I have spent the last four days with a fever hovering in the 102 to nearly 104-degree range. I found out today that the fever is due to a severe infection in my leg. After so many days with such a high fever, I have developed severe headaches unlike any I have ever experienced. I like to think of myself as a pretty stoic guy, but these headaches have reduced me to a whimpering sack of protoplasm. Nothing can so much as touch them–not any of the three over-the-counter pain relievers I have on hand, not even the Vicodin my doctor prescribed for me (which had absolutely ZERO effect). I’m at my wit’s end.
I decided to see if I could find out something about self-hypnosis for pain control, but my searches on the web have been discouraging. I put it to you, my dear friends on the SDMB: Does anyone have some effective self-hypnosis techniques to share?
