My pain is so bad it's nauseating. I have pain so bad it's almost debilitating. I'm a strong person and love to be busy, I couldn't Handle the pain at work today.

I often have right shoulder blade and lower right skull pain and take Advill. We'll now a new pain began on the lower right side back rib cage. OMG it's sickening and I could barley function At work today I thought I was going to throw up at any second! All I wanted to do was lay down but I'm sure I could get comfy. I could barley sleep last night due to pain. My right hand fingers usually go numb while I'm getting ready for the day (it takes me tens mins or so). Is this normal?

Anyone have any ideas why I hurt so bad.

I think its stress?

  • Not sure why you are taking on that kind of pain with Advil, there is no prize that I am aware of for gutting it ou. If you are afraid of narcotics don't be, I think most people on this board will tell you that you will not get "high" when there is that much pain involved. You need relief so that you can function, that is what pain meds are for, not to lay in the bed.

    More important than getting relief is the fact that you are in pain. That is your body's way of telling you that something is wrong. The greater the pain the greater something is out of whack. You need to put some effort into figuring out what that is.
