Took a Unisom sleeping pill about 11:30 p.m. in hopes of getting a few hours of early sleep. Woke with pain increasing. Used Thumper 10 minutes or so. Unable to communicate much, possibly due to Unisom. Pain seemed to level off at a manageable level. Fell asleep sitting on floor, though probably still in pain. No pacing. Hard head rubbing, 10 minutes Thumper.
