Donna: That is the usual course of medicine I get. The pain killers and nerve blockers help sometimes. Toradol takes weeks to work. Usually I just have to wait it out. Used to get it for months at a time, now just a week or two. Seems strange when it happens like I turned into a zombie with wooden legs and I have to pick them up just to climb stairs. I guess we all have this problem. Never tried the Tylenol Arthritis yet. Didn't think of it. Hope you find something that works for you - Kristin
