Just letting everyone know how I went at the Doctors today. Great is the only way to discribe it. He is going to try different things to see if he can find something to get me to sleep. Pain killers as I need them he is going to refill them every week.
A question has anyone had any sucess with a heat lamp or ray lamp? He has suggested I try that.

That's wonderful news Kathy! What a difference it makes when we have a doctor that cares and truly want's to help us. I am so happy for you. As far as a heat lamp, I have never tried it but it sounds like a good idea to me. I wonder if they are pricey and where you would even get one? Keep us posted on this please? Take care.

Kathy, I"m glad you've found a great doctor.

If he is suggesting a heat lamp, I would be looking into getting an Infrared Sauna. The heat (generally from a ceramic heater) really penetrates into the muscles and bones and there are a lot of other good health benefits to using one. They can be quite expensive to buy, but most come with payment plans or possible rental terms, so worth looking into.

Good luck and I hope you feel better every day!
