With the graying of America there will be an upsurge in testing and finding of new pain suppressors.

I have keloid scaring and that makes joint replacement questionable. With my kind of scarring the scars build up in in big red lumpy , itchy areas. Does anyone here have that kind of scarring if so have you had a joint replacement?

Is there a way to post without it being a reply?

I agree with you. We all experience pain differently. Perhaps having a short description of pains and letting you choose which one feels like what you have. People who talk about their pain to family and friends are seen as negative and self centered. It is so wonderful to have a group you can talk to about your pain without feeling over overbearing; without feeling judged.

I have a very good doctor who really listens to me. Objectively I know my pain is bad. I literally scream when trying to pull up pants. I have to bend over so my husband can pull them up. Night is really bad with my shoulder hurting so bad I cry. Emotionally I feel really good. Doesn’t sound possible but for me it is true. After trying several antidepressants I’ve found one that is really working (thank god). I’ve been taking it for 2 years now and it is still working well. I am able to really enjoy cruises and other travel and we do it alot. I almost feel guilty posting here because mentally I feel so good.

I know the guilt of asking, asking,asking. If I try to do it myself he gets upset with me that I might hurt myself. I also take antidepressants When my depression began, I thought I had heart problems. I was tired all the time and could hardly get myself home from work crying all the time. I explained to the doctor and he immediately told. me I was depressed. Sure enough about a week after starting the medication I began to feel normal again. I actually feel mentally very good. I have a great husband, get to travel, to great children, a cute dog lol. Mental and physical feelings are opposite for me.

This really scares me. Please let compassion and common sense prevail.

I believe perception of pain depends somewhat on your age. As I’v aged (75) I tend to let pain take its course thinking “Oh just another pain.” instead of going to the doctor for new pains. My son( 50) gets upset about it and wants me to go to the dr. right away. Because anew pain he experiences gets his attention and he’s not used to just accepting it along with other pains.
