My Momma has been having severe leg and butt pain for several days. She was in the ER Sunday evening and most of today. She was given tramadol about 2 wks ago. Sunday's trip to the ER revealed that she's allergic to the tramadol, so they gave her percocet. Neither drug has helped. At the ER today they tried darvocet and morphine, they didn't help either. I'm not sure what else they tried. The ER managed to get her back doctor's appt moved up to 1/2/14 from 1/9/14. She can't move without screaming in agony. I'm just looking for the different ways people keep themselves as comfortable as possible when they are hurting so bad. I understand some of her pain, I have piriformis syndrome. The things that I do for myself don't help her. She has RA, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, heart problems and possibly spinal stenosis (not 100% positive on this one yet).
So if anyone is willing to share their favorite ways to cope with the pain we would be really grateful. Thank you
