Hi tiffany, I'm on blood thinners and because NSAID's interfere with the coumadine i can only take Percocet for pain, as Tylenol wont touch it. I also have avascular necrosis on both knees so I guess that helps to get the stronger meds to. However I don't like to take them as prescribed because my pain management doctor wants me to take them every 4-6 hours and I'm afraid of getting addicted, which by this point I probably am. anyway I'm rambling, I like to try other ways to try to soothe my pain, taking warm to hot baths in epsom salts and even adding eucalyptus oil to the water sometimes helps. I also have something called voltaren gel, that's prescribed but I really like it for muscle pain. Try using tiger balm also. Heating pads also work sometimes. As far as anxiety try natural teas, always consult your doctors though. Relaxation helps. Soothing warm baths with soft music in the background helps. A little walk in your local park also helps. Hopefully you'll find something to help you through this rough patch.
