Comment : Advice on getting sleep
Posted by Chris Haynes on Mon 6:28pm 1 June 2009
Hi Steve, I just wanted to say good job on keeping up the good spirits and I'm sure with a positive attitude you'll heal quickly. My daughter broke tib fib in soccer game and the biggest problem at first was not being able to sleep deeply, and not being able to stay asleep. Lack of sleep affected her mood and probably delayed healing and as you know is very frustrating. She developed really bad hives as a reaction to all the morphine and pain pills, so doc suggested giving her Benadryl and it knocked her out and made her sleep 10 hours straight! She woke up feeling so much better. So, after that, she dumped all the hard core pain pills and would take a Tylenol 3 plus Benadryl before bedtime and it worked like a charm. Later on, she just took the Benadryl, which I found out is the same thing as Unimsom (if you compare ingredients is same thing). Hope this helps and happy healing to ya!
