I seem to be able to mentally erase the pain with my conscious mind while in bed at night thinking about each painful joint at a time. It takes some effort to do this but when all the pain is gone I feel giddy inside like I am am exposed and vulnerable without the pain. It's like floating in mid air. I find that as my work day progresses so does my pain. I don't have the time and quiet to consciously eliminate the pain. Anybody with similar experiences?
