Sorry you are hurting so bad. :hugbetter:

Please dont feel bad about taking pain meds. They are designed for people like us! I find combining different sorts of pain meds has really helped me. I take a strong NSAID constantly because without it I completely sieze up and cry (not a pretty sight) and codeine based drugs when I need an extra top up. I do it that way because the NSAID dont seem to cause me any nasty side effects while the codeine based one make me feel sick and a bit dosey.
I have other friends who do things the other way around becuase their stomach cant cope with NSAIDs.

Can you talk with your Dr about the pain and see what they advise.

Whatever happens I hope you are feeling brighter soon.
