[QUOTE=HunnyPoohM]Hi! I’ve been experiencing some intense pain in my legs, and I don’t know what to do for it. I’ve had it before, and I’ve had to be admitted to the hospital for pain control, and while I was there, they would give me a couple of rounds of IVIG.
But the thing is…I don’t want to have to go to the hospital everytime this happens. So, I was wondering if any of you experience this, and if so, what do you do for it?
I have a pain management doctor, and I’m on exalgo and roxycontin for pain. But when it gets this bad…the meds don’t work.
PLEASE HELP ME!! Thank you!!!:([/QUOTE]
BEfore we worked out an infusion schedule I used to get 200gIG over 5 days once per month.I went 4 months before we perfected the schedule.Just before the next infusion each month I became extremely weak and would fall down.On more than one occasion there was no one around to help me up and I exerted all the strength I could to get to the nearest chair or low fixture.Ifinally noticed that every time I exerted all the strength I had the pain[which was with me all the time] disappeared.Since then whenever I have pain I flex the muscels nearest the source of pain and where the pain is over a large part of my body I simply tense up as hard as I can and it works. A word of caution tho. Do not under any circumstance STRETCH. As you likely know we must be carefull not to over exercise and I think that is what happens when you stretch. This still works for me [when I say tense up I don,t maintain the stretch,Istop ater a second or two.Good luck.E-mail me with your results.
