Hope they can give you a little more relief than codeine - especially when it's affecting your sleep. x

Thank you lunar i am sort of in a weird place. The medication that makes the pain bearble has a bunch of side effects i'll name a few: tiredness,drowzee,the shits,constapation,nightmares,dry mouth so in many ways i am not getting a good trade for the pain meds that last 30mins it still takes 7 hours to fall asleep i will just rough it out. I can still use the cream for feet and numbing cream and paracetomal before i was having ibraprofen 3 times a day, codeine at night co codomal al whenever at these deep sleeping pills. Sort of want to feel the pain i feel like i deserve it

Hang in there, Punch.

I didn't know my arse from my elbow yesterday after a fourth night of under two hour's sleep. Rotten headache and tearful. Got five hours last night and normal service resumed ;)

Ask if they can give you something a bit stronger tonight, just so you can get some sleep. Tomorrow will be a better day after a bit of shut-eye.

You're doing great. Don't feel down - you're making progress and pushing yourself. Looking good, Punch xx
