I am sorry for your pain and certainly understand. I get the bad pain mostly in my feet. Sometimes I can barely walk at night. Hot baths help me, but again it's hard to get in and out of the tub sometimes. I have found that I have a heating pad in the bedroom that I sleep on, also one in my chair that I sit on during the day. I even found a full body pad that has heat and pulsator to help with the tension and that helps with the pain. I am on an anti-inflammatory medication which has helped. I do have narcs but hate them so only use them when really needed. Asprin doesn't help me much but my doctor recommended motrin. Which I use and it helps. I was told to take double the dose that the bottle says and that has helped. I can't do stairs anymore and am fortunate to not have but two to get into my house. I refuse to live in a house now with stairs. Sometimes rest is the best thing for the pain but not always easy for anyone who is busy and can't. I hope things get better. There are herbal teas and remidies that help but you would have to ask your doctor if you can take them with any of your other medicaitons.
I send a big hug your way and hope that the pain gets better for you. :cry: :cry: :cry:
