My leg's been hurting for days now but it's tolerable. It's just that my head is aching too probably due to the weather. i stayed outside my room for a while this morning and this headache started right after i went back in to my room. I can't keep on tolerating both. I don't like taking medicines but I can't concentrate with what i'm doing.

It's better to manage pain and take meds only when the pain is excruciating that it's taking over .. I hope you don't get that pain often ..

Yes it was a car accident. I hope and pray that the bone will grow faster. It's so hard to move around with this fixator.

@MGjhaud I hope it does not get too hot. I read somewhere that it looked like it was going to rain in the Philippines? It was hot here too, but it's cooling down as it's evening 7pm here. Have a nice day!!

Maybe you're dehydrated. You should drink lots of water.

I also don't like to take medicines. For my psoriatic arthritis, I was prescribed high powered pain reliever which costs almost a hundred pesos. If the pain is very intense, that's the only time that I take it. But if it is tolerable, I don't take. But my doctor told me that I may take biogesic first, then if the pain is already continuous then I have to take the prescribed one. I'm afraid of the side effects of synthetic meds.

thats great. i dont wanna grow old with these pain killers but i cant help it sometimes. i took alaxan the other day instead of the prescribed med. i was relieved before i went to sleep. seems that my leg therapy is a bit too much nowadays.

@MGjhaud That's good at least we should not be dependent on the prescribed meds that are strong.

Could be a hot weather? If it is, you just need to hydrate yourself up.

I hope so too. I cant wait to be out there walking alone. Im still scared whenever i go out in public even with a walker or on a wheelchair. I feel that it might take years and years before i can be on my own again.

I think you have to take medicine to relieve the pain, and you have to rest well too. The weather is really terrible. i am almost terrified to go out in this weather.

if you don't want to take the prescription, maybe try hot or cold compress?
