I used to do CNA work with Alzhimers patients and that is when my real back pain started. Then the last year I wake up about 2 in the morning not literally able to move, becasue the pain is so severe, it was centered on the right lower side. If if I do move then I start to cry, and I can't breathe. It doesn't matter what bed/couch/chair I sleep on, it all hurts the same. But recently the pain feels more like nerve pain then muscle pain(well its both). I can feel it start in my spinal cord and spread out like thin fingers of pain! I can't handle it anymore, I am at my breaking point!! I've taken Ibprophen but it only (slightly) helps if I take like a handfull(which can't be healthy). I can't take a muscle relaxent, it makes antzzy and I can't have narcotics because my husband is a recovering pill addict, so i can't have it in the house. BUT I NEED SOMETHING!!!! I can't sleep, i don't even look forward to going to bed anymore,and I am exhausted and on the brink of tears because it hurts so much! So does anybody have any over the counter something that helps?????????????

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
