Sleepless nights

Can anyone give me some help with sleepless nights, what they have tried? I have Sjogrens and when I lay down at night to sleep I have this terrible throbbing pain in the shoulder area. just started a couple of weeks ago with the joint pain. going to my doc this week. Thanks.

Hi GiGiā€¦. I have had that kind of pain when the joints are flared up. I know exactly what you're talking about. its very hard to get comfortable. If I've taken Aleve during the day it isn't as bad. Sometimes heat or a light massage helps also. Not much works for me if it comes on when trying to sleep, though. I hope the doc can pinpoint where yours is coming from. Keep us posted on what he says.
