this past week i’ve been in a small pain flaire in my entire back and have been completely fatigued. most ibuprofens don’t help me at all and the only thing that ever helps is laying down but i can’t lay down most of the time so it makes the pain worse. anyone have any tips or suggestions for what they’ve tried to make the pain and fatigue more tolerable? my body just feels so bad which makes me feel bad mentally too. it’s so exhausting and i never know what to do when i feel like this.

      I also suffer from intense back pain & fatigue… is there a reason you aren’t able to lay down? :( even if for a few days perhaps you can call out sick and rest. If not, thermacare has these heating pads that you can wear, they’re nice to wear all day if you have to be out and about. I find it also helps my mood if I indulge in other ways (I.e favorite foods, small treat, favorite shows & rest) doesn’t make the pain go away but it might lift your spirits

        @Ouchlicia it’s just that it’s hard to find the time in the day to lay down when i need it
