Robin, I can really empathize with you about pain & sleepless nights. Nights are just plain miserable for me, too. Sleeping pills don't help me sleep only make me rum- dum! Dr. prescribed me oxycodone 5mg., they make me nauseous & I even vomited two different nights when I took them, so I'm leary of them, the cure is almost as bad as the cause. Wish I could do something to cheer you up. Please hang in there. Take Care, Rita in AZ --- Robin M <> wrote: > Dear All
