I suffer terribly from chronic pain. I have frequent migraines, and neuropathy. I don't know if it's the virus or the meds; no one can tell me. I know that my hands sting, burn, throb and ache. I lost complete use of my right hand for about 6 mos, but thankfully I regained use, but the pain is still there. It wakes me in the night, and now my toes are beginning like my fingers did. I don't know what I'm going to do if they get as bad as my hands. The pain is excruciating. I see a pain mgmt dr, and take a strong pain medication, but the dr seem apathetic toward my situation, in fact almost everyone does. I know sometimes I may be anxious about my health, but I'm no hypercondriac. Am I the only one suffering, or can anyone else identify? Please?

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
