For a couple years now my ms has been in the forms of migrains and pain on my sides and my lung copacity is now at 56%. Well the pain gets to me a lot. I have a fear that id od on pain pills (ive done it once or twice before by accedent). When it gets bad i tend to forget things alot and forgetting that i take meds and take more and more. Nothing seems to help either. I try my best to function and do what i can and be strong for my family. And then i end up in the hospital every other week for breathing problems or pain. I have my fear of becoming addicted any pain pills or that i would od on them again. But i also am scared that my lungs could give out on me as well. I feel like im alone and pushing everyone i care about away i dont know what to do about anything anymore
Nron, there are two posts in Treating MS : Re: Pressure headaches and treatment, and Take Charge of My MS.
The Re: Pressure headaches and treatment has a proccess for eliminating headaches. Doing the exercise whenever there is the beginning of a headache or other pain will with precision, eliminate them. I use to ahve headaches all the time now I never have a headache. It has been years since I was miserable with a headache.
In the Take Charge of MY MS there are muscle relaxation exercises and relaxation techniques towards the fourth week. Deep breathing and muscle relaxing will give you some relief.
