Since starting the SEP, the pain has changed and moved around a lot. Now I notice it has a timing aspect. I notice the pain coming on in the evening as I prepare to go to bed, and it seems to be accompanied by a subtle kind of jitteriness. I started thinking this was due to mental fatigue at the end of the day, i.e., my ability to consciously classify pain as psychosomatic declined as I got tired, and my unconscious was taking over and goosing my autonomic nervous system. However, I wonder if this is a conditioned response. The pain is most intense upon waking up. The weird thing is that there's this little "delay" in the onset of pain when I first wake up, almost like my brain needs time to gin up some pain when it realizes I'm awake. That also seems to be tied to a kind of semiconscious mental state, as I'll start feeling better once I get up and shake out the cobwebs. A few hours later, I'll start feeling much better. Ever since starting the SEP, my pain level during the bulk of my workday is much improved over what it was a couple of months ago, which makes me think the SEP is helping, at least when I'm fully conscious. Has anyone dealt with such a "night pain" issue?
