Flare up !

Postby Paisleyjane » Sun Jan 04, 2015 8:03 pm

Hi all, I went and had Lidocaine infusion, in December. Pain started in the arm the infusion was in within couple hours, pain in all my joints.
It has been horrendous since, pain all over.
Have been eating analgesics!
Went to GP this week and he said take extra gabapentin. I can barely lift my arm they feel so heavy , writing this is painful.
Just don't know what to do. It really is bad.
Not had app yet to go back, need to discuss whether I have anymore.
Grumble over, any advice on coping, I have lost the plot today? Xx

Have you tried some heat, water bottles etc. Maybe a warm bath, other than that all I can think of is be kind to yourself and pace more than usual, with shorter time spent on any tasks you are trying to do. Hope things start to settle down soon
