    Please be ok Larry.
    I have no advice, but I enjoy your comments.
    Yes, I know that sounds selfish, but you know what I mean.
    I can't imagine your plight.

    I Googled "hi-sigla" and turned up nothing! Are you sure you're spelling it correctly? I'm interested as to what it is.

    I just want to say how sorry I am to hear of the pain you're going through, Larry. We don't know each other, and we'll probably never meet, but I'm one among the many people who are wishing you well.

    Larry, listen I think You're living in the wrong part of The Country.
    You need to go to Las Vegas for a few weeks. I was just talking to a friend at the market and he and his wife have pain, they're selling everything and moving there BECAUSE when they there in July they felt like Kids again. Maybe it's the desert heat...all they could talk about was getting the pain monkey off their backs.

    I think You should roll the dice (metaphorically speaking) and give it a shot.
    For Your Health.

    I'm keeping you in my prayers since nothing here on earth can totally heal our pain.

    I herniated a few disks a long time ago and nothing could cut the pain - even morphine failed on a trip to the ER. A well meaning surgeon thought a TENS unit could help until I started burning holes in my back.

    During this time my wife tried to hug me and she screamed when the darn thing shocked her through my shirt:eek:

    Darn. I thought this was a thread about a new Yoko Ono record....

    Sorry Larry - first thing I thought of when I ready the title. Seriously though, there's some truth to the high desert thing. I was in Albuquerque over the weekend and my R.A. didn't hurt at all while I was there. Even during the cool evenings. An hour back in Dallas and it was kicked into high gear too.

    At least the gout hasn't raised it's ugly head lately. That sucks too.

    Hope you get some relief soon Amigo!

    Do you mean with the black pepper? I guess some neuro states can cause a craving for certain tastes. When it gets bad and stays bad, I sometimes find a potato chip soothing. Not chips. I really can eat one, after letting it sit on my tongue for a minute. I suppose SOMEONE could google this and see if there's a theory about black pepper.

    I do get a lot of entertainment value out of the whole escapade.

    Man sorry hear your sorrows with pain Larry.
    I read your posts and you have wit and humor and I didn't know you were hurting.

    I can relate to some of your pain, I'm 54 and the ole lower back has dehydrated disks and slipped forward to the point of not having much room for the left leg nerve to get down to the left leg. Causes some weird symptoms and issues.

    I have tried the Hysingla… its effective if your that hurting, but to me it tended to cloud my brain too much if that makes sense. It is extended release hydrocodone.

    Yes I have a friend with advanced RA and has been experimenting with cannabis and cbds to cut down on the opioids. Helps some, and uses melted paraffin wax for the hands. I feel terrible for you, it seems a really terrible thing to live with.

    Distraction for pain relief is a real thing. After having my neck fracture surgery (not a fun time in my life) I was in a lot of pain all day long. I finally decided that I had to go for walk or something just to try and shake the pain. With my head in a neck brace, I couldn't see the ground and broke the pinky toe on my left foot against the weight bench in my house. After screaming a bit, I set the break, and still decided to go for that walk. After a couple of blocks in the fresh air I realized that my toe hurt about as bad as my neck did and was now starting to take over. As I reflected on that, I caught the pinky toe on right foot (wore sandals due to the first break) in a chain link fence along the sidewalk....snapped that one too.

    I damn near had to crawl back to the apartment, but once inside I realized that my neck didn't hurt at all anymore. It was replaced by the pain in my toes, which was a different kind of pain and a more bearable one. It was actually a plus in the end.

    It sounds crazy, but what you need is to be struck by lightning. I have been and one of the consequences was that I didn't feel things like cold and pain much at all for years until the nerves regenerated. I went through 5 Midwest winters without wearing as much as a jacket because I never felt the cold on my skin. Pain was only a minor sensation as well. Sadly, it only lasted about 5 years and now I am a Tin Man in need of oil most days.

    I didn't use Google but... I do know hot peppers cause the body to release endorphines. I imagine a good jolt of black pepper might also release endorphines. I'm not sure there would be much relief as the effect is pretty mild.

    Sending positive thoughts your way from a fellow chronic pain sufferer. Hang in there, brother.

    I am sorry that you have to endure such pain. I am one of the fortunate who seems to do well no matter what. I saw my son though endure pain no one should ever have to suffer. I have seen close up what pain can do. I hope somehow you can find relief.
