Hi Tracey. I'm a newbie too, so maybe we can learn together?
Look forward to chatting with you,
Chris.

Hi Tracey, How are you today ? Im not so sore today just my knees aching. You said that you,re not sleeping at night ,have you asked the doctor for something to help you sleep as I find that they work well for me. My doctor has been really great with me and the arthritis doctor that I go to is brilliant as she really understands the pain im in at times as some days the pain is so bad I cant get down the stairs and it does get me so down as ive went from being a fit energetic person to this and I cant get my head round it as its so frustrating as im only 48 and feel like a 90yr old anyway enough moaning from me mention to your doctor that you,re not sleeping and feeling down and im sure she,ll give you something as if you can sleep at night you,ll manage the pain better during the day as you wont feel so tired and drained take care x ( you live about 7 miles from me )

Hi,Tracie, oh you poor soul are you ok? bet that was sore maybe best to get yourself checked out as you,ve hurt your neck. Im not to bad knees still sore and has been for over a week now, went a walk to asda yesterday with my grandson and I was knackered by the time I got back. Im taking 3 amitriptyline a night and they are working as before ,I was up all night as I couldnt sleep for the pain also I have tramadol and dihydrocodeine and naproxen and touch wood so far they are working you maybe just need to get different sleeping pill . This illness really gets me down and I try and just carry on but somedays it beats me.Im needing a week in the sun I asked my doctor could I get one on the nhs but he just laughed thank god we dont pay for prescriptions or I would be pennyless hope your feeling better soon x

Hi Tracey, How are you ? sorry for not writing lately grandson broke the screen of laptop so had to get it repaired. Ive been in alot of pain for 3 weeks now and it just wont let up and I dont feel the painkillerss are helping any longer im feeling very down at the moment with it .My doc thinks theres a fibro support group at crosshouse hospital so im going to see if I can find any info when it is and i,ll let you know if you fancy joining it. Hows the sleeping pills working ? hope they are helping you take care x
