They ummed and they ahhed as usual and again said they are leaning in the direction of it being shingles. But this to me is just guessing. Both feet are swollen all be it the left more so than the right. But that alone suggests to me it is not shingles. I still go on the idea of it being a reaction to one of the new meds I have been prescribed as even they were thinking at the beginning but they have not investigated that idea.
I am back at home now on a beautiful sunny day sat in the garden.
Hoping everyone will have a great day and enjoy the weekend.
I am not happy to hear this.
I am trying to look into non opioïd morphine substitutes without the side effects.
Synthetic Conolidine May be as Effective as Morphine for Pain Relief
Author: The Scripps Research Institute
Novel Compound Could Become an Alternative to Problematic Narcotic Analgesics.
Led by Advances in Chemical Synthesis, Scripps Research Scientists Discover that a Rare Natural Product Has Potent Pain-Killing Properties.
Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have for the first time accomplished a laboratory synthesis of a rare natural product isolated from the bark of a plant widely employed in traditional medicine. This advance may provide the scientific foundation to develop an effective alternative to commonly prescribed narcotic pain treatments.
The study, published May 23, 2011, in an advanced online edition of the journal Nature Chemistry, defines a chemical means to access meaningful quantities of the rare natural product conolidine. Based on data from mouse models, the study also suggests that synthetic conolidine is a potent analgesic as effective as morphine in alleviating inflammatory and acute pain, with few, if any, side effects.

Prostatic Acid Phosphatase (PAP): This Pain Relief is 8 Times More Effective Than Morphine
A groundbreaking treatment for pain, eight times stronger than morphine, has been discovered by scientists. The revolutionary technique involves an injection of the protein prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP), which can combat serious discomfort for more than three days -- an astonishing 14 times as long as the five hours of pain relief brought about with a dose of morphine.
The substance appears to have few side effects, and works by neutralizing the chemical in your body that causes your brain to feel pain.
A research team pinpointed the identity of a particular "pain protein" in nerve cells, and then found a way of converting it from a substance that causes pain into one that suppresses it.
When nerve cells are in distress, they release a chemical known as adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which creates the sensation of pain. PAP converts the ATP into adenosine -- which actually suppresses pain.

Natural Cancer Pain Management & Relief: Medication Alternatives
Introduction by Healing Cancer Naturally
Welcome to this page discussing numerous natural, holistic, and non- or less toxic approaches & alternatives to cancer pain management, medication and relief.
According to Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, one of the most horrific issues regarding present-day oncology is that most cancer patients are given morphine even when only suffering with mild pain. Dr. Hamer says that during the EC [‘Epileptic Crises’], when the patient is actually in the recuperation phase and on his way back to health, a single morphine injection can already be fatal. Morphine paralyzes the intestines and disables the restoration functions, in fact the entire person. Dr. Hamer maintains that the pain felt in the "second stage" is actually a positive sign indicating recovery, which modern medicine doesn't understand and instead interprets as a sign of impending death. So "to make the end easier", morphine will be administered actually killing the person.

I hope you are not having too much of a difficult day with this. I am not happy to hear you are in such pain and you had to go back to the hospital again.
