One common theme I find with people who suffer with chronic pain is sleep disturbance.
At the site How to Cope With Pain, published by a board-certified psychiatrist with extensive experience helping patients with chronic pain, there’s a whole page of links to helpful posts to assist you in getting that much needed and all-too-elusive good night’s sleep.
I have my own little rituals for getting to sleep, of course, as we all do after any length of time spent living with these conditions. Mine include a nightly ritual of winding down starting about 1/2 hour before bedtime. Then I take 2 acetaminophen a meletonin, and crawl under the covers. I lay on my back and cross my fingers that I stay asleep.
What do you do to help yourself sleep at night?
Have you tried medication?
