Pain Management

Pain Management

Unfortunately, as much as no one probably wasn't to mention it.... I believe the key is to find a combination of meds that give you enough relief to manage, many of us sufferers are never the same as we once were and managing the pain levels is usually a more realistic goal that attempting to stop the pain. You can check out what medication and symptoms others have on here which can be comforting.... I wish you luck with finding something that works for you

You probably need something stonger. You need to ask the doctor for Tramadol.It is quite safe for a pain pill, quite effective too. Hot baths with 3 cups epsom salt for 20 minutes.Heating pad on areas that are painful......,slow streching,short walks at your pace,drink lots of water, muscle realxers,500mg magnesium daily .Try to relax as much as you can especially sleeping well at night Also, I changed my diet by not eating foods that cause inflammation in the body.That includes gluten, too.. Just google inflammatory foods. I eat much like a Mediterranean diet. Thank God in the good times as well as the bad . Avoid stressful situaions as much as possible.

It also helps a lot to look at the foods you eat. A "pain free"diet makes a huge difference. I can't take medications but I eat and maintain a specific lifestyle that helps me manage pain. :)

I find hot baths, hot tub to be helpful. Heating pad or blanket basically anything with heat helps me. Cold is very bad lol. I started some light yoga when I'm hurting bad. Mostly streaching and it helps a lot. I do it a lot through out the day.
