I've been keeping some pretty late hours recently. Some of it is due to worrying about my kids and grand kids.....don't know why I do it though. I guess because once a mom always a mom as the saying goes.
Some of it is because no matter what position I was attempting to get in, I just wasn't comfortable. At least not comfortable enough to be able to fall asleep. And I felt....I don't know, just an all over restlessness. Hubby asked me if it was because of muscle spasms in my upper back. I told him 'no', but the more I thought about it and the more we talked about my restlessness he reminded me that this is exactly the way I acted before it was really bad requiring a trip to the E.R. just to get some relief. He started the pressure point pushing on my back and found some pretty painful spots and that brought the pain threshold down a bit, but not enough to be able to sleep. Then we remembered the left over pain medication from my last visit and dug them out of the bottom of the case and they hadn't reached their expiration date so I took a couple. Within an hour I was much more comfortable and was able to sit still.
I wonder if the reason I don't recognize it for what it is is because the pain never totally goes away and I just get used to it and am able to tolerate it until it gets to the point where I have to acknowledge it. what ever the reason, I just wish the spasms would end for good!
