I am writing this in desperation that someone out there knows what we are going through. My son was finally diagnosed with HMS after over a year of doctors telling us his incredible pain was behavioral or teething related. Finally an answer, and we thought things would get better. We are having a terrible time getting his pain under control. We started with naproxen once daily, it seemed to decrease but not much else. next we tried Mobic - no help at all! Back to naproxen (even though it gave him night terrors) but now twice a day at the highest dose possible for his weight. He is STILL having breakthrough pain and is too young for the kind of PT he needs but I have an evaluation apt set up anyway. I am at a loss. I held him last night after his meds as he whimpered and writhed in pain, drying "mommy my arms hurt (wrists)" over and over as he sobbed. I put little heat packs on him and he likes that. I just sat and held him and cried right along with him; its miserable!! Anyone out there with advise if your child was diagnosed this young and you can share your experiences of what helped and what didn't I would be so grateful! I feel so helpless!!

My husband is emotionally abusive, distant, unsupportive depending on the day. I'm completely sick of this lackluster marriage of convenience I have going with him. If there's love on his part, I do not feel it at all. He talks over me, doesnt listen, argues, gets defensive even when I bring up things in the calmest way. Cant wait to move on from this 'relationship', which died long ago. There...
My husband recently accepted the fact that he was anxiety and said hes had it for many years......should he see someone to start with and figure out what caused it to begin with?? Any help is appreciated thankyou.
