I've been in flare up for the past 36 hours, of purgatory. My knee was so painful that I seriously thought of phoning someone, anyone, for an injection as the Tramadol and fentanyl patch weren't touching the pain. I held it together by being very naughty and taking an extra dose of painkillers. The pain has been so bad that I couldn't go to bed last night and slept on the couch as I had to keep my knee at 90 degrees. All of a sudden it dropped from excruciating to painful. No explanation. No idea why but I am not complaining. Painful I can cope with. Even the fog has lifted a wee bit.
Has anyone got a suggestion as to how to keep sane during a flare up? How do you all cope with it? All suggestions welcome
