Mar 4, 2018 · Chronic Pain members - Welcome, please introduce yourself in Spine Health

Thanks, John as Much will definitely watch the link to the video you sent. I’ve also heard that Hyperbaric Oxygen can help immensely but the only place that I found that has it is U.T. Hospital in Knoxville, Tn. Close to where I live.
The town where I live doesn’t do much as far as if I lived close to a teaching hospital like Johns Hopkins or Duke!
Best of luck to you and let me know what more you find out about it!

Hi, my name is Terry and I was diagnosed when I turned 38 although I think I’ve had it longer. I’m 66 now and had to give up a job I loved which was being a nurse! The pain is 24/7/365 with no good days in between. It has always been excruciating since I’ve had it! I’ve never had even 1 day of the pain letting up…. none!
I would be interested to know what people do for their pain. Currently I’m using a heating pad, electric blanket and ice packs along with compression gloves for my R.A.and creams to rub on. My husband even rigged our SUV so I can have my heating pad and blanket in the vehicle!
I have several different autoimmune diseases and Fibromyalgia is another along with Diabetes and Heart Disease. I’m just a mess or my body is for sure.
I will continue to read your texts and answer when I can!
Best of luck to all!

Thanks to all. and yes @azjulie I have found that by rubbing a compound the Dr., gave me and wearing any kind of glove but the ones I have all the fingers are out and the rest of the glove covers the hand. It does help a little bit.

I have peripheral neuropathy from diabetes in my hands and feet all the way to the calves of both legs. It’s getting to be so hard to deal with that painnas it shooting pains and it feels like someone is jamming needles in my hands all the time. They burn also. I’m allergic to most meds and have recently became allergic to steroids!
If anyone has any suggestions I would be happy to hear them and from the neuropathy I drop lots of stuff!
