Hank, my overall pain on a 1-10 scale depends on the day but for two hours of the day it rests at 6. As I told my pain specialist, it then climbs to a 7/8, I take my meds, it dives back to 6, four hours later it climbs to a 7/8 and stays there even with pain meds. By night fall I’m around a 8/9. I take my next long term pain med so I can try to sleep but by then I’m in so much pain, sleep is impossible. I take my next pain meds and I finally doze about 3am only to wake around 6 or 8am and start the day again!

I’ve learned to breathe and compartmentalize a lot of the burning and aching. The shooting and lancing pain takes more effort but I can do that too. The cramps hit without warning and James helps with those. We’re getting better as a team in taming those down in quick order but they drive my levels up faster than anything. Standing is something I can’t tolerate but I can’t sit forever. Lol I pay for my wandering.
