I have been up since 2am with no relief, I've take tons of Tylenol, applied heat, taken a hot bath, massaged, sweet talked, and pretty much everything short of serenading and buying my joints dinner.. When the pain starts it refuses to subside until my whole day has been shot by sitting on the couch and I'm just wiped out from all the pain and crying.
I know that a lot of other's here deal with the same pains.. my pains are mostly are in my knees but I've also had them in all my other major joints.. just not as bad. I've called my GI to see if there's anything that they might suggest. I know that it's the steroids that are causing these probems.. is there anything that anyone can suggest until I hear back from my GI? I'm miserable.
