I Need Pain Releivers: Any Suggestions?

12 August 2007 - 12:05 PM

Hi,

Before I knew I had trouble with gleuten, I was in intense pain all the time, I was in pain for so long, I thought everyone felt this way all the time and I made a habit of ignoring it. Can you beleive it?

But since I cut out wheat products, and things contaminated with wheat, I have experienced my first pain free days ever!

However, now that I am pain free most of the time, I realize what a pain in the booty my menstral cramps are. Man do they hurt!

I am having a hell of a time with menstral cramps, not to mention if I get a headache, I am pretty much screwed.

My doctor says that she does not know of any pain medications I can take that would not be totally overkill - she suggested some herbal stuff, but it is not cutting it.

Before I knew I had celiac issues, I took ibeuprofin. I heard that in Canada, they have meds that I can take, but that is the extent of my lead: meaning I have no idea what meds, where to get them or why they might be OK coming from out of Canada, much less how to order them.

Any help here? This is interfering with my ability to focus at work, to sleep and feel comfortable doing everyday things. And the worst part, is that this is going to continue to happen once a month for the rest of my life!!!

Any helpful suggestions would be much appreciated.
From Wendy
