dbgiggles, first I would like to welcome you to the community. You have found a safe haven to ask questions, vent, laugh, complain, whatever you need and there is NO judgement here. Also, know that you are never alone. I am sorry you are in such a horrible flare. Everyone is different but all of the symptoms you describe are all common, although horrendous. You may want to take a warm soak in the tub or use a TENS Unit. Try using a heating pad and see if that helps. I wish for you that your symptoms subside and your flare ends quickly. Try to rest a bit. You're in my prayers. 🙏🏻🌻
It's a portable electrical device that has sticky pads that you put in the area of the pain. What it does is sends electrical pulses (kind of the feeling of a massage chair) to your nerves and the brain processes that instead of the pain. It doesn't take it all away but may lessen it for you.
Hi, welcome to a great group! The only thing I can add is instead of a soak, I take showers, there is something about the hot water falling on me, a shower chair helps if you need one. I am nauseous most of the time and throw up way to often, I found only one med that helps nausea, heartburn, and all that, zo frank ODT tabs. They go under your tongue and work fast.
