So sorry you are SO stiff and sore.
Do you have an electric blanket? or electric mattress pad? If so. turn it on about
a half hour or more before going to bed and then turn it down if necessary. Going to bed in a toasty warm bed can really calm those stiff joints. If necessary, turn your heat down so you can keep the blanket on low all night.
If you don't use an electric blanket, you could soak in nice warm tub. Add some epsom salts if you have them. about
one cup will do. Some folks get some relief from sore muscles/joints from the epsom salts and/or warm water.
Also try some very gentle stretching to keep the muscles lose.
If you can take tylenol, it is sometimes helpful to add one tylenol tablet to your ibuprofen dose. For some reason it can really manage tough pain surprisingly better sometimes.
I hope some of the others have some ideas for you.
