Pain Relief

Ask a Question

I am prescribed pain relief by my gp but would love to not need to take it so regularly. Ive tried a tens machine, accupuncture, physio, pilates, massage, chiropractors, heat rub. Im allergic to nsaids so these arw not an option. Does anyone have any other things i can try?

That doesn't help if the op has to take it daily.

For example I have chronic pain and take very strong painkillers for the rest of my life.

Its a chronic condition. Ive suffered for 16 years. Its only going to get worse as i get older. Its daily pain, its not a short term injury that will eventually go away. My spine is misaligned and i have the start of arthiritis. Occassional sciatica and scar tissue in my shoulder from a car accident. Not much fun at 36 years old šŸ˜”

joannecroston I too have a deteriorating spinal condition, and am in the process of being diagnosed with arthritis (hopefully that rather than something else more serious) - just had an MRI to be sure, awaiting results (tendonitis and other itises abound) it's no fun is it! I do feel for you though at only 36 years old. Pain is a daily issue that I manage as best I can, as I am sure you do too, but I don't look forward to the future.. šŸž

joannecroston my chronic conditions started about 20 years ago. Iā€™m on the strongest painkillers available as nothing else works and still in pain. Hope you find something that works

Ae sounds like you have tried quite a few things, I'd also recommend cbd oil, I've heard great things about it.
