      A physiotherapist was the person that caused the main injury that the pain is connected to

      For pain, heat or cold might help. Is there any way you can get physio? Distractions are always good when it comes to pain. I would put the tv on to something like Friends or Simpsons to distract me

      I have a weighted massage heating pad. Sometimes I just use the massage setting on the areas that are the most angry at me and it helps lots! I also use CBD and hemp oil/balms specifically for pain, and even though they aren't FDA approved, I've had no side effects and no reactions. (I'm allergic to half the planet).

      I've found pain meds don't work for me at all, so I mostly ice it. They taught me in a pain clinic I once attended to put ice in a wet towel and lay against it. It hurts more at first, but after about 4-5 minutes, it numbs really well. Don't do this for longer than 15 minutes, though, as it can deaden your nerve cells.

      Depends on the pain. I find something that really gives a pleasure boost. I do a lot of hot baths for muscle relaxation and dim lights. When I have no choice but to work through it, just let the people around you know. I can work in auto-pilot, but trying to engage mentally in conversation is a guaranteed overload. I also try to get ahead of it. It's harder to treat pain that's started than prevent it. That's just biology of nerve cells. Don't kid yourself that "it won't be that bad" or "I'm weak if I don't just deal with it". If you have pain meds, take them at the first signs. I get migraines and if I wait too long the wind-up is too much.

      I go on my phone and scroll mindlessly on some form of social media because it distracts me pretty quickly. I also like to find something funny to watch or listen to which usually distracts me and I also will play phone games like those silly ones with bad ads which just waste time but that’s kind of all I want to do when I’m hurting. Sorry if this doesn’t really help.

        @Knees What games do you play??

          @Eliza2.0 subway surfer, BitLife, pocket love, roblox (fun if you want a variety of things), paper.io, and Toca world. Those are my favorite to play when I kind of want to get my mind off of things.
