I need any and all tips on dealing with chronic severe pain. My back has been hurting for a while, but the last three weeks the pains has been super intense. I can hardly talk to anyone with out either snapping at them and/or crying. I'm frustrated with such limited mobility. I'm in a lot of pain and it's not going away or getting better. I've been going from doctor to doctor trying to get a diagnosis and in the meanwhile no one will give me any pain killers. I can't sit up for more then an hour (on a good day) and I start school Monday. I don't know how I'm going to make it through classes. I've been upsetting my parents by being bitchy and upsetting myself by crying. I'm desperate for some way to help control the pain, or at least deal with it better. I spend most of my days on my back (the only position that doesn't cause pain) except for 30-60 minutes when I get in the pool and exercise. I'm in physical therapy but all that does is make it hurt more.
