Extremely bad pain and nothings helping!

Jun 21, 2016 3:48 AM

It's day 3 of head to toe pain and no sleep. Nothings helping! I've been awake for 2 straight nights . I've taken my prescribed medicines for pain and muscle relaxing I've even taken tons of over the counter meds and used heating pads and tens unit none of which had been a help. Lord help me, give me some relief please because I'm loosing it.

Personally i wouldnt take (as many drugs you can).. you wont know what helps.. have you tried hot and cold water therapy? Eg hot shower then cold. Do it 3 or 4 times. Not nice but may help.. canabis? Good luck G

I haven't tried hot shower because the hearing pad made the pain worse but I did take a cold shower a tens unit and is too painful for a massage.. I am normally in pain everyday but for some reason the past few days have been horrible!

Hot then cold and repeat thats the key.. will calm nerves for an hour or so. Sorry your suffering so much. Hope you can find some respite. G

Try a different location for the tens unit pads. I've had my in the wrong place a couple of times and ended up with worse pain. Be careful taking too much mixed meds. You don't want an adverse reaction or rebound pain. Have you tried Epson salt soaks, or sprayed the mixture on? Hugs & prayers you start getting relief soon! 🙂💕🙏🌼

Thank everyone for the advice. I'm a little better I'm on some kind of pain patch prescribed by my doctor . It has relieved some of the pain.
