I'm in absolute agony. Every single muscle and joint in my body is hurting, it's like an achey pain all the time and sharp pain whenever I move, even twitch. I'm covered in spots which I've always been told are Erythema Nodosum, but today they had another thought thinking they might be Erythema Multiforme. I've been on a cocktail of painkillers for days just so I can move about, but they aren't totally helping. I'm taking 2x Paracetamol, 2 or 3 x 30mg Nefopam and 2 x 50mg Tramadol. I've also been given Naproxen to add to it today but that hasn't done much either. I still cry everytime I get up and I'm still waddling around like a penguin.
This morning was worse, I couldn't even lift my head enough to take painkillers and my hubby had to help. I waited 2 hours till it calmed down enough so I could get out of bed. I'm going to take Naproxen seperatly from the others but just wondered if anyone has any idea about whether the different meds should all be split into different times, or if blasting it all at once is the best way? The dose of meds I'm taking is enough to whack a migrane out cold for at least 6 hours, yet it's hardley touching this. At clinic today they had to get me a wheelchair to push me between clinics I was struggling so much to put one foot infront of the other.
This problem has happened a lot of times in my life, but it's only been this bad a small handful of the time. I've been free of it for about a year then it came on a month ago and lasted 6 days then went. Coming on again this soon is daft and I'm on day 3 and it's a lot worse than before. I'm so down about it, I hate not being able to move and it's really getting to me. Feel like I'm falling apart. :(
Thanks for reading and hope everyone is well,
