Q. Is there any good source for heel pain relief, besides NSAIDs? My heel pain is most severe at night when I sleep. It's as if the way I position my feet worsen the condition, but I'm at a loss to know how to position my feet. During the day my heels feel so but don't typically bother me. A. I have found that keeping my feet flexed (the position they are in when standing) helps ease the pain of plantar facitis. I also don't let my feet get cold(wear socks)and keep heavy blankets and quilts off the feet. Placing a box under the covers at the foot of the bed will help keep the blankets up. Do try the exercises recommended on the above web sites. It usually resolves in about 6 months. Best wishes!
If I ever forget to change one of me patches, that’s horrible. It’s the worst feeling ever forgetting to change a patch. Why’s that? Because it’s the same kind of medication what they give heroin addicts so it’s, if you forget to change it you get bad withdrawal symptoms so I’ll start itching all over, feeling hot and cold, headaches, unable to sleep and that’s just forgetting to change one day. So it’s horrible. Wow. What kind of patches are these, sorry, what’s the name of it? It’s buprenorphine. It’s like a morphine based. You mentioned the withdrawals there. You didn’t mention pain. Is pain something which gradually comes back as opposed to maybe in one day does the patch leave you in a lot of pain? No, if, well, really I don’t notice the pain if I’ve forgot to change the patch because the withdrawals are that bad, I just can’t think about anything to be honest and it’s sent me into hospital a couple of times where I’ve forgot to change it and I’ve had a bad reaction just from forgetting to change it for one day. When you were hospitalised, what were you suffering from then? At the same time, I’d just started a new medication because I’d reacted wrong, badly to that and because I’d forgot to change the patch, they both reacted badly together and it sent me kind of crazy and my friends started getting worried about me so mum took me into hospital and I ended up going three days without sleep. So they had to give me something to just knock me out of it. Okay. Do you mind just saying what you meant when you say you went a bit crazy? Well, I started I actually started hallucinating because I’d had an allergic reaction at the same time as withdrawal symptoms so I’d actually gone over to my friend’s house and I just asked her if I were a butterfly and it kind of freaked her out so that’s why they says, “We’d better get you to hospital.” Do you remember much about what happened? Yeah, I remember it all. It were, I’d started twitching really badly and the doctor at A and E could see that something were happening and that and at first they said, “Oh, you’ve got to try and get some sleep.” “Oh, I can’t. I’ve been trying for three days.” So then they gave me some diazepam to knock me out and then after I’d actually got some sleep, the patches eventually started kicking in and I started feeling better after a couple of days.
Endometriosis implants are most commonly found on the ovaries, the Fallopian tubes, outer surfaces of the uterus or intestines, and on the surface lining of the pelvic cavity. They also can be found in the vagina, cervix, and bladder. Endometriosis may not produce any symptoms, but when it does the most common symptom is pelvic pain that worsens just prior to menstruation and improves at the end of the menstrual period. Other symptoms of endometriosis include pain during sex, pain with pelvic examinations, cramping or pain during bowel movements or urination, and infertility.
