Almost all of my life I have experienced pain throughout my body. Doctors told my parents I had childhood arthritis (don't have). Told I was a nervous child because of the IBS issues. About the last 20 years have grown increasingly worse. I'm not diabetic but experience intense pain in my feet. But I experience that same pain all over my body. I feel as if I'm being pricked by thousands of needles. Currently taking Gabapentin but believe now it just makes me feel worse. Doctor wants me off Xanex and Tramadol. He put me back on antidepressants but that just seemed to cause greater anxiety. So I stopped taking them. I have tried eliminating med's that don't work. I don't sleep well at all even though I take OTC sleep aide's. Still trying to maintain so I can go to work. It is a horrible struggle. I have tried to get in to see a specialist such as a Rheumatologist or a Neurologist. But they won't see me saying my regular doctor can treat me. I'm desperate for help. The best I can do is soak in a tub of water. But it's hard to sleep like that. Water gets cold. I need help bad. I'm almost 63 and just don't see much hope on the horizon. Any suggestions is appreciated.
