For any person with chronic pain there is an on going need for pain relievers. The first thing I was told was try warm heat, exercising and Motrin when needed. I tried the warm heat, stretching (never quite made it to exercising) and Motrin.
I realized this week that I am taking Motrin everyday sometimes twice a day. The pain is steadily increasing and settling into several joints. My right ankle, upper left chest, jaw, and neck are annoying-painful to I’m-crying-help! painful. I hesitate to bring this up with my dr because I don’t want to be seen as “seeking pain meds”. Afterall I just got through the whole this is lupus sorry I had to go over your head deal.
Do any of you have this issue? Have you had to go above the OTC pain meds? I don’t want anything that will make me dopey or addicted. I just need more joint pain relief at times. Any suggestions would be highly welcome.
Thank you friends for you time. May the Lord turn this bad thing, chronic pain, to His good! I pray that your week is wonderful! I am going to post some pics of my seedlings tomorrow! I hope you enjoy. God bless!
