I'm sorry you don't have any pain meds and your pain got bad enough to where you had this experience , I have had this happen maybe once or twice and Its very scary. I hope you get your patches soon.

Andyhall1973, In sorry to hear you don't have meds to help with your pain. I've never experienced an out of body moment, so I can't imagine what that must feel like. Is there anything you do that gives short term relief? Do you do any relaxation or Epsom salt soaks? Have you tried any yoga or gentle stretches? These methods don't work for everyone or every pain issues, but being tensed up will tighten muscles around nerves and cause more pain. I'm allergic to 90% of pain relievers so I use Tylenol Arthritis, Aleve, voltaren pain gel, ice, hear, relaxation, & stretches. I haven't tried yoga yet but I bought a cd to do them from a chair position. I hope you can find ways to help you cope until you get some meds. Maybe others will have more suggestions. Hugs & prayers your appt will come soon! 🙂🙏💕🌼
