Aches and Pain

Filed under: Reactive Arthritis — terence @ 10:56 am

Thanks to Carina who sent me the link, an interesting article in Salon about pain.

It’s the pain tired nexus that gets me. Pain makes me tired. Being tired causes me pain.

The pain makes me tired bit makes sense: in particular my shoulder and lower back often wake me sometime around 3 or 4 am. Also, being sore has a fatigue of it’s own. It takes an effort. And so it leaves me tired even when I sleep well.

The other link in the chain is something slightly stranger. If I don’t get enough sleep, I end up sorer. Or, more accurately, if I have a late night, I don’t necessarily hurt more, but if I wake early in the morning I do. I haven’t the faintest idea why this might be but fitting into the cycle as it does, it’s a real pain.
