Tips For Fast Pain Relief

Tips For Fast Pain Relief

I’m looking any advice for pain relief. I would like to find something that works fairly quick. I don’t sleep well because of joint pain and I’m really feeling the sleep deprivation!!

I would recommend trying CBD. It has made a world of difference to my sleep.

I don't know if you have tried CBD oil, and as for myself, even though I take it I am still undecided. That said, I do like Tommy Chong's night time version of CBD, which contains L-tryptophan and a bit of valerian. It helps me sleep.

Hi AlyssaDawn22, sorry to hear that you are having so much pain. I only take one Advil per day and it works well for me and even helps my fatigue. I also take a hot shower each day and a power nap. Hope that you feel better soon.

Pain relief is so individualized. It was suggested to me to try OTC'S: Melatonin taken regularly can help set your sleep cycle & you can add the others to it. Start at lower doses, start with one, monitor results, add another in 5-7 days & monitor. Try sleepytime tea, have a routine bedtime. If not working, Lopidem prescription is not a sleeping pill but also helps reset your sleep cycle. Try for at least a week if provider goes this way. If still not sleeping, push your provider for something else. You must get regular sleep. Ppl die from lack of sleep & repercussions.
Prayers & hugs. Let us know.
