...a clock trickling down...
A Brotherly Triad...
Forever in my Memory...
>> View all 5,731
My thigh wishes I could get high,
I hate to whine and hate even more to cry,
Hopefully when this wet weather pattern does break,
My pain will end, oh please somehow make it dissipate…
It started on Thursday prior to two days of rain,
I don’t deal well with any kind of pain,
My back and leg have not experienced being enflamed,
So many years have passed since last I felt what herein I explain…
Ibuprofen & Aleve have been my only friends,
Though ice as well has numbed my nerve ends,
I really don’t invoke anything spiritual if I can help it,
But if God on high would be so kind, I’d appreciate it,
To walk Rufuz is even hard to attend,
Thankfully he does not need a leash,
For him with regards that I really must commend…

|Ah throbbing, burning stabbing miserable pain, yes it is woeful aye matey.
I am sure God on high would be more than happy to oblige your request, he doesnt like to see any of us suffer.
Take it easy dear friend, perhaps a wheat bag heated in microwave would be helpful in the thigh, personally i use magnetic therapy, it helps a lot.
But the best thing to do, is to go for a major detox of the bod, I mean major, Im talking colonic clean outs, gross as it sounds, all that uric acid is causing you grief, and painkillers just mask it.
Get an erbal cleanse that doesnt contraindicate with your meds, ask the quack ok, and go for it, slowly but surely.
I did and I have not worn thermal leggins for weeks.
Lost weight too lol.
Love yah heaps, feel for your pain hon

|I feel for you and I have had a few very rough days myself. I have peripheral neuropathy in my legs and feet. I also have lubar pain and have an implant to help but after moving all over the room and trying every combination I was praying just to get comfortable and finally took pain meds and that helped me..I hope you are comfortable soon....although I can't spell;)|

|I broke my foot getting into an airplane 5 years ago Ed. With the approaching hurricane, it's been throbbing like a toothache today. I feel for ya buddy...I use Icy Hot (muscle rub from the drugstore) before a hot shower. Then I take the pulsating shower massage and hold it against the area I just treated with Icy Hot and it loosens the muscles. I hope this helps you. Blessings to you, Michelle|

|I'm sorry to hear that you are having pain, Ed. I get knee pain sometimes and it makes it really difficult to walk. I am not the patient type that can sit back or lay down all day so I continue to agrivate it. After trying every knee brace on the market, I finally found one that worked and was actually comfortable and I found it at, of all places, Wal-Mart. Perhaps wrapping the leg with an Ace bandage might help or maybr a brace that is specific to the area you injured. At least it is the weekend and you can stay off of it a bit. Get better quick, Ed!!
