Hey Margi,

OTC is paracetamol, syndol, paracetamol plus, all those sorts of things.

The other thing I do. Is to sit down, take a *very* deep breath and think "okay. This is *not* that painful so I can't think. I can overcome the pain. At least for now. It can't kill me and it *will* go away eventually. I can cope with it for now and I won't give in." and then I just blank the pain. I can keep that up until the pain gets so bad I can't think straight. But it can get me through the day (if the pain's not too bad) or through a couple of hours if it's pretty bad.

I've tried the icepack/heatpack. But the oxygen treatment is out as I don't have access to it.

Also, the water treatment is a bit beyond me. I've tried it, but I just can't drink that much water!
