Q. Any other methods of pain relief besides the medication I am taking?

I need help ……I've Fibromyalgia for 15 years, it’s been a very long journey and it makes me feel helpless. I stop taking on medicines many times and once the pain increases I again take them. I know my life is only with medicine and I have to live this way for my children. How it will be if I start taking on, any other methods of pain relief besides the medication I am taking…please tell me.
A1Try yoga, hot/warm baths, resting when needed, exercise as you can tolerate without making pain worse, meditation,walking a little everyday, having a positive attitude and reaching out for support, talking and realizing you are not alone can help a great deal. I had to accept I could not make it through my day without medication! When you go off and on meds, this can sometime result in having to start all over again to reach "theraputic" levels. You are not a druggie...staying on your meds enables you to be as productive as possible in your life and with your family.Good Luck and God Bless!
A2My friend… I am also having fibromyalgia for many years; I am a little lucky to be honest, as my daughter who is a doctor helped me in finding different solution to treat me and kept me out of pain. She guided me to a physical therapist who was an expert in pain management and he helped me in making my pain reduced to the bearable level. I feel lucky , I know not all are same but I can share my luck with others and I am helping others like you as I have suffered with the severity of pain…..I once went to a chiropractor and it too helped me. You can also give a try.

Q. what is the relation between breast Cancer to other kinds of cancers? what are the treatment methods?

ABreast cancer, as other cancers all have many causes, from genetic predisposition to environmental factors such as bad nutrition and obesity. Some cancers are known to be caused by smoking, whereas others don't have a direct connection. Breast cancer diagnosed early can be treated with surgery (removal of the lump) and radiation treatment, with or without chemotherapy or hormonal treatment. It varies with different clinical stages.

Q. what is the relation between breast Cancer to other kinds of cancers? what are the treatment methods?

ABreast cancer is estrogen-dependent, i.e. increased exposure to un-opposed estrogen increase it's risk, so it's also related, at least epidemiologically to ovarian cancer and uterine cancer. Mutations that increase breast cancer's risk, such as BRCA2 also increase the risk of other cancers such as pancreas cancer, skin cancer etc.
