Pain is a tough one. I know this condition can be quite painful, as I was taking pain meds for a time myself. I was motivated to get off them as soon as possible. You don’t want to become addicted to pain meds.

Is she doing physical therapy? It is important during recovery to have the right amount and type of physical activity while avoiding overexertion. Perhaps she is trying to get back to her normal physical routine too soon. It’s best to work with a physical therapist and follow the advice of the therapist and a neurologist to guide her through recovery.
