A LOT OF PAIN!! HYPERMOBILITY & JOINT PAIN

Postby vicky_nunn » Fri Jul 08, 2011 10:24 pm

Hi all

As you can prob see from the subject i am i a lot of pain at mo with my hips and legs mainly due to hypermobility! I am on so many pain killers, 30/500 2 four times daily SR Tramadol 200mg twice daily, i thought i could take normal tramadol on top if needed but my gp said you cant do that. . something because of it being immediate release . . trying ibuprophen 1-2 three times daily but not holding breath.

Just go home from long trip in car and in so much pain, due to the sitting! I am also on 75mg amotriptolin and 200mg hydroxychlorquin which is a rehmatic drug, went on it few wks ago to help fibro.

The hip and leg pains are really getting me down!!!!! :banghead: also getting a lot of pains in hands too!

Any suggestions or what helps for you guys!!!????

Have you tried something like soaking in a warm bubbly bath, or heat pads/wheaty bags on the worst bits?? A good old hottie bottie wrapped in a towel??

Tizanidine for spasm and oxycodone for pain.

Also, just say 'F*CK IT' when it gets really bad and it can help!!!!!!

Thanks everyone, gave me little chuckle tireesix! I spoke to my gp once about oxycodene when i was discussing options for pain relief and she looked shocked and said that wasnt an option yet as its a morphine product! It would be nice to have some when i am desperate which to be honest isnt v often. . . i was just v bad the other day. and it scares me that will happen again, im so glad i have the tens. Getting compressions shorts, hope they help my hip bursitus!
