Is Anyone Else Resistant To Pain Medications?

Is Anyone Else Resistant To Pain Medications?

I've had multiple pain symptoms and chronic pain issues for almost 20 years. Even as a teenager, things like hydrocodone and Flexeril would take the edge off of severe pain but never got rid of it. Now at 34 ibuprofen is completely useless, Oxycodone only makes me loopy, and the only medicines that work require an ER visit.
Is this normal with lupus or is my body just jacked from so many medications over so many years?

Water Softener, Whole House Filtration And Whole House Humidifier

Water Softener, Whole House Filtration And Whole House Humidifier

Does anyone find that having a water softer, whole house filtration system and whole house humidifier help with your skin and hair? I visited my father for a week and he has all three and my hair was so soft. My skin felt better. No flare ups. I came home now my hair is dry and brittle and I have had face flare ups since. I have 2 humidifiers running by me all night but not a whole house one. If you do which softener and filtration system do you suggest. Does it help you?
