Frustrated & Done
I have had chronic pain in my neck and back for 3 1/2 years. I have been to 14 different doctors, providers, and therapy. Currently I go to occupational therapy for myofascial release and physical therapy for central sensitivity. The occupational therapy helps some. But I am questioning the physical therapy for almost 4 months I am no better off than when I started. I have pain when I sit, when I stand, and when I walk. I rotate my position every 30 minutes so I don’t get more pain. I am at the point where enough is enough. With no answers and continued pain. I had been prescribed opioid pain meds and have been taking them for three years. I did not want to get addicted or overdose so I wean myself off of them. It was hard and lots of with drawl but I am currently on no pain meds. I had been taking 12 different medicines every day. The pain meds made it worse. I am not sure where to go from here but I’m struggling with driving to appointments and the gas in my car since I’ve had no income for three and half years. I also have fiber myalgia, IBS, headaches, short term memory problems that have been documented, Arthritis, hip pain, depression, and anxiety. I have gained a lot of weight due to not working or moving over the past 3 1/2 years. Any thoughts, recommendations, or support would be welcome.
