unresolved chronic pain
Hi, so I'm new to this. It's kind of a last resort. I've been in pain for the past year. 24/7 widespread pain. I've been to doctors, rheumatologists, physios, had accupunture, massages and have been on numerous medications and nothing seems to numb it!! I really can't stand being in this much pain any longer. I'm 21 years old and I've been told so many times that I'm just going to have to learn how to cope with the pain. It's getting to the point now where I can't stand it anymore. I have such bad back/ neck pain, it gives me headaches, my muscles are constantly burning/ aching and sending sharp pains all over my body, I cant sleep properly, im so depressed, and sometimes even my skin is too painfull to touch. The past month I've had three family members pass away and I lost a close frind of mine and I'm about to sit my finals this month. I'm just wondering whether anyone at all has any advice on helping with this stress and pain!?
and it broke skin and thing is I think it is still in the sole of my foot....I want the podiatrist to take it out if they can dig it out of my foot....ugg I know this is going to hurt,...hopefully he uses some lidocaine on it and numbs my foot before digging in that hole...minor surgery whatever....I just feel there is something sharp inside the sole of my foot....plus may talk to him about ankle...
end up at the top of this group list? Weird shit folks...weird shit...
I left my hometown over two years ago and moved to NM for a job. I knew nobody here and now my family is 1600 miles away. Since I work, I can't just go home anytime I want to. In this process, I have become extremely lonely, even when I do things with new friends, I come home feeling depressed. I have never lived alone before and this experience has been excruciating.
Hi-After 8 years on Prozac, lithium and sodium valproate my doc has agreed that I can try reducing the prozac form 60mg daily to 60 then 30 then 60 etc.I was prescribed it after a long depression I couldnt shake after to much intense changes. I dont really know I am bipolar-I go up more than down. Since this small reduction I am feeling a bit uppish but not so I cant work etc.My aim is to come...
