    Heya,


    So it seems to completely depend pain wise, affects everyone differently. I was on a morphine drip and ICU with it for 4 months, but have now not had an attack for over 8 years. However, lots of people I know are able to continue well with only some pain and can take paracetamol.

    Hope this gives some reassurance :)
