CP woke up this morning at 5:00a.m. in extream pain but then I went to bed that way.....I took my usual pain meds and it didn't work so then I had to put on the tens unit which I haven't used in awhile. This is going to make for a fun day.....yesterday I cried all day, and today I just will deal. I hate the idea that this is the rest of my life but then I can't think like that or it will bring me down. I'm suppose to walk every day but the snow makes it very difficult and they don't always plow the sidewalks here. I know I'm complaining but I just need to vent. I just feel like I'm running out of options and I refuse to have another surgery because the last one didn't work. If anyone has any suggestions I'm open to them....thanks for listening.....eyes

What pain meds are you using and what exactly is it for?
I also use a tens unit for my orthro stuff, but I have noticed that really heat works the best for me.

I am not sure I understand what type of pain you were having? Was it tummy pain or joint pain? Sorry I am a little confused. But vent away my friend, vent away. We do understand.
