2.Pseudo Porphyria causes nasty, scabby, ugly scars on your skin and prevents them from healing.
3.Psuedo Porphyia is caused by NSAIDS.
4. I have had osteoarthritis for over 25 years.
5. I am allergic to Tramadol.
6.If you can't take NSAIDS the next recommended drug is Tramadol
7. If you can't take Tramadol the next step is Narcotics.
8.Narcotics are a slippery slope that just leads to higher and higher doses.
9. I don't want to take Narcotics.
10. It hurts, it hurts all the time, it hurts really, really bad.
11. WHAT THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?!?!?!
I am trying to take Motrin or Tylenol and only take the Vicodin when I can't stand it. The problem is when you hurt like this you get crabby and grouchy and strike out at the loved ones around you and I hate that. Poor J is taking such a beating because he is the one here with me. I am hoping that as the last of the NSAIDS leave my body the pain will peak and I will be able to build up a tolerance to it. And when we get back from our quick trip up North I am going to make an appointment with the pain clinic to see if I would be a good candidate for accupuncture, biofeed back or some other treatment I am not aware of. If you know of anything please let me know. Thanks for listenting.
