    I'm sorry you're feeling so bad. I know the weather can really knock us out! I had a very bad headache this morning. I was at work and I told my friend that I used to drink a Coke to get rid of headaches but I can't do that any longer. She suggested I take Exedrin. So I took some and the headache went away almost immediately but I was hyper for 2 hours after that! I'll never do that again! I had to get some calming tea to make myself feel better! Try to relax and take a warm bath. That might help you. Listen to some soothing music. I hope this helps!

    Hey Annette,

    I guess you discovered... the active ingredient in Excedrin is caffeine! Some medication, huh?

    Im sorry you are having such a rough time of it. Pain usually makes it so hard for me to fall asleep so the doc put me on a half a muscle relaxer. It does help....but for 12 hours. And that's just half the pill!!! I guess that would be great....but I have a little one. Anyway, maybe you can inquire about something like that? Oh and I love Tyenol Cold and Sinus... always works like a charm for me.

    I am so sorry you are in such pain, gee I was there last week, pulled a nerve in my lower back, and the pain was so bad I could not stand up straight (when I did get up :) went down my left leg too.

    Sure hope you get some relief soon.

    Is it possible for you to sit in a bathtub? If so, try this soak:

    3 cups of Epson Salts
    3 bottles of Peroxide (large)

    In a tub of water as warm as you can stand it.

    Soak for 20 minutes only. Then go straight to bed, it will make you feel weak for about a half hour. Will also open up the sinuses from the steam. You will at least get a nights rest, this is not a cure, but it sure helps.

    A heated mattress pad is wonderful too, its a gentle heat and it feels soooooo good on those sore legs or back.

    Sear's, Penny's and Wal-Mart sell them online as well as the Penny's catalog.

    Let us know how you are feeling, will send a prayer up for you!

    Shalom, Shirl

    I have been going thru' a bad time with pain for over a week. Started in my legs and has then been in shoulder , neck, arms and seemingly in my chest. Had the worst cramping and seizing of muscles going on and have been s-o-o-o-o tired and running hot on and off????. Have done a bit of tidying up in my house today, but that's all. Too tired to do any more but feel better that it "looks" tidier. Was badly in need of a tidy up but the rest can stay. See my specialist next week and hopefully he will give me some meds to help. Saw him nearly three weeks ago and he has run some tests etc so he will have a better idea of what to give me this time. Hope you feel better soon. Love Ozgran.
