I think last night was one of the worst nights in a very long time, if not the worst. I woke up multiple times, I think scaring my boyfriend half to death because I was yelling from the pain. I can't remember all of it because once it stopped hurting I fell right back to sleep, but first it was chest pains and I remember that it was hurting really badly. Another time it was my back and another time it was chest pains again - another time it was my legs. This has happened before but never to the extent that I woke up yelling from the pain. Usually I just wake up think "hey its hurting...that sucks" and lay there for a few minutes until it fades then fall back asleep. I haven't fel anything like this before. Has anyone else experienced this?
~~Asthma, Reactive Airway Disease, Allergies (to nature), Fibromyalgia, Kidney Reflux Disease, Chronic Migraines (docs currently working on those), Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Restless Leg Syndrome, and a few others that remain undiagnosed because I don't feel like being on anymore medication than I am already on. ~~

~~ I'm 21 and trying to be optimistic~~

You need to see a doctor. Usually when you tell them that pain is keeping you from sleeping, they do something to help.

If she gives you anti depressants do not worry. They ca help with sleep and reduce pain. Fortunately, there are more medications available to help with night time pain.

Take care and feel better,

I have that sometimes. Thankfully it's not a frequent experience. My boyfriend tells me that I cuss about it and talk in my sleep to complain about it. I'm very grateful that I don't have any actual recollection about the happenings.

But yes, it is something that you should discuss with a doctor. Not only to get that established into your medical history but also just to make sure that there's nothing else going on that may be causing it.
