Is there anyone out there can tell me what kind of pain medicine works for them other than hard drugs that stop u from functioning. I'm currently on Ibprofen which helps but is starting to upset my stomach I've been taking it since 8- 2012 I want to stop using it but The pain becomes to unbearable when I stop taking it.  Any suggestions?  and I'm also taking fentanly since I started my Xgeva shot which makes my whole body aches as if I have the flu.

I don't have any medication to suggest but my son Guy - who was diagnosed with Bone Cancer and was in considerable pain - used an electro-acupuncture hand held machine called a Healthpoint. It's advantages were that it was non-invasive (i.e. did not pierce the skin with a needle point which could have lead to infection); was applied directly to the area of pain and/or a meridian point; could be applied by a third party or by himself in the times when he was more mobile.  It's benefits were very obvious and I started to use the machine myself for pain relief from my arthritis - and have continued to do so for over 10 years!

I believe this machine is still available from Dove Health in the UK. Their web address is www.DoveHealth.com .
