make up for it at night. So I wake up to go to the bathroom a few hours later and half the time I can't make myself get up, so I'm not sleeping deeply the rest of the night. Dumb! Haven't found the right balance.
I get that pain between the thumb and forefinger sometimes too Alice, but luckily for me, it comes and goes.
Sherrine, my neck muscle on the left is so tight that if anyone puts ANY pressure on it, I fold. Then it's bad all day and night. Has been for 25 years. For whatever reason...it started when I had babies to hold and nurse, so I always attributed it to that.
