I need to sleep!!!!!!
| Andrew 2
I have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and was given a celestone mix with marcaine injection to the right shoulder last Friday to relief pain to the joint.
Since the injection I have been feeling out of sorts and have not slept for the past 6 days. I am unable to get comfortable , I am edgy and constantly perspiring.
Have been given Temtabs sleeping tablets and still I am unable to sleep?
Any recommendations in what I can do to elliviate the problem.
