Pain in the night Permanent link

Friday 3rd May, 2024

Having regular pain can be depressing and demoralising, but waking up in the middle of the night in pain, as I did last night, can be even moreso.

For some reason my left knee ached severely enough to wake me at 3:25am, and to keep me awake for a while after. I rang my call bell and asked the nurse for some Oramorph, and she gave me 7.5ml. I was still awake at 4.15am with the pain having mostly subsided, but not completely. I managed to drop off sometime after that, but was exhausted for most of the day.

It’s not often that I am woken up in this manner, but when I do, it gets me down plenty.
