Q & A

Does anyone else wake up feeling as bad or worse than they do when they went to bed? Is this just how it is to get older? My back hurts, my ankle (from surgery back in feb) still hurts, and pretty much everthing else too.

    • Most mornings I feel like I have been drug behind a truck, or just plain drugged.  I feel like I can sleep for a few more hours but if I do I feel worst.  Swollen, achy, and down right crappy.  

      I hate to say this but you might need a new bed.  Something like a sleep number or an ajustable bed.  My parents bought one because my mother’s hips where hurting so much after a nights sleep and she loves it.  she can put her feet up a bit which helps with the swelling.

    • These last two nights have been pretty bad for me.  I woke up to go to the bathroom and then I could not get back to sleep for a while.  My hubby’s snoring had something to do with it I’m sure.  But, I feel exhausted and worse, I start my new job tomorrow which is 60 miles away and I have to get up super early.  Yuck!!

    • I like the idea of a new bed. I know sometimes my back hurts when I get up because our bed is too hard for me. My hip will hurt too if I sleep on one side throughout the night. It’s also possible that you‘re not really getting restful sleep - one of the hazards of perimenopause if you‘re starting to go through that. I sleep in blocks of time but rarely through the night.

      One thing that has helped me is to add strengh training and stretching to my overall exercise routine. I feel much better, stronger, more flexible and I get out of bed with less stiffness. Important to stay hydrated as well.

    • I rarely wake up feeling rested and so often my feet or my back hurt already when I get up.

    • I wake up every morning feeling rough!! Between my neck issues...and my 80lb dog Jack who sleeps in our bed and thinks he is human...well...I sleep holding on to the nightstand to keep from being kicked out of the bed by JACK!

      So when I wake up and get up...I feel like I’ve been beat.

    • Not in almost 7 yrs! But I can totally relate with how you each feel. Back when I did (and before nutritional cleansing and replenishing), I used to think I was a light sleeper. The back pain and grogginess, heavy bowling ball feeling, didn’t go away even after new pillows and a new bed. Anyway, come to find out it was my body and all the stress on it. And I’m sure all the meds I took for all the different health issues I had didn’t help either. I’m just happy I don’t feel like that anymore or have to take anything. I sleep soundly, deep and wake up rested and ready for another amazing day just about every day. And so much slimmer than before when I couldn’t shed those lbs and inches...no matter how hard I tried. This is one gal who can’t wait to start her day.   estatic

    • Have definitely been there..and it is usually worse for me during the winter months as the fibromyalgia and arthritis can be horrible.  The good thing is I invested in a sleep number bed, a twin for me and a twin for hub...mine is the adjustable up and down with the massage in it and Lord knows it is my life saver...honestly, a bed can make the difference.

      and regular exercise and a healthy diet are very important for proper sleep.

      We are all in this together!heart
