I HAVE CRPS (COMPLEX REGIONAL PAIN SYNDROME). MOST PEOPLE HAVE IT EITHER IN THEIR FEET OR LEG OR ARM, BUT I HAVE IT IN MY FACE. IT CAUSES INTENSE BURNING DEEP INSIDE MY EARS LIKE BATTER ACID IS BEING POURED INTO THEM. THE PAIN IS CONSTANT. IT STARTED ON THE LEFT SIDE AND NOW IT HAS SPREAD TO BOTH SIDES. IT ALSO AFFECTS MY LOWER GUMS AS WELL. SEEMS THERE'S A NERVE THAT GOES FROM THE EAR TO THE GUMLINE. I GO TO A PAIN CLINIC AND HAVE HAD SEVERAL NERVE BLOCKS DONE TO HEAL THE DAMAGE BUT THEY TOLD ME IT WOULD HEAL QUICKER/BETTER IF I DIDN'T SMOKE. NOW EVERY TIME I INHALE, I THINK ABOUT THAT. BUT WHAT DO I DO....LIGHT UP ANOTHER ONE. IT'S THE ADDICTION I TELL YOU. IT RELAXES ME, WHEN IT REALITY ACCORDING TO THEM IT ACTUALLY RAISES MY PAIN LEVEL???? WHAT TO DO? JUST WANTED TO SHARE MY STORY. IT'S TOUGH WHEN YOU HAVE NO DESIRE TO QUIT YET YOU HURT SO BAD AND YOU WANNA GET BETTER. IT JUST MAKES NO SENSE. PLEASE PRAY FOR THE DESIRE TO QUIT. I NEED TO FOR MY OWN HEALTH AND I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT JUST MY LUNGS EITHER. HUGS TO YOU ALL AND THANKS FOR BEING HERE!!
