    I do not get to my new Dr. till next week. But what can I do now if the Motrin doesn't help.my hand is swollen and stiff with severe pain along with my spine.

    I can not take aspirin because of my stomach. Tylenol and Motrin hurts my stomach. What is left? I have ulcers so I really have to watch what I take.

    I take warm baths it helps a little til I get out and then I hurt just as bad. Warm help a little ,Ice hurts to bad.
    Anybody have anything else that might help til I get to the Doctor?

    I'm so sorry, I feel like I am all ways complaining lately about all my different pains. I know people get tired of hearing about it. I was just hopeing that someone may have something new they have tried.

    I am not sure what the whole sitution is but, maybe you can buy an OTC sleep aid and just crash out. Sometimes, sleep can be a healthy escape from pain. What about a Ben Gay type rub? Or a trip to the ER? Sorry, to hear your all banged up. Don't appologize for complaining....I may not understand completly but, I sure do smyapathize. We all know what it is like to live with pain, here. Good luck!

    I've heard butter burr can be very helpful. You can find it at a healthfood store. I'm not sure if I've spelled it right.
