We would like to introduce LET’s COMBAT PAIN, our non-profit initiative to promote the bridging among individuals who have as a relevant interest the study and care of patients with chronic pain.

Our intent is to develop a worldwide information exchange network, to include all the relevant stakeholders such as health care professionals, researchers, patients and families, and benefactors with the goal of promoting exchange of opinions and knowledge as well fostering support toward pain education and research for development and innovation.

Had a cervical surgery in January. Thought that would be the cure. Instead I now have chronic pain. I’m still grappling with how this could have happened and how I can live with it and still have a life. I’ve taken a leave of absence from work, because I was hardly there. I fear that I will never be able to return to my job and I love working.

I so much need the encouragement and support of others who are dealing with this. I’ve been given a number of medications that help the pain, but then cause my mind to be confused and they make my body really sick. I don’t want to spend the rest of my life in drugged misery. I feel helpless, hopeless.

I’m worried about how a lifetime of this will effect my family. I have tried massage which feels great while it’s happening, but the next day I’m wracked with pain. Water therapy helps some, but certainly not to the extent that I can lead any kind of normal life. I will be trying acupuncture next. If that doesn’t work, I don’t know what options I have left. I don’t want to be a burden to my loved ones.

Is there any research being done on this disease? There has to be something that activates it. Would love to hear from anyone that is dealing with this. Also would like to hear if anyone is able to deal with this in a way that doesn’t involve being constantly drugged.

Sleep has been okay lately. Not always, but mostly. I’m going to meet with a group of doctors in Cincinnati next month and I’m hoping for more answers! I am still trying to get my life back!
