Missed this thread before somehow. I have arthritis, bad joints, and a 24/7 headache since 1980. That all translates as daily pain, sometimes not so much, sometimes a lot. When my joints are giving me seven kinds of Hell, I stay out of the shop, because I figure I might make a mistake using a power tool. I do not take pain meds of any type; however I do take a daily dose of five baby aspirin for the heart - never had heart problems, and hope to never have any. Instead, for the pain, I meditate. When I was in my 20s I read a lot on various subjects, including various forms of meditation, The Third Eye, religions, and so on. Most of it I considered BS, but eventually developed my own meditation version, I think it might also include a bit of bio-feedback, evolving thru the years. Among other things, I can usually reduce my heartbeat if needed, lower my blood pressure, and other simple things. When I am at the dentist and the pain shot starts to wear off, I can usually push the pain away, but if my concentration is broken, it comes back, fast. Can't say meditation will work for you, but so far it has for me.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
