So my question is this: Do you feel 'normal' pain while on meds? And by 'normal' I mean, if you have reached that point with your PM where your pain is managed very well, and you stub your toe, does it hurt like hell, or is it just, no big deal? What prompts me to ask this is..
I'm at a GREAT point with my meds. Great pain control, and no excessive negative side effects. Last night I was swimming with my son, and I pushed off from the side of the pool, somehow went low and smacked my head on the floor of the pool. I split my forehead open in a nice 1 1/2 inch break, with puddles of blood, etc. It HURT. But my back didn't. I'm fine now, but thought it very odd that my back pain was masked but I still felt the pain in my head. Is that normal?
Be safe swimming!
