PAIN MANAGEMENT WITH EDS

Apr 13, 2018 2:28 AM

To all those struggling with pain management, who have EDS, any tips or tricks you’ve found to be effective at lowering pain for extended periods of time? Especially if you have subluxation of C1-C2?

Heat packs, heat blankets, keep it all heated. Tylenol can be taken with most pain meds for that little extra boost as well. Lidocane patches are also a lifesaver, or icyhot patches with lidocane if you can't get prescription lidocane patches.

Distraction is the only thing I've found that helps me. Oh, and chainmaille has helped my hands a lot.
