Scott, I'm sorry about Ur horrible PAIN. How are Ur ELECTROLYTES?? If Ur CALCIUM is "off" = too High or too Low, that can cause Pain; also Ur POTASSIUM, if its too High Or too Low, it can cause almost "deathly" problems. My late spouse was a MD & use to have to give me Injections of Calcium for the horrible Pain in my Feet, Ankles-legs. Now, I still have TROUBLE w/both = thus, must have my ELECTROLYTES checked almost Monthly. I have Type 1 Diabetes, Wear an INSULIN PUMP & have Bad Heart (wear Implanted DEFIBRILLATOR) so my Electrolytes Levels are Essential to my "well-being". For PAIN, even extreme PAIN, I take a Regular Aspirin w/ 2 Omega Fish Oil Capsules of 1400mg/980mg of Omega-3 (buy it @ Costco). . Of course, if U take "Cumadin/Warfarin" U can't take Aspirin. I, too, use to take Norco; but my Aspirin/Fish Oil Routine Strong PRAYER keeps me going. Pray U find better Relief. LcbsView Thread
WOW! I'm sorry but MUST AGREE that U are eating WAY-TOO-MUCH BREAD!! Ugh!! Cut out all that Bread; maybe ONLY 1 SLICE per day? Can't U eat the Tuna & other Meat & even the Peanut Butter W/O that ABOMINABLE BREAD that really RAISES Ur BG & thus, A1c. I suggest that U try eating the Tuna, Chicken, etc. on a Nice "Bed" of Chopped Lettuce Slices of Cucumbers. If U must have Peanut Butter, make sure it is UNSALTED & Mash a Banana w/it & that way get some Fruit at the same time. I've had Type 1 Diabetes over 40 yrs & wear an insulin Pump & Test my BG about 6 times per day, in an effort to maintain Good Control (I also have Heart Defibrillator Implanted).Hope & Pray U IMPROVE, LcbSmithView Thread
