Worsening Insomnia | conceptualclarity's Blog
I ask my Christian friends to please pray for my physical condition. which is getting desperate. The front end insomia continues relentless even after I've upped the dosage of drugs and supplements. This time I slept lightly for maybe half an hour at most. Then I woke up and experienced anxiety and claustrophobia. I took some anti-anxiety herbal pills, and the anxiety didn't last, but it caused me to become wide awake after I had seemed, before the anxiety hit, to have a pretty good shot at falling back asleep soon. It's not the the first time lately I've experienced anxiety and claustrophobia, and it's undoubtedly caused by all the sleep difficulty. (Front end insomnia is far worse and far more maddening than sleeping-short insomnia.) I had a nightmarish year in 2006 with anxiety and claustrophobia, and I don't want to repeat that.
I can't get the help I need from physicians with the pain that is probably the primary source of the sleep trouble. My chiropractor seems stuck on the idea that I've progressed to the point where he doesn't need to treat me and I simply need to do the strenuous exercises he's given me. I had progressed, but I've regressed greatly since then. And I'm doing the exercises faithfully, but they are not giving the slightest glimmer of relief from my pain. At the rate things are going, I think it could be many months before the exercises do anything to give me pain relief.
I called my orthopedic doctor's office to ask if they would give me a steroid shot in my neck region. The nurse called back and said they only give those shots in joints. I don't know why they wouldn't administer them to painful muscles.
I looked up pain doctors in the phone book, and the closest pain pracitce was a substantial distanc away. I don't know much about pain doctors. my experience with pain drugs has been that they seemed to work well for me for headaches but not for body aches.
I did get an appointment for Friday with my chiropractor.
