Thanks. I am currently in PT. It has been 4 months and I am no better. They are working under the concept of central sensitivity. I am ready to stop going. Mayo has a video about central sensitivity but do not know any more about it. I live in Ohio and do not have money for overnight accomidations. Not sure where to turn or to just take a break from every treatment.
Thanks for your suggestions. I use all the things you do and get short term results. I ice several times a day, moist heat and baths, and stretching, and changing positions. Doctors say sorry I don’t know what is wrong, can’t help you. I had an OT tell me she could no longer treat me because she was not comfortable due to nerve issues in my neck and at the same time others say there is nothing wrong, or it shouldn’t hurt that much. Very frustrating.
Yes. I have seen rheumatologist and have extremely high ANA but al other blood work comes out ok. I see this doctor next month and if all tests come back normal she said I don’t have to come back. Lupus came back negative as all the other testing. I have a lot of inflammation also just no answers.
I have had chronic pain in my neck and back for 3 1/2 years. I have been to 14 different doctors, providers, and therapy. Currently I go to occupational therapy for myofascial release and physical therapy for central sensitivity. The occupational therapy helps some. But I am questioning the physical therapy for almost 4 months I am no better off than when I started. I have pain when I sit, when I stand, and when I walk. I rotate my position every 30 minutes so I don’t get more pain. I am at the point where enough is enough. With no answers and continued pain. I had been prescribed opioid pain meds and have been taking them for three years. I did not want to get addicted or overdose so I wean myself off of them. It was hard and lots of with drawl but I am currently on no pain meds. I had been taking 12 different medicines every day. The pain meds made it worse. I am not sure where to go from here but I’m struggling with driving to appointments and the gas in my car since I’ve had no income for three and half years. I also have fiber myalgia, IBS, headaches, short term memory problems that have been documented, Arthritis, hip pain, depression, and anxiety. I have gained a lot of weight due to not working or moving over the past 3 1/2 years. Any thoughts, recommendations, or support would be welcome.
I am so sorry you were in this dark place. I have been through this many times in my life. Hang on to God as he hangs on to you. Thank you for reaching out and letting me know where you’re at. That is one of the hardest things and give yourself a pat on the back for this. Ask that the light of Jesus be shined on you. Talk with your doctor and or counselor and be honest as you can. At times like this I ask that others touch base with me to make sure I get through the day. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
