Nov 21, 2016 · Chronic Pain members - Welcome, please introduce yourself in Chronic Pain

Hello Lari, I am so sorry to hear about your pain. What is “tbis?” No matter what causes it friends don’t always understand our pain and we don’t want to be a burden. I can’t take my grandchildren 100 miles up the highway to the butterfly exhibit because sitting in the car can be unbearable. Although my family is kind there are times I feel they don’t believe me. I have neuropathy which is the result of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome which went untreated for years. Fortunately my husband has stuck with me “for better or worse, and in sickness and in health.” I love him and he loves me and this is what gets us through the days. Have a heart to heart talk with your husband. If you can get him on your side things will be much better.
Additionally, if you have a good pain doctor he/she understands that fibromyalgia is the real thing. Nerve and muscle pain can take away your life. Good luck. I am sending positive thoughts your way!

I have peripheral neuropathy in my arm due to Thoracic Outlet Syndrome which went untreated for for whole life. (II was 56 at the time of surgery) It was not diagnosed because the symptoms did not include the usual suspects. A smart pain doctor did a very thorough eval and ordered an MRA that proved the veins, nerves and arteries were pinched between the first rib and clavicle. With no blood flow the nerves were forever damaged and I remain in continuous pain. My pain clinic is insisting I reduce my medication so I hurt a lot and can’t type any more at this time. Be back later though.
