i was diagnosed with ss a little over a year ago. i have many other problems so i see my pcp, rheumy, neurologist, gastro dr.. they think i have an underlying disease. they are trying to figure it out. i am on a ton of meds. now the problem. i take meds for inflammation. but nothing for pain, until about 3 weeks ago. i was given darvocet. told 1 every 8 hrs as needed. i called for a 3rd refill and got a lecture. which really pissed me off. i am in pain. my knees hurt so bad i can hardly stand from a sitting position. i wake all night because of the pain shooting thru my legs. my wrists are awful, the carpel tunnel braces help a bit. my feet whole nother story. headaches. is it hard for others to get pain relief from your primary care dr? i use heating pads, the gel packs that go in the microwave and now i use a shower chair because i have trouble showering. this sucks.
