I was just wondering why at night ( I am 5 weeks post op) does the pain in the back of my head around the incision feel so much worse?
Is CSF flow affected by movement that much?
I am feeling pretty good as the days go on Chiari wise anyway and stayed awake all day today.
I usually take a nap.
But, I dread the night.
I toss and turn and pain is so much worse when I wake up in the middle of the night and in the morning.
Is that just the way it is and no one knows why?
Or, is there a reason for that?
I know colds are always worse at night etc...maybe all pain is worse at night I don't know.
I hate nights cuz of that.
And I am not getting good sleep.
I finally bit the bullet and took some benadryl yesterday and though I slept some I still woke up from pain in the night.
