Which group should I be in?

Posted by @untreated, Sep 21, 2016

I have chronic pain. I have had so many MRIs and X-rays that the staff know me by name when I walk in. I have also been to countless different specialists. No one can figure it out. Because of this pain, I am also sleep deprived. 2 hours in 2 or 3 nights is a luxury. So what group should I join?

Thanks

@untreated Hello Kathie: Welcome to Mayo Connect. I’m sorry to hear of your undiagnosed pain problem. How frustrating that must be for your, especially when it interferes with sleep. @colleenyoung, a moderator with Mayo Connect can probably find the right Mayo Connect Community for you. If you are comfortable doing so, please tell a little more about your pain history. Information such as how long you have had the pain, is it muscle pain or joint pain, etc. might help us connect you to the right Mayo Connect Community. Also, do you have other health issues that might contribute to the pain? The Mayo Connect community is a great place to share our stories and find encouragement and support! Best wishes. Teresa
