When I start feeling the onset of a crisis, I take medication as soon as I can.
I like to start with my weakest painkillers first, such as paracetamol, just in case the crisis doesn’t escalate.
If the pain is becoming more intense I’ll use stronger medications like dihydrocodeine.
If it still doesn’t help I’ll use oral morphine and consider going to the hospital.
What is your routine when you feel a crisis start?
