I'm not sure I have a genuine solution for you, but I can understand. I've been having a real issue with kidney stone pain lately, and recently had an operation. The post-op pain was horrible, making me waffle between not wanting to eat at all, to wanting to eat everything in sight, just to somehow 'numb' the pain.
No, it doesn't work - either way.
My only suggestion is to get items like carrot sticks, snow peas, radishes, zucchini wedges, and other veggies that are low in calories, but take time to consume, and mindfully eat them, instead of grabbing the first non-nutritional thing at hand.
Best wishes in overcoming your pains and continuing on your journey to health

I've been doing great with both exercise and nutrition until the last few days. Back and joint pain is always an issue, but I've been able to keep it from getting too bad to exercise by doing special back exercises that keep the pain manageable. But the last few days have been so bad, I've not been able to exercise, and I find myself overeating at the same time. Bad combination! I don't want to gain back the weight I have already lost. I want to keep on losing. I think the over-eating is from frustration, but I don't know how to overcome it while I'm feeling so bad. Any suggestions?
The Lord upholds all who fall, and raises up all who are bowed down. Psalm 145:14
A monk was once asked: What do you do there in the monastery? He replied: We fall and get up, fall and get up, fall and get up again. - Tito Colliander
The Jesus Prayer helps to lift the whole life, body and soul, to a level where . . . the world is sought and known in the beauty of God, not God in the beauty of the world. - Mother Maria of Normanby
