Hi, Has anyone had pain in the middle of the night when you are sleeping?? It has been taking me a long time before I get to sleep and then I get woken up with sciatica pain. When I try to go to the bathroom to take a shower to relax me my buttock tightens up that I have to wake my dear husband up to help me get to the bathroom and take a shower. Probably taking a shower is not a Dr. Sarno suggestion but the pain gets so intense. Last night I was up all night. I was so tired to identify the emotions; although I did figure out my husband is going away on a business trip on Wednesday and I probably am upset about this since he has had to help me so much since my walking has not been normal. My daughter who will be here in the evenings is always very busy and may not help me like my husband. I think tonight I am going to journal a little before I go to bed. I will do some deep breathing and just enjoy the night. That can be a catch 22 though since I have been having this difficulty falling asleep for about two weeks. Any suggestions or insights would be greatly appreciated. I am trying not to get discouraged. Thanks everyone, G.R.
