I have a very close friend who deals with chronic pain issues similar to mine. She has has diabetes since she was a teenager, and the meds she can take are extremely limited. When things are really bad, she'll take a couple of Tylenol, and if they're EXTREMELY bad, she takes a couple of Ibuprofen, but can only take a few doses before it affects her kidneys. The ibuprofen is what really helps her with her pain.
I'm sure many of you have Diabetes on top of your other health issues; can you tell me what kind of meds you've been able to take that have helped you? She has a connective tissue disorder of some sort (probably an arthritis), and has extreme neck and shoulder pain. I want to see what I can find out for her, as she's had a very rough month or so....I hate watching her suffer like she does, and she won't ask for help.
Thanks in advance.
