I hope so.
I remember being in terrible pain for a few hours after the shot.
The following day was usually great!

Best wishes!

Funny I just wrote the same sentiment before reading your post.

Sometimes trying to figure out the whys can make you nuts.
It is what it is.
Now let's work to find out what will make it better.
Sometimes it will be chemicals.
Sadky, it can take time to find the right med or combination of meds and/or therapy.
Hey, this is no different than what is going to happen to someone with other illnesses like diabetes or high blood pressure.
We're all the same in that way.
We have to have medical interventions to be well and to live our best lives.

Could be. There IS a genetic component for some people.
I, for one have that component.
So does my daughter, son and now my 8 year old granddaughter!

I've done the same.
I weaned myself down 25%.
I've stopped for a few months to let my body acclimate.
I'll continue again after the summer and summer activities.
No rush!

That's what we have to remember.
We are all different and react differently.

Hi Vradi!
Welcome to our group!
I wish I could give you some advice that can help you, but I am sorry I can't.
I suffered from chronic pain for over a decade.
The pain came from my cervical and lumbar spines.
After years of suffering, I had 2 spinal surgeries over the last 1-1/2 yrs.
I am so thankful that I found a wonderful neurosurgeon who was able to help me!

I pray that you find the help I was able to find.
Wishing you nothing but the best!
