Are there any discussions for chronic pain?
Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Chronic Pain group.
Yes I see that people around you and maybe ever don’t understand pain. They
don’t have it so they don’t get it. It’s real and you deserve to be
validated and find relief. I suggest you go to the American Choronic Pain
association on the Internet. They understand. You will find validation
there. They will tell you you have a right to pain relief. Nothing takes
all the pain. No one should be suffering because people don’t understand
chronic pain and I don’t know why they think it’s up to them to say. At
your age what do they think tour up to no good. I would to seek with some
people because they just guess and think it’s true. The American Pain
Association has many different tools to help with pain and the latest
information. They can tell you about other associations to get info from.
They really helped me so much. I hope you look them up and use them. Don’t
let any one tell you what you and your body knows, they don’t know that.
Good look. You can do it. Keep with us let’s talk it’s great too.
To suebreen 54 – I have gone to to pain dr/anesthesiologists for over 20
years. Epidural shots of many locations have not worked on me.

Right before I was diagnosed with degenerative disc desease I went to a
chiropractor that I liked and Then in my early 20s I was diagnosed wi
degenerative disc desease and I went to physical therapy and chiropractor
back and for and then my cervical spine was to bad for chiropractic care.
I was in physical therapy and went to college and to work and my discs got
worse anyway. So my treatments changed. I use a lot of different things for
pain relief. I worked for 23 years in pain. You can get use to pain. You
probably have a high pain tolerance now. Study your desease or your
injuries and all the treatments and ask your Dr of all treatments
possible. Hope will help positivity knowing you can do something someday
even if it’s be part robot in the future because you have to have a sense
of humor and watch comics and funny movies good luck and keep writing on
What type pain do you have. Is it Diabetic peripheral neuropathy pain or
Fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis.
I am so sorry for all your problems. My husband is a great help to me but
without him, I would have to move to an assisted living place. You are so
right. When you look good, which I try to most of the time, people don’t
realize how much pain you are in. People always say, “How are you?” but
do they really want to know? No, you are supposed to say “good” because
otherwise you are dubbed a complainer.
Thank you. I will definitely go to the American Chronic Pain
Association’s web site.
I checked Am Chronic Pain Assoc and found that I am a member, but they don’t send a newletter so I will have to get them too.

Likewise with me – nothing has worked through the years.
Well, at least I know I’m not alone, unfortunately. Is there anything
that does help your pain?
