As you can tell by the time, I am having exactly the same night time problems. My leg doesn't hurt, it aches and is most uncomfortable. I still have some prescription codeine left but am determined not to use them.I have my laxative meds now safely stored away. I did not use the toilet for a number 2 for the two nights I was in. On the morning I came home watched everyone else take laxative thought I better now join them... Big mistake. First night home I must have got up 9 times during the night. It was not a good experience!
I don't need these meds and have been normal with my toilet habits ever since.
My knee feels really sore tonight and keeping me from sleeping.
Have taken two co codomols ( prescription meds from hospital ran out) and am trying baby ibruprophen as the adult dose won't be tolerated by my stomach. I'm finding it very difficult as I can only take paracetamol based meds X 4 times daily.. which of course doesn't help if I wake up in pain at 3am as will have had last dose around 10pm. I don't know how to combat this one.
My leg aches in bed a lot and it causes me to lose sleep. I am not napping at all during the day it's like I am taking caffeine not codeine it's odd.
