Does any one else find that the more they do the worse the pain? I've always worked through pain from such minor things as broken toes, dislocated fingers etc. but the flares seem to be getting the better of me. I know without doubt that if I sat on my backside for the next week or so the pain would diminish but the Rayburn still needs refuelling, the fire still needs lighting and so one, just to survive the day in a reasonable amount of comfort I still need to use my hands. Has anyone any advice as to how to reduce the pain without resorting to major drugs.
