OK, I'm not looking for "medical advice" here. I have drs for that. Those of you that have chronic pain, I'm interested in how you manage it.
My background: I have Lupus and cardiac problems involving a persistent arrhythmia. The heart problem has me in Club Cooumadin, so I can't take NSAID's for the arthritis associated with my Lupus. As a result, I'm taking narcotics in a prophylactic dosage for chronic pain, or I literally can't get around. On them, I can lead a pretty normal life, as long as I don't overdo it and trigger a fibrillation event.
How do you manage your pain? I may get an idea or two to discuss with my Drs.
