    Try putting pillows under your arms to sleep.

    I feel your pain, starting to get frozen shoulder in my left after the right took two years to resolve. The torture never seems to end.

    I was up for a few nights with aches and pains. Lifting a coffee cup even hurt. My knee and toe ache, especially when the forcast calls for rain. Cbd oil is what has made a huge difference.

      and had to call in to work the next day,

      I'm glad I did because the temperature dropped 30 degrees overnight.

    I have heard good things about Tumeric--- maybe it takes a while to 'kick in'. Have you tried magnesium before you go to bed? This could help.

    Don't feel bad... I'm only 39, in perimenopause, and have a bad shoulder ache that comes and goes, and a horrific case of sciatica. And the backache... ugh. I was up 5 times last night.

    Yes, i have been miserable with my aching knees, the pain is worse at night than even during the day. My acupunturist said that thats when inflammation settles at night, so that is why it hurts more - i wasnt going to do it, but i am going to have an MRI of my right knee - the pain is relentless & i have been suffering for over 6 weeks - ugh! Today woke up with bad anxiety, does this ever end?

      Hi Grace - Thank you for that sweet sentiment - right now, i am not having any "good days" - i am just trying hard to not think the worst, & hoping this is a passing symptom, but my whole body now aches & i really cant walk well freaks me out!
