I fell down the stairs around the time of the last 'heatwave' we had. I was so disorientated and in pain, i think i just stepped and never even thought about it. Hit the bottom of the stairs and had really hurt my shoulder :( Bruising, pain and sensitivity lasted forever!!

My GP prescribed me 10 days of sleeping tablets as he thought the above was due to complete exhaustion and needing to have my pregabalin increased. I havent been sleeping for a while, was waking up middle of the night with agonising leg pains (imagine growing pain type) and feeling like i was walking on nails even though i was flat out in bed!! 10 days came and went, pregabalin has been increased to 350mg and i am also topping that up with tramadol and paracetamol. I am in so much pain, have daily headaches again and i dont know what is wrong :( Is this a flare? I feel exhausted but cant sleep and when i do, the pain wakes me up.

Back to see the GP again tomorrow. Sorry for moaning. I normally lurk and read on here mostly but occassionally need a vent! xx

Hi posie :wave: :wave:

I'm sorry to hear you are feeling so bad, and I'm sorry to hear you fell, that must have been so scary! I have taken to shuffling downstairs on my bum as I am so scared of falling the way I am lately. I hope you start to get some relief soon.

I hope you have some luck at the Dr's today, :fingerscrossed: he/she will be able to help, there is nothing worse than when you are flaring and cannot sleep.

You don't need to appologise about moaning, nobody will think that, I think that this is the best place to get everything off our chest where there are people who understand.

Take care and :hugs:
