Having a lot of leg pain today. I am trying to not just pop pain pills all the time, and when I do, I try to do a different one each day. Extra-Strength Excedrin works well, but keeps me awake. Ibuprofen works well but is bad for you???? Advil doesn’t work well and destroys my stomach. What to do? So tired and pained, I decide to try exercise. Briefly. Very briefly. I ellipsed for about five minutes, and believe it or not…..less pain. I am interested to see what happens later in the day, however, because usually when I do something like ellipse or shop or whatever, the pain doesn’t set in until later or even the next day or so. I’ll keep you posted.
