    How to properly control your Pain

    This is a tip on how to control your pain with the pain medications that have been given to you.

    A general rule of thumb is when you feel your pain around a five or six..you need to take your pain meds, if you wait until your pain passes a 6, normally you will not be able to get your pain level back down with your normal pain medications.

    Listen to your body..and always inform your doctor if you are having to exceed your recommended dosage, if you have a good doc who understands Endo, they should know that it can be exasperated by certain things.

    Keeping a Log about what seems to make your pain worse can also help your doctor track your pain and control it better!!
