I'm not an expert on this subject so I'm just wondering: "What's different when you first wake up in the morning?" One thing that stands out in my mind is that your blood pressure would be lower. Then after you have your coffee, get dressed and move around, your blood pressure goes up.

What would happen if you took your time getting up? Maybe your blood pressure would rise gradually. It starts going up a little when you open your eyes. Then if you wiggle your toes and fingers it will go up a little more. Then sitting up in bed will raise your blood pressure even more. Then do some deep breathing. Have some water at your bedside and take a drink. Finally, when you feel fully awake and ready, you get up.

I just wonder if the above proceedure, or something like it, would help you avoid the pain. It seems like when your blood gets moving it "feeds" your muscles and joints in some way?

Re: terrible mornings

When you first wake up, relax, wiggle/squirm, stretch in bed before attempting to get up.

I have fibro and the above really helps.
