I guess this is just something I will have to deal with. I realize that many factors other than meds determine my level of pain (stress, rest, stress, posture, stress, etc). I know recently I have had to deal with an unusual amount of stress with an ongoing custody battle for the past six months. Problem is now that things are getting settled and I know the children's best interest's will now be put first, so my stress level is at an all time low, my pain level is not lowering in response to less stress. I do have good and not so good days. Last visit to PM Dr I got trigger point injections and I really did not get any type of relief. I guess I'm just being a cry baby, but it does get old.
