I wake up far more often because I have to change position and, more often than not, turning over hurts .

Get sleeping pills asap. We all need our sleep more than other people so ask for it. I take pinpoint for anxiety and it helps tremendously with sleep. I take 3 but started at 1. Good luck and God bless!

Thanks for the answers. This is the first site that I have belonged to were people actually responded to a question and that is really nice when there are no support groups for us. Sometimes you feel alone with this illness.

Not me. I can fall asleep on the sofa easily enough, but sleep next to my husband who snores like chain saw connected to a freight train. And no way! So I haunt the downstairs all night. Or I make a cup of hot milk with nutmeg & a touch of honey! Tha puts me off to sleep pretty quick

Same here! I started adding some tramadol with my sleeping pills and also Dr and I trying a shot every week instead of every other (Humira 40mg). I'm stiff for over 30 min upon waking and pain wakes me up. Just started weekly shots so I will keep all of you posted. Hugs
