Sat, Feb 29 1:10pm · Has anyone been diagnosed with Abdominal Wall Pain in Chronic Pain

Rritam, You might be interested in this article on ACNES and neurotomy, the research though was done in the Netherlands: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5916540/ . Maybe the main researcher does have connections with people in the US in that field.

Mayo gets a lot of requests, and it isn't that easy to have them accept you for treatment. If I were in your shoes, I would try again and at the same time have a referral letter maybe by someone that treated you with that diagnosis, and request a second opinion about the diagnosis and treatment options. Best wishes!

The orange kind is most likely bile. You should talk to a GI doc.

Hi Sherry, Even if you have had your gallbladder removed your liver could still make gallbladder stones, that then get stuck in the liver
ducts. This recently happened to a friend of mine. He had really bad pain now and then for several years, then it got very bad, and he went to the ER, where they did CTs etc, and found the gallstones. They scheduled surgery and removed them. He is fine now. So maybe that is something to check out…

Your sugars are higher in the morning even when you do not eat because your liver is releasing glycogen stores because it thinks you need more energy. Some people recommend a small snack at bedtime (like a couple crackers with a little bit of cheese). It is not clear what controls or triggers this. It seems to me that when I eat more healthy my morning blood sugars are better… but not always. It seems you are doing very well though!

The Cleveland Clinic has a pain rehabilitation program too. https://my.clevelandclinic.org/departments/neurological/depts/neurological-restoration/chronic-pain-rehab-program Maybe you need a combination of approaches?

It is so good you got yourself off the meds. Have you tried a pain rehabilitation program? A friend of mine went through Mayo's three-week program and increased his quality of life quite a bit, enabling him to even travel etc. It is worth trying this if your insurance covers it. Mayo has a 2-day program also (though if it was possible, I'd sure prefer the 3-week one).

Mar 10, 2018 · Do you meditate? And does it help? in Chronic Pain

You might start with looking at Dr Jon Kabat-Zin materials at https://www.mindfulnesscds.com/ . There are also live MBSR (Mindfulness-based stress reduction) workshops many places, and this might be the best way to start. Also, though it may be good to consult your doctor about your depression-anxiety –see if medication might help you pursue other forms of treatment such as meditation. best wishes!
