What do you take for that butcher knife pain in our thoracic ??

What if some lower your heart rate & BP ??

What is best to take??

Do you also take inflammatory drugs?

IN constant pain--- especially sitting

Getting new MRI 15th..... Afraid more wrong... Profile shows previous...

Many thanks for any help..please!!!

Also --- which helps you best heat or ice or. Both at times??


  • If you find something that works for you please let me know. I hope you find something and hope for the best with your upcoming MRI.
  • knife in thoracic?. none medicine touch it. at all.
    i think that i take morphine, it would still be there.
    i like ice or heat,but this is not for long term. only temporarily.
    sitting is for me also the worst...i realy want put everything with my arm out...arggg it goes on my nerves so muchhhhh....
  • So what do you do or how do you sit or do you just lay?

    I can't lay on R. Cause of rotator pain! Just the pits..
  • i sit very uncomfortable.
    so i lay mostly(esspecialy on side)
    i dont have energy anymore at my 25 age to fight with this *hit....
  • I take slow release narcotics. First I started with MS Contin then after two years went to Oxycontin and B/P and heart rate are good because the meds are released slowly. I also take Naproxen and anti-inflammatory and Cymbalta for the sharp knife pains I get in my back and neck. If I go for a walk and sore afterwards I put ice on but I usually have my infrared heating pad on while sitting down or I can't sit too long. I hope you get your results back soon after you have your MRI back so you're Dr. can review it and help you. I hope you can get something for your pain. Best wishes. Charry

  • Everything seems to keep me awake too ---

    Today my rotator cuff is hurting as bad as thoracic...... I can not have surgery again on it because I can't handle the therapy for the rotator because of the therapy hurting my thoracic..... I don't know what in the world I'm going to do....

    Prayers excepted...
