Disclaimers: yoga, exercise, heat, arnica, antiinflammatories, blah blah. BTDT. Not looking for another fix. I got my cortisone shot a couple days ago & it's done, am getting physical therapy, may need rotator cuff surgery in future & have arthritis & bursitis. I have had a useless arm; tough with a house, garden, & littles.
Well. So the shot has helped somewhat. And I was told there 'may be some insomnia for a night'. OMG.
I have bad insomnia at best, & this is awful. Last night I went to bed at 9:30 & couldn't sleep after 1 1/2 *Ambien* till after 2 AM (I normally take 1/3 of one, if I need it).
HOW LONG WILL THIS LAST? A third night of no sleep (because, of course, my littles are early risers) is going to bring on another 4 day migraine. I thought waking up at 4 am every night from shoulder pain was bad (and it was!), but not sleeping in the first place is not so great either!
Help! Is it just me? How much longer?
