What can I do for my 8 yr old daughter with sickle cell disease to make her more comfortable at home during a pain crisis? She doesn't even seem to want to get out of bed dôme data. I'm so tired of going back forth to the hospital with no resolution but pain meds. I'm lonrly . I'm getting tired. I have to go to sleep. I do love you ry pie! Please don't ever think that I stopped. I dont ever (please, no rude comments) want her using the morphine and hydrocodone unless the pain is really bad. She already enjoys taking meds a little too much and I think that she may be at the very young stages of addiction , or even too just early for myself. Addiction runs through her veins on both sides of her family - what some alternatives to the pain medications?
