I was wondering if anyone else has this issue. Mine isnt caused by having to get up to have a bm though. In the recent weeks my joint pain has been horrible that I wake up randomly in thie night and I am unable to fall back to sleep. Pain meds do not make me drowsy they have the total opposite effect. I remember my mom telling me that when I was 3 I was strapped into my car seat, I had a bad cold (this was all before my CD Dx) and due to asthma etc I was on cough meds with codiene. Well she looked in the rear view and saw that I had unbuckled myself and was hanging out the window. It seems all pain meds wire me rather than help me sleep. I have taken ambien even and I still cant sleep thru the night due to the joint pain.
Any tips? I need more than a few hours sleep this is getting crazy
