Avatar f tn Arms below elbow are going to sleep- all when lying down at night., Also, headaches, again mostly when lying down are a little more painful but easy to ignore, at this time.
768044 tn?1294223436 My head will often feel hot when I am having a migraine but not like that... and it has never felt worse when lying down... often it feels better lying down, unless the pain is so bad that I can lie down, but lying down doesn't make it worse then, it just doesn't make it any better... so lying down making the pain worse was just the weirdest thing ever.
Avatar n tn I have pain when I am lying down. The pain starts at the lower back and comes up all the way up. After getting up, the pain vanishes. Please advice what this may be. The pain is becoming unbearable and am not getting sleep. The only thing I can remember is, this pain started after I had my child. In our tradition, they tie the belly so that it contracts fast. On one occasion, it was tied too tight and that's when I am having issues. DO I need to see the doc ?
Avatar f tn back pain when lying down.
Avatar f tn Though there can be various possibilities in your case, but generally pain/numbness in the arm, shoulder and back portion of the head originates from the neck problems due to irritation in the cervical (neck) spine since the nerves that supply these areas start in the upper cervical spine.
Avatar n tn I have been having headaches starting at the base of my skull when lying down. After lying for a while they tend to radiate throughout my head. I do not always have them but more often than not. They seem to be relieved when i get up. I have had ct and mri scans and both show normal tissues. I have seen a neurologist and he is not sure what the problem is. My headaches seems to be triggered by lying on my back and the headache is mostly in the back of my head.
771990 tn?1341779376 Today was more about the Fibromyalgia pain in my upper back and spasms down my arm. This is the most aggravating pain. Its almost as if it burns. On top of all of that all day is a cold I am trying to come down with and I always worry because of the COPD I have and the asthma. Been taking that strong prescription cough medicine that helps with rest but with everything elese I am taking for pain I hope the mix is ok.
Avatar f tn I was awaken 3 night ago hurting in the middle of my chest ( almost like someone was ripping it apart), when I stood up it went away, but as soon as I layed back down it started again. Now i still hurt when I exhale but it not only hurts at the middle of my chest it feels like someone is stapping me in the ribs. Any ideas on what this could be?
Avatar n tn I have serious pain when sitting or lying down - been to every doctor I can think of. When I sit down - have to go urinate. Had a injection of lidocane - upset my stomach terribly. I have pelvic lestions and a small nondisplaced fracture/lytic process of distal left sacrum. My doctor has given me precriptions pain medications (latest methadone and some inflammatory medication) inflammatory made me sick. Haven't filled methadone yet as no other medication works.
Avatar n tn I am a 52 year old male and I have been experiencing abdominal pain that usually intensifies at night when sleeping. The pain will wake me up. When I stand erect for a few minutes the pain subsides. I felt tightness and slight pain in the back at first during the day when standing or sitting. then at night it moves to the abdomin. Any thoughts?
Avatar m tn The pain is like sharp stabbing pain that only lasts 1 sec, and it will make you jolt/shock for 1 sec. This happens randomly but mostly when lying down although it has happened very rarely when I am sitting/standing. Maybe some nerves are not aligned in my head that's getting hit when I lie down or maybe there's some tumor, I am not sure. Has anyone experienced this before and have any tips?
Avatar n tn If it is congestion that improves when you sit up, returns when you lay down, and is better when you sleep on several pillows, this is worth talking to your doctor about because it might suggest that your heart is not pumping as well as it should. I hope this helps. Thanks for posting.
Avatar f tn One thing that boggles his mind is that my leg pain is not present on a good day until I am lying down for more than 30 minutes then horrible aching begins. My sed rate is also high but RA and Lupus test came back negative. Doew this sound like arthritus or fibromyalgia?

Avatar f tn So I've been ill on and off for some time with nausea, headaches, joint pain etc I've also had on and off hints of chest pain and tightness but now whenever I'm lying down (occasionally when standing) I can hardly breathe and my chest is very sore. I haven't been getting sleep because it bothers me too much to get to sleep. No matter whether I'm on my side or on my back, I am left breathless and in pain. I was wondering what could be a cause of this?
Avatar n tn The other possibility is cluster headaches. The pain is generally one sided, accompanied by vertigo and worse on lying down. Sitting up and pacing improves the pain. Please consult a neurologist to begin with. Yoga helps relieve the pain to some extent. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
1336585 tn?1275709112 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a year and a half ago but have had chronic pain for about 6 years. The pain is constant and only with medication can i even function on a daily basis. Some days, the meds only help a little and the achiness is so intense all i want to do is lay down and sleep. With 4 young kids, that's not always an option. The worst part about it is that no one understands the pain i'm in except for those that have this conditon.
Avatar m tn More when on left side.
769745 tn?1345746412 In particular, fibromyalgia sufferers are apt to feel neck pain, shoulder pain, lower back pack and pain in the waist, ribs, buttocks, and knees. A common example of one such symptom is pungent or strong-smelling urine. The patient may feel embarrassed to even bring up the topic with her physician. Genitourinary symptoms involve the private parts and it is never easy to discuss these details, even with medical professionals.

Avatar m tn Hi, I am having headache only when lying down. It repositions if I turn to the sides, sleeping face down helps relief the pain. It goes away when I sit up or stand up. It's worse if I sleep on a firm pillow. The pain varies every night. Please advise. Thank you.

923862 tn?1244478621 Consciously relaxing my neck helps a lot, especially when lying in a relaxed position. The Alexander Technique of lying down on a flat pad with a small pad under the head seems best.

The pain from Fibromyalgia is produced in the soft tissues of the body, including the muscles and tendons. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/fibromyalgia/AR00056 Question: Why Don't NSAIDs Work for Fibromyalgia Pain? Why don't pain relievers like Motrin, Advil and Aleve work against the pain of fibromyalgia? Answer: It's a common misconception that fibromyalgia is an inflammatory or rheumatological condition, but it is not.
