she's already taking alot of prescribed meds but unfortunately nothing has helped much. It's getting harder for her to focus on other things and keep herself happy, that's why im trying to find something that might make her a little bit better :/
Well, major trauma pains, help people, dissassociate.
Picture it, like a large ship. When a ship takes on water, due
to a breach in the hull. It has smaller compartments, the control room can shut down, to preserve the rest of the ship, and keep it from being compromised.
Such is the way of pain. This is going to sound weird. But, even in tatooing, people want to escape that pain, right? Well, you, mentally, have to go away with it.Weird as it seems, either blank it out and concentrate on music, talking, comedy, other things, to trick the mind from feeling or concentrating on it.
There is another method, I use for pain. It's turn it into a symphony of something positive. Yah, weird. But, what other choices do you have? I try to play music in my mind, to the pain, to, again, trick my mind.
But, homestly, the person that stated ibuprofen and such, that would be the best option, I think. The rest is for multiple trauma individuals.
My aunt had the same thing for a while, hers was treated fairly well by basically sorting her life out a bit, normalising sleep patterns and de-stressing. Tell her to keep using the meds and I'd also encourage her to go back to the doctor and tell them it's not working, they might up the dose a bit or give her something stronger to take.
One thing that my aunt always swore by though was a nice relaxing bath. I don't know if it will help your mum in the same way but it could be worth a shot. You could look into some herbs that have some healing properties and put them in too. If she's just feeling under the weather I'd make her a cup of tea, it's a simple gesture but it at least shows you care. I hope things start improving for the two of you soon.
Believe it or not, trying to avoid pain is the opposite thing people should do. If you face the pain, your body will release natural pain relievers IE: endorphins. Endorphins stop nerve cells from giving off new signals. There are many ways to provoke the release of endorphins, meditation is one of them. Exercise is another. You should look into them. There is a lot of reading material on the subject of triggering endorphins as natural chronic pain relief.
