Sun, Sep 1 3:41pm · Feeling at my wits end with Chronic Pain and Fibromyalgia in Chronic Pain

I really liked your comments about pain. I myself never experienced real bad pain, even though I had 4 children, 2 c-sectioned, in 8 years and some backpack, but the real pain came
now in the last 10 years. Now I know, what it does to you. I withdraw from social functions, have no pleasure in life, and try to get off opioids, because they do help, but I do not like the dependency, which comes with it. But the pain is there almost 24 hours, and I have become more housebound and now even in bed more hours. I have arthritis in my spine, headaches ,
had an AVM operated with open brain surgery, and other bone problems.
Tried to cut down on the Opioids, but it is hard, after several years. I am 73 yrs old, and thought my hubby and I had some good years left.
Now the depression has started. Any suggestions?

Dec 16, 2018 · Undiagnosed auto immune disease in Autoimmune Diseases

I think, I can feel for you, because I was in the same situation. Looked like a picture of health. But donˋt let that fool you. After going thru this period of autoimmune desease symptoms, 7 years, you can tell now, that I am going thru this pain, IBS. Crohns and nausea, headaches, dizziness etc has taken its toll. On top, I became dependent on opioids for back and neck pain. Became isolated from friends and family, because I did not want them to see, what pain I had to endure. Now I have anxiety and depression, and you would not want to see me now. I think, the autoimmune problems are that your own body attacks you, via brain and digestive problems. Does anybody went thru this after years of golden health and happiness?

This is really important to know. Doctors should also made aware of this, when prescribing it for diverticulitis. What is the choice then? I am going thru something of this sort, and wondering, what to do or not to do?

I had open brain surgery for an AVL and they put two titanium clips in. Since then, I had problems with the digestive tract, pain in the cervical spine, headaches, chronic pain. All the tests they did came back positive. Now my pain management doctor thinks it might be my own immune system, that is attacking my body. Has anybody had experience with that?

Oct 7, 2018 · Schwannomatosis in Brain & Nervous System

Yes, I got the name of an outfit, that does that and I needed the info for my constant problem with new meds. I could not tolerate most of them and mean meds for ulcers, depression and antibiotics. So I received the website for a gene testing lab. They gave me names of doctors, who were near me and would do the swap of the inside of my mouth. But everyone I contacted did not do it anymore. So they suggested for me to ask my GP, if he would be interested in learning to that. But his answer was negative.
The end result was, I wasted my time with this one. The name was genesight.It really wou Ltd have benefitted me and Medicare was paying for it.

Dear keys, What good advise you had. I will adhere to some of it, since I am still believing in doctors giving me the right advise. Though I am finding out, sometimes there are other things envolved. So I am looking for some new advise and you know what, it might be what I need. So thank you again.

I was told, that I would benefit from that. But I opted out, because I felt, that the doctor just wanted to make money!
He does have a contract hanging on his walls with a Pharmaceutical firm.
But that was years ago, and I am fine with my heart.
