What kind of chart did you make Ember to relate how you feel to your family??? You are organized!!!
Okay, I stay away from as many meds as I can. I do have vicoden but haven't taken any of it. Kinda have a med phobia. I do use a TENS unit and it helps me. That shows you how things work for some and not others. I use lots of heat in any form, even dry heat seems to help. I have a great shower massager that I love, it feels so good on my shoulders and back. I use a moist heating pad, I like that better than the bed buddies or rice bags.
It really is all trial and error when it comes to finding what works for you but you, with your docs help, you will find it.
luv and hugs
