Hi All.... :fairy:
I have had many different pain killers and therapies over the years and was wondering what works for others...???????
Medications that work best for me at the moment to reduce headaches and muscle spasms are Mersyndol Forte and for the spasms, Valium. I'm not happy about the amount of meds i use on a daily basis and tend to put up with pain for as long as i can before i take something..... But compared to a few months ago, i'm taking less meds!!! For a while after my re injury at work, i was in tears daily from the pain....I am usually a toughy with pain, but i was pushed beyond my boundaries... :steam: My Doc had me on Norspan (Morphine) patches that are slow release...first i was on 5 micrograms then upped to 10..... It definitely helped with the neck pain, but not so much with the headaches...It eventually (after about 6 weeks) caused me to have a severe migraine for 2 weeks before we figured out it was the patch causing the migraine...hard to tell when i do get migraines often!!!!! :yuk:
I have also had a lot of relief from having regular Myotherapy (Deep tissue massage) I have been seeing my Myotherapist on and off for about 4 years now and she knows what works for me and what doesn't....she always gives me a head massage in my session which is a great release of pain up the back of my head!!!!!! Unfortunately because my injury is Workcover, they decided to STOP my Myotherapy...I have 2 more sessions to go..... :wah: I can't afford to pay for it myself due to being on such a reduced wage now, BUT...I am fighting their decision to stop it as it helps!!!
I also use a wheat bag/ heat pack on my neck when it is too sore or spasming.
Can anyone else tell me their best therapies or Meds that help????
Thanks for reading......Jas..xx.. :wings:
