Thanks Heather,Ali j and Polly.
Sorry Heather that your partner is also having hard time sleeping.My GP has only given me a short course,14 days,hoping my body will get back into some sleep pattern.Have six kids here at weekends so can be tiring but still only manage couple of hrs sleep.
Sorry Ali to read about what happened to you,some sick people out there.Since my sciatica has been bad I haven't been able to get out on my own,only got borrowed wheelchair which has to be pushed,confidence not good anymore anyway.Don't know how long sciatica going to last so not sure about scooter yet,even scared to use one in supermarkets.
I have asked about amitriptyline,for some reason gp won't prescribe them to me,not sure if cos of other meds.
Polly thanks have tried calms from over counter but they didn't help,also tried relaxing techinics.Think temezapam strongest sleeping pill doctors will give me over here
