    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.

    Hi Nron,

    I'm sorry to hear that you'r experiencing so much pain- and you're right to be concerned about overdosing.  I'm glad to read that you are getting medical attention when you think you need to, but worried that you're having a difficult time. Have you talked with your doctor about your concerns with your medications and dosing?  Always feel free to call us if you need someone to talk to- we aren't doctors here, but we would be more than happy to provide support. 1 800 344 4867.
