I get stabbing pains in my back and upper arms/shoulders. This also results in shooting pains and pins/needles or a dead arm. My arm also feels like it never rests or relaxes - it's very annoying but my amitriptyline seems to help so it doesn't wake me up. Haven't found a daytime cute though!

I have these pains stabbing then mostly aching a friend of mine bought me a lavander wheat bag that you heat in microwave I have found this a great help esp during the day as it stays hot for a while and at night a hot water bottle also helps nothing abe tried has taken it away completely apart from being really dosed up on pain relief and various other drugs but with a 3year old this just wasn't practical nor very nice feeling so foggy all the time at the moment I am on cymbalta at a very low dose and 15/500 cocodamols which I am finding a better combination with brufen and Tramadol at home in case of major flare up so suck of taking pills but would reccomend a wheat bag to everyone and a good set of vitamins

If your diet is good then vitamins are a waste of money and you could be over dosing on Vit A which can damage your liver, but heat may help.

When it gets bad the only thing that helps for me is a very hot bath.

As for pills i am allergic to most of them. I am the 1:1000 person that gets the weird side effect.

Sleeping pills could leave you groggy for half the day.

I went to the gp maybe two yrs ago about insomnia. It was driving me nuts. She refused to give them to me as she said they could become addictive :roll: It was awful. My rheumatologist put me on ami in Feb and I've been sleeping great. It's been suggested to me by my nurse to also not have caffeine, have a bed time routine, hot chocolate before bed, soft music etc etc. I'm sure you've heard it all before :-D

I find meditation or quiet music helpful when the muscles just keep jumping or spiking. Don't drink tea and coffee or alcohol so i am not sure about that. Have you tried a over the counter remedy such as Nytol, but your GP is right you can become reliant on them. I take my anti depressant at night and it helps me get to sleep even if i don't have a dreamless night.

Mediation is a good one overall. For pain and relaxation :-D
