On bad pain days I have learnt to rest, take two panadol and one tramadol. I find that and I got this from the nurses in hospital, that if I use only one tramadol and take it with two panadol it blends so nicely and eases the pain without making me drowsy. I also use heat packs and I have a chair insert massage seat. Hope this helps. Since going on planquinl I have a lot less pain. Hope you can get some relief. Also I was reading about some pain research, and it was focused on women going through labour. Well it found that women who didn't normally swear we're benefited with pain relief when in labour suffering bad pain. Well they found if these women swore then they produced some endorfins and produced some natural pain relief. It also discovered that if the women studied normally swore in their every day language they did not get any relief when swearing while in a great deal of pain.
So bottom. Line is if you don't normally swear in your daily life when you are in a lot of pain if you swear then eg when in tears you will produce some endorfins that will give you some pain relief. But the more you use this method tieless it works. So use the swearing limited. I know it sounds funny but it does work!
