I'm sorry your pain is getting so bad. I do hope your doc has some suggestions that really work. I too am very stiff and sore in the mornings to the point it's hard to walk but after a couple of minutes it eases up somewhat. You might consider scheduling your medication so your morning dose is about
an hour before you get up. Then set an alarm an hour earlier, take your pain meds and then go back to sleep or read until it's time to get out of bed. That way your meds will have a chance to be fully working when you get up.
Oh, and something you might want to mention to your spouse. Take a look at the people on here with fibro. Most are women of course but most often there is a spouse who comes home from work and then helps the wife with some of the household chores that are too painful to do. There's no reason why it can't work the other way...she should be happy to help you after supper. That's what that thing on your left hand, third finger is all about
. It's called being a team, being one...it's called love.
Prayers for some relief!
If you're going through hell, keep going.
