Why is it when I'm all done with the day (which is painful)when I start to wind down and relax my pain intensifies and becomes unbearable?

Me too. I've always thought that it's because I have no other distractions.

I have trouble getting my body to listen to my brain.

My feet have been bothering me too. It feels like I have tiny glass splinters stuck in the bottom of them. My fingertips too. I was referred to a neurologist for an EMG, but I wimped out when I heard about all the needles. My insurance dosen't cover feet(or jaws).

I think the pain floods me when I go to bed because I have pushed too hard during the day. It's usually a good indicator that I need to slow down.

I took a pain management class that taught me that I need to be more mindful of what I do during the day so that my nights are better. Easier said than done at times. Whistling

I think that our pain gets worse once we start to relax because it doesn't matter how much we hurt during the day when we HAVE to get things done, we still have to do it. Then, when we can relax...we THINK about our pain because the 'daily list' is done! Well, MINE never is...but ya know what I mean. W00t

I always tell my self that it's ok just alittle bit long and the day will be over and I can go home and get in bed and take my pain meds. But then when I get in bed my hips and sholder blades hurt just by them touching the bed. The problem now, though is that the hydrocodone is not helping anymore so what now.
