How Do You Guys Deal With Having To Do Manual Labour

I have been fighting with the doctors about a diagnosis for years. Finally come up with fibromyalgia they haven't given me any pain meds except naproxen and amitripline and I have to waitress and I'm in a great deal of pain. Is there anything else you take that doesn't have to be prescribed to help you.

Taking Meloxicam For The First Time.

Taking Meloxicam For The First Time.

On Friday my Orthopedic Surgeon prescribed Meloxicam (15 mg - once daily). Was wondering anyone's thoughts on the effectiveness of this medicine. I am now taking Indomethacin (and from time to time Naproxen). Was wondering how it compares with those two. And, what's the best way to take it? In the morning? Noon? At night?

Your thoughts?

Thanks and God bless.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME
What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
If you’re feeling numbness, tingling, or weakness in your hand, consider asking your doctor to check you for carpal tunnel syndrome.

It's caused by pressure on your median nerve, which runs the length of the arm, goes through a passage in the wrist called the carpal tunnel, and ends in the hand. The median controls the movement and feeling of your thumb, and also the movement of all your fingers except your pinky. The carpal tunnel is… read more

What Can I Do To Alleviate Back Pain From Endometriosis?

What Can I Do To Alleviate Back Pain From Endometriosis?

I’ve had extreme back pain for 10 years, every since a couple months after I got my first period... I have larger breasts and have endometriosis, I believe it affects my back more than anything else because when I had my period (before I went on Depo-Provera and got an IUD) I’d hardly be able to walk from all of the pain combined, and regardless of me no longer having it, I’ve had more severe back pain, although I don’t have anything physically wrong with… read more
