I feel so badly for you. I know all too well how hard it is to cope due to pain. Have you tried any topical treatments such as the gel that goes on cold then turns hot, or my favorite, a pain relieving cold therapy gel with herbal extracts? It actually works better than I think sometimes. Also, sometimes for me getting into a hot bath, or using a heating pad help. I also use a foot massager tool that really helps. You put it on the floor and step on it and it has all these little hard nubby fingers that stick out, then you roll your foot around on it and it hurts so good! Not everyone is into that kind of thing, but I thought I'd throw it out anyway, it works for me!

I would think it would be important to know what is causing the pain. Is it joint pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis? I have that and I never miss taking daily Celebrex, which is for RA.
I am also on low-dose Prednisone and my rheumatologist says I will probably never get completely off the Pred.
I have some heavy duty pain meds, but seldom have to use them because the pain is usually pretty well controlled without them.
I also have found that, for me, it makes a real difference in the way I feel when I take a supplement of Omega 3 fish oil daily. I've also noticed that drinkng lots of water helps me.

I was just talking to my rheumatologist about this yesterday. I feel like someone shot me in the buttocks and down the leg. The pain gets worse as the day goes along. Nothing seems to help. Just resting. Wish I could help. Susie54
