Thanks for your responses guys-
I go to sleep by 10.30pm usually. I take my 4mgs of Xanax prior to bedtime. When i wake in the night from pain, i generally get online, come here or to Facebook- I also read. I am an avid reader (not just because im an english teacher- i adore reading). I put a movie on and wait for the painkillers to kick in, but today, ive taken the maximum dosage and ive had zero relief. im in the grips of a really strong flare- from head to toe i hurt, like my joints have been locked out of place. And my head is pounding- and my jaw is all tight and awful.
Ive done the wheat bags and the heat feels good. My mum is a nurse who offered me a massage as my back is really painful, but im so sore i cant bare to be touched.
Thankyou all so much for letting me vent and sook, its great to be around people who GET IT. I just want to cry, but crying hurts! Blessings,
P.S Ive had major sinus surgery just on 2 years ago. Every ear, nose and throat complication you can get, ive had. had a cat scan and MRI last week and basically my sinuses are rotting away and the surgery- the highly painful and costly surgery- was a dismal failure. Combine the sinus facial pain with fibro facial pain and BAM! exploding head!
