Pain is a vicious cycle. One that can really truly disrupt everything you need to get done in a day. Take for example right now, it is 3:45 am and I am awake. I have tried to sleep but I’ve been awoken by stabbing pain in my hip and back shooting all the way down my leg. Now mind you, I had an SI joint injection twice now. They did not work, if anything, they made the pain worse when it flares like this.
I’ve done ibuprofen and some melatonin to knock me out. Nothing. I’ve used a muscle rub. Nothing. And the unfortunate thing when a person with migraines gets no sleep, tomorrow (well today now) will be an amazing time.
I would wish pain like this on no one, not even a worst enemy. And remember, never judge circumstances when you truly do not know what a person is dealing with.
