Im in excruciating pain its driving me crazy

I'm so sorry to hear that. Is your pain level normally high or have you overdone activities today? I can understand that kind of pain because I have been in chronic pain for 22 years and have had 29 surgeries within that time. Most of the time, my pain levels are at an 8 and even on Morphine, I can't get the pain lower than a 7. I have several formally diagnosed diseases and syndromes that cause chronic pain. Among them are Fibro, degenerative joint disease, degenerative disc disease, CRPS/RSD, cervical spondalytic myelopathy, long thoracic nerve palsy, bilateral valgus deformities of the knees, scoliosis, spondylosis, SI Joint disfunction with fractures, TMJ, hypothyroidism, anxiety, depression (and about another 8 or nor that I can't remember right now). Perhaps you can take a warm bath? If not, heating pads or a TENS Unit to help ease the pain? I hope that you are able to get a Good night's sleep and wake rested to a peaceful and lite pain Sunday. Sending you {{Hugs}} and prayers to help you through. 🌻🙏🏻

I'm so very sorry that none of my suggestions were helpful to you. I hope that they get you in soon for #7 and that after it's done, you will have no more problems with that knee. Hang in there, we're all here for you if you need us, any one of us is merely a keystroke away. Sending gentle {{Hugs}} and prayers your way. 🌻🙏🏻
