White Beard, it sounds like you and I spend our nights the same way...in pain, and often awake. Sounds like your sleep study was a bit of a write-off in terms of amount of sleep you managed, but I hope it gave the doctors enough info to go on, to help you more. I also hope this woman and her kids are able to find help in terms of housing, a job and any of the other stuff she'd hoped to get.
Conditions: Fibromyalgia, Myofascial Pain, Chronic Pelvic Pain (with permanent muscle damage), Femoralacetabular Impingement (CAM and Pincer), Reynauds, IBS, Surgical Adhesions, Ophthalmic Migraines, Severe Hot Flashes (both Surgical Menopause and medication related), plus physically unable to vomit due to the Nissen, and I have extremely tiny veins with a lot of scar tissue...a joy when it comes to having to give blood or get an IV started
