Hello BCarroll,

May I ask, what kind of pain are you experiencing?

I'd bet that most of us mothers recall those days of little sleep, however little sleep when also experiencing pain just makes both situations worse.

You ask what you should do: I'd suggest being as specific with your MD as you can be. Tell him/ her where the pain is, its severity on a 0-10 scale with 10 being the worst pain imaginable. Also, what makes it worse, what makes it subside.

Your primary care doctor is probably with whom you could begin. With hope, if your primary care MD can diagnose you and/ or refer you to a specialist who works with your illness or injury.

I hope that you write again with an update.

CTB
