Hi! and Hugs,
Welcome to our group, and I hope you find as much comfort here as I have. Your pain sounds similar to my pleurisy type chest pain, and my chronic neuropathic pain from my CNS lupus. But any pain that bad should mean a call to your doctor. I have a prn pain patch prescription, Flector, which is a NSAID, that helps me alot. When I have a joint that hurts that much, I just slap on the patch, one every 12 hours, and the inflammation is better overnight. And I have been on Neurontin since I was diagnosed in 2005, which helps that scalded feeling immensely, thank God. You deserve to have your pain managed, so don't hesitate to ask,
God knows, even if I don't....
CNS Lupus 2005, APS, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis
Meds: Plaquenil, Neurontin, Thyroid, Piroxicam, Aspirin, Atenolol and Norvasc, Prednisone 5mg daily and Paxil, Ambien every night.
