I am having an extreme pain flareup right now, and I just feel like I cannot take it anymore. I have had constant and severe pain for 8.5 years, and I am totally burning out from it. I'm only 27. Being that I've faced this beast for so long, I have a whole arsenal of strategies- everything from heat to meds (which I only take when in extreme pain like tonight) to positive thinking to Tp massage (from my hubby). I tried Botox last Thursday, and have had an increased flare up since the 10 very painful injecions. I lost my career as a Physio 7 months ago, as I cannot do the physical aspect of the job, and am hoping to take some correspondance courses for a new (home based and very part time) career in the fall. But, right now, none of these solutions seems good enough anymore. I feel like I cannot even bear one more minute of pain. I do not have depression- I've worked really really really hard to stay positive despite the pain- but right now I feel like I've hit the end of my rope. I cannot take it any longer. Help!
