Does anyone have some good advices for dealing with physical pain?
I donīt want to go into detail with my issue but i am on medication already. Pain is in head/face area, neck, arms and back.
Iīm just looking for any nice methods (maybe something homeopathic?) you tried out already and worked well :) Or some stuff your grandma told you! Just anything that may be useful :giggle:

I also need help for sleeping with pain.

Iīm sure you know something! Every advice is helpful :heart:

(and you get a llama if you come up with something good. i noticed that no one does things for free nowadays)

Seems like this thread wonīt die so i have to end it ;) Not because i found a sollution but because itīs getting kinda repetetive. I want to thank everyone for the great (and sometimes weird) advices! Hereīs a list of suggestions for people who have a similar problem (the ones i still remember):

-massages
-warm baths
-new matress/pillows
-meditation
-positive and supportive thinking
-breathing techniques
-desensitization
-yoga/ stretching/ swimming/ sports in general
-animal therapy
-acupuncture
-seeing different doctors like physiotherapists etc.
-weed
-medication
-more medication
-science

Even if i didnīt find a sollution for my problem i was still happy to see how many people came up with great ideas and how many people wanted to help me. Itīs strange because this is the internet so i guess i was lucky that there were almost no jerks :giggle:

Thank you all!

No, my mum has chronic pain problems so yes c:
It's generally better if you ask a specialist, they can explain it best

For dealing with the pain, I suggest warm baths. They help me a lot with my muscle cramps and arthritis. Water/swimming in general is pretty good if you have pain from moving around, because the water supports your body.
As for sleeping with pain, I have a featherbed on top of my mattress, which helps a ton. Also, make sure you're warm but not overheated when you sleep. A soft blanket or two in a warm room generally works for me. Memory-foam pillows, layered feather pillows, or one of each help too.
That's coming from an arthritic insomniac 16-year-old, so I don't know if it will help quite as much with your problem, but these methods are pretty much all-purpose.

oh you canīt know this but i have a problem with baths and swimming so that sadly isnīt an oportunity for me :( but itīs still a very good advice!

i bought a new matress already but a new pillow is a good idea so iīll probably get one soon :)

i donīt think your age really matters. you have your experience with pain and insomnia so you had good tips :3 thank you!
