What medications do you take for pain management?
I’ve been less active lately because I’m dealing with acute pain from a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. Yesterday I had a migraine as well and ended up throwing up. I’m wondering what medications you take for pain? Tylenol just isn’t touching my pain right now, but I’m not able to take any NSAID’s (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like Advil because of my transplant-related medications. When I had PH, Advil was off limits as well and I had to be very careful about which pain medications I tried because of the risk of interactions with PH therapies. Tylenol was always the safest option, but didn’t help with more acute pain.
What medications do you take for pain management? Has your doctor prescribed any stronger medications that have helped? I had some bad experiences with the narcotics I was prescribed after my surgery (read: constipation) so I’m hesitant to try those again. But the pain is impacting my ability to function so something’s gotta give.
