    It hurts me to sit all the way up or lay all the way down. So I sleep propped up on pillows with pillows under my knees. Been doing it for months now. It doesn't make my bladder NOT hurt, just keeps it from hurting worse.

    I noticed that pain too. When I get up during the night to go to the bathroom it feels like my bladder is hurting from the gravity. I also can only sleep in certain positions, I can sleep on my side slightly tilted forward and on my back. I used to be a stomach sleeper but that would kill me to do that now.

    I'm so sorry to hear that. You are in my prayers.

    Um yes,

    Hub sometimes actually forces himself to stay awake until wee hours, because he knows he is going to get in to a good sleep and have to wake up when that hits. When he sits up it is excrutiating. So yeah, you're not the only one. However, the hydroxysine at bedtime is helping about 50% of nights. We just keep Take care. Jill, wife of Bob
