There's a snow storm coming in and I hurt everywhere! nothing is helping. My ankles my knees my back. I can't stand up straight. But I can tell my floor needs vacumed eyes   I feel like I need a shot of cortisone in my back or somthing. I've already taken 30 mg of oxycodin and I can't even tell it. If your in oklahoma or headed east look out it's coming your way. I don't usually get this much joint pain. not all over all at once. I'm beginning to think the vicodin worked better than the oxy. Man I sound like a junky or somthing lol. In my case at least I'm beginning to think that all narcotics are good for is to make you sleep so you don't realize your hurting. but than again I'm not sleeping tonight. my hips hurt my wrists. the only that don't hurt is my fingers. Is it summer time yet? scool
I'm just ranting since I can't sleep and nothing is on t.v.
Hope you all have a good morning and enjoy your coffee!
love ya
God Bless

No sleep for me either - I tossed and turned all night. My hips, my shoulders, my back...everything aches. Fortunately for me, it's not freezing cold as it is for you - that would make it even worse! I hope the day is better for you and you can rest...

Oh you guys, I'm right there with ya. I had a horrible sleep.  Just woke up.  I had brutal back spasms that lasted for about half an hour.  It was excruciating.  I was dreaming REALLY weird and vivid dreams too.  Those woke me up also.  I feel like I have been hit by a Mac truck.  What's up with everyone's sleep or lack of it last night?  It's weird we all had trouble.  Maybe it is a weather change thing.....  Anyway, have a better day today.  I hope you can all at least get a good nap in this afternoon!!

Carol, I hit the submit button before I meant to. When are you going to Presby? It's down at the Health Science Center on Lincoln Boulevard, South of the Capitol and East of downtown. My stepdaughter works there as a nurse. What's the name of the doc you're seeing? I'm praying that they are able to help you.

(((((Carol)))) I hope you are in your bed right now and catching up on all the sleep you missed last night. Your pain sounds awful and I wish there was a med that would help you be more comfortable. Does a heating pad or electric blanket work? I was hurting really bad last night from our nasty weather here and I got all snuggled in under the electric blanket and it did help some.

I hope the snow blows over soon and that warmer weather is on the way. THis is been an awful winter in the midwest.

Love and hugs

Greetings from Northeast Ohio!

Carol! What the heck are you doing sending us that panhandle hook????? LOL

Our winter storm warnings went into effect this afternoon. 2-4 inches of snow tonight and then then ice.

Sorry everyone had such a bad night. Hope you got some rest today and get even more tonight.

Since the front is moving in - my bad night will probably be tonight!
