Any suggestions for instant pain relief?

Pain is really bad today, crippling in fact! I am on regular amitriptyline 40mg for pain relief every night, today I have taken 20mg of oramorph, 1g of paracetamol and 400mg of ibuprofen and it hasn't touched it. Got a hot water bottle too! I am open to any suggestions that anyone might have?

Thanks in advance!

Only other thing I can advise is (if you have one) a tens machine, tried mine for the first time and it helped for a little while!!

Also a hot bath I find helps!

Thank you for replying FeeKate!

I haven't got one but would you recommend me buying one? I have heard mixed reviews about them.

Yes I would!! So handy to have for any most pains you might have!

I've had mine for years due to back and neck problems, it does offer short term relief and unfortunately not a long term fix, but it defo helps!

Red hot shower on belly. Point it on ovary, alternating shower head on each side.

Relaxes the muscles contracting. I feel this is better than hot water bottle.

Lying down I find prevents flow which causes me pain. If on period.

Then once painkillers kick in can stand up/potter about/do tasks
