Has anyone got any recommendations for pain relief? I feel like I have tried everything at this point. I like the idea of trying natural remedies in conjunction with medication. I have EDS, fibro and chronic pain due to a back injury in the past. At the moment, I use CBD patches with my meds, braces, a walking stick at times and I use heat to help. I would appreciate any tips and tricks.

      I found ice packs, hot water bottles/heat pads and warm baths/showers help with some of the pain. I also found supplements for joint care help with stiffness.

      have you tried a TENS machine? they’re usually not too expensive and i found it really helped me. it’s a weird sensation to get used to but it’s quite effective in chronic pain management.

        @the.world.of.fox I have tried one a few years ago but I cannot remember if it helped. I'll get one and try it again, thank you
