(((((((( Dawn )))))))
Wow! So much going on. I really feel for you Dawn. Its so hard for all of you young moms. *sigh* I remember dreaming about
the day I could sleep-in when needed.
YES! Call your doctor tomorrow and let him know how bad you feel. You sound like Ginny, who has major lupus, but is dealing with a fibro flare right now.
One non-medical thing I can suggest is sleeping in a cool room with electric blanket or heated bed topper. For some reason, this helps both fibro and lupus pain. It might serve to help keep the muscles more relaxed while we sleep. I know you don't have extra time, but a hot soak in the tub might help too.
With so many meds, have you ever talked to a pharmacist to consider the best way to split them up over the day? It might be really helpful if you haven't already done that.
Hopefully some of the others will have some ideas for you. I'm sorry I don't have any great suggestions ...but make sure to try the warm blanket.
