Dear kimber , how about a heating pad ? I guess you can't get any more pain meds right now for yourself , sorry about that . All I can offer is meditation and either heat or cold whichever you find works for you . Hope you feel better.

I can get pain meds if I go to the pain dr but dont want to do that just yet because have to take of another health issue first. If I cost my insurance too much money they will drop me.

Definitely try heat if you can, and some gentle stretching exercises. If you can, try to do some relaxation breathing while listening to music - there are free mediation tracks you can find and download online that are great, and if you Google "guided imagery MP3's", you might find something helpful there to transport you away from the pain.

Good luck!

hugs,

Kimber,
What's happening with the gall bladder issue/surgery? I think I'm recalling you had a doctor appointment for that recently, but maybe I'm wrong. The ibuprofen may not be the best thing for your stomach, as it can cause GI problems.

Why are you afraid to use your insurance? Is there something in the policy that puts limits on the amount of care you can get? I know it gets very confusing, but if it's a halfway decent policy you should be able to see more than one doctor at a time.

Hope you can begin to find some answers and get the treatment you need!

ThermaCare's are the most wonderful things!!! I wear one every day in the afternoon/evening...after icing in the am....They last 8 hours wearing them..and then another 4 from the effects of it...They rock!

I think I read that you had just gotten this new insurance? If that's the case...there shouldn't be any problems with you getting any of the medicine you need or going to Dr. appts...That is the whole reason you are paying the money for it...

I know that each time I would get new insurance from an employer..I would schedule my OB/Gyn...regular Dr...Dermatologist...Dentist, etc...I would make the whole rounds over those next months...no problems whatsoever..

An insurance company usually never just drops someone..they raise rates each year...but unless you lapse in payment...you shouldn't have to worry about anything..

I am so sorry you are having terrible pain.....with no meds.....that is horrible to suffer through. I am sending loads of hugs ((((((((kimber))))))))) your way! I know when I am having a bad CP day - a hug at least helps my emotions a bit. :)

Have you tried any of the OTC creams along with a heating pad? I use them both several times a week - and it seems to help out a little.

Wishing you some pain relief and no more insurance worries ~
