Losing battle.

I do really feel as if I am fighting a losing battle at the moment. I have dehydrated discs, arthritis in my spine, cervical spondylitis and now my sacroiliac joint has decided to play up again. No painkillers are touching any of it. If I sleep on my back with a pillow under my legs as I have seen recommended for SI joint pain my spine is incredibly painful. If I sleep with a pillow between my legs whilst lying on my side my hips are unbearably painful. Consequently I haven't slept more than 2 or 3 hours for over a week now.

Any tips would be much appreciated thank you.

    I can only suggest you ask to be referred to both a physio and a pain clinic. I've never had much faith in so-called painkillers. Stronger muscles are what I aim for.

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.
