I think you might need more medicine to control your pain. We have
many of the same problems but I think my medication may be stronger.
I need something different and better ... that's for sure.

I've been in intractible pain for 7 years.

I will support you in this way: Call your doctor and see if you can get in
today to get some different/better pain medication.

Even California is having some cold weather.

I don't remember your life situation, but pain gets worse for many people
in December - especially those who have families (or those who don't!!)

Take care, girl.

Oh Kara,
So sorry to hear you are in so much pain. It is bitter cold in my hometown as well. Maybe you can take a warm shower to help your aching joints. Normally I say to ice as much as possible, but it's just too cold for that! See if you can't take a nice shower & then make yourself some hot cocoa or tea to warm up your insides.

Weather changes are the worst. Just try to hang in there. Things will get better soon enough. Also, Pamela has a pretty good idea. Maybe your doc can up your meds for a few days to get your pain under control. It's worth a shot to ask, I would think.

Take care & feel better,

Kara sorry that you are in so much pain today.We woke up to the first real snow of the year this morning.I took a long hot hot bath I do this every morning and some times twice a day it is the only way I can get moving without a lot of pain in the morning.You could try this and see if it works for you.Dont you just hate the winter withits cold moist weather.I think you should go to see your DR. and talk to him about your meds maybe you could get more relief from your pain.

Hi Kara,

I'm so sorry you are having such a bad day. I'm not having such a good day either. I hope you managed to talk to you doc. mom9mom's suggestion of a hot bath sounds nice. Just try to stay warm. Some hot tea might help too. Hang in there. Hopefully you'll get a good night's sleep & wake up feeling better tomorrow. My thoughts & prayers are with you.

Just sending hugs and as much virtual warmth as this post can muster! It's bone-chilling cold here and snowing. Is making for a long winter. Sometimes I find I need to use ibuprofen for BT pain along with my percocet when the weather is changing. But warmth baths and showers sure help, too.

Hi Kara!

Weather can make pain so much worse. I know my fibromyalgia pain goes nuts when the barometer drops even before a storm hits. And the cold and damp here in Western Washington can chill you to the bone.

Know that I'm thinking warm thought and sending warm thoughts your way. Mix up something warm to drink. Sometimes warming the body from the inside out can really help.
