Meandering thought- I'm so used to being in constant pain, as I still haven't found a painkiller that works, (common in HMS apparently). it seems That the pain in my wrist, following tendon surgery yesterday, is bearable. I took co codamol yesterday, with anti sickness meds, but it just made me feel really sick! So I haven't taken anything since. Seems there's no point, since nothing works anyway. So have I inadvertently raised my pain threshold? I am in a lot of pain, in my wrist obviously, following surgery, but also in my ankle (the main site of my ongoing severe pain, for which no painkillers work!).
