I am a very active 29 year old pharmacy technician. For 11 years I have been on my feet 5 days a week for 12 to 16 hours. I have two 7 year old children. I have As. This morning was the very first morning that my body would not allow me to get out of bed. Im not sure what to think of this. I have tryed so many medications but I am NSAID hypersensitive. The sulfasalazine gave me drug induced pneumonia... this list goes on but I guess so does the day. I chose to try to go back to sleep and as much as possible ignore the pain... just venting. Thank you.

We have days like this as well. Sometimes your body just tells you that a break is needed...a small vacay to reset. I used long acting tylenol for pain and it helps me rest as well as aspercreme on the hurting areas.
