My pain lately has been through the roof. It's almost at the place where I was when I was first dx with Lupus last year. My daughter went into full-time care then and I was able to take loads of pain killers.

But now I have her home and we have help in the mornings but I am so reluctant to take *anything* because I have to care for her.

The pain has been so bad I've been taking some dissolvable voltaren and got a GI bleed and wound up in hospital from too much of the drug.

So now I'm back to the start and just don't know what to do?

Any tips or BTDT advice?

Thanks.

I have a lot of help from dh. It is really hard though some days, as I have to get up and go to work no matter what. I take pain meds when it is really bad, I am also on voltaren (not dissolvable, didn't know they had that!) and I think it is messing with my stomach too! Is there anyone that can help you in the afternoons? Relatives or anything that could just come a couple days a week to give a little extra help sometimes? Hugs sweetie.

Wow, sounds like you are dealing w/a lot of pain. I dont think my pain is as bad at all. So my suggestions probably wouldnt help. I take Ibuprofen for pain. I've never had to take anything stronger as of yet. Sometimes i do get these pains in my legs that hurt sooo bad, and the only thing that seems to relieve is a hot bath. I hope you can find something that will help. I know the little aches I have are no fun, so I cant imagine what you are going through.
