I am a 22 year old female. All day I'll be fine and I can fall asleep just fine but if I have to get up in the middle of the night for whatever reason I start cramp in my abdominal area really bad; almost like a period cramp but worse. It always gets so bad that I start to feel nauseous. I have a heating pad that helps only sometimes. Ibuprofen used to be effective but not so much anymore. Does anyone know why this is occurring and what are some possible home remedies?View Thread
My mother has the same problem; the reason she experiences the pain is because she has heel spur. A heel spur is a hook of bone that forms on the bone at the back of the foot. Heel spurs cause pain on the bottom of the foot. It is normal for the pain to sometimes affect the leg (that's what her doctor told her). The pain will get so severe that she has to stay off her foot for weeks. he doctor will prescribe hydrocodone or 800mg Ibuprofen to her. There are many ways to treat it. A doctor can give you a series of shots or they will do surgery. I am in no way a doctor so I am not saying that that's what you have but you could ask your doctor about it.View Thread
I am a 22 year old female (I'm not sure if that's important to know or not). These past few days I have been experiencing severe neck and shoulder pain. At first it was just my neck then the pain reached my shoulders as well. I popped my neck to see if it would relieve the neck a/or shoulder pain and it relieves it for about 30-minutes then the pain comes back. I know I shouldn't have done that but I was desperate 'cause the Ibuprofen hasn't had much affect on the pain anymore. The neck and shoulder pain is getting so severe that it is now starting to cause migraines. I have been using a foam pillow for the past few months because the soft pillow randomly started bothering me. Does anyone know what could be causing all this pain or have ideas on how to sooth the pain?View Thread
