I am afraid to go to sleep at night…not for fear of not waking, but of waking. I awake every one to two and a half hours. Finally after 6 hours of this at 8:30 this morning I rolled over and sat on the side of my bed and experienced this strange pain in my left side. It was powerful and the first time it has happened to me. It seems to be par for this course I am on, though because every time I experience something new it mysteriously appears on this site. Hence the title because the timing of these articles with the symptoms is eerie.
