Can’t sleep pre surgery

I thought I’d cut the pain pills down to help with post surgery pain but, what an idiot!! I’ve been in agony for the past 3 days. I did not realise just how much pain in was in where I was fused before, my neck (current collapsed discs) and where I’d fractured my knee.

Now I’m not an idiot I know damn well if I didn’t have fibro, none of my pain would be this bad!! It amplifies all pain, even making non painful things painful, such as touch and even the wind blowing the hairs on your body. Yep this is true, during a flare up.

I am well into flare up territory due to high stress levels. Knowing just how that last fusion not only stopped from being in a wheelchair, but also caused me to develop fibro, which is just one of the most annoying conditions ever.

Anyway, I keep telling myself it’s not cancer, I won’t die, it’s not progressive, focus on the good not the bad.

Up in 5 1/2 hours, do best try to sleep!! Speak later all!

Hi there, I am a busy mum who had found a new lease in life by completing my diploma in Hypnotherapy and NLP and led a successful part-time online hypnotherapy business, preparing personalised online recordings and using tried and tested NLP techniques as homework for my clients. I found out I had advanced degenerative disease in my spine over 10 years ago and then spondyliothesis 4 years ago. 2 of my lumbar discs collapsed and I needed a fusion in March 2014, but left the other collapsed disc in place. It was then that things got really weird. It took me over 2 years to get diagnosed with Fibromyalgia which I developed after the surgery and that is when the fun started........ I now have Osteoarthritis in my neck and have another 2 discs that are collapsing into my spinal column. I am considering having a double fusion to reduce the pain.
