That is wise and just keep what I told you in case you want to try that path in the future. Good luck to you.

I have soreness on both sides so I cannot sleep except in recliner. The problem is inflammation which really hurts. I find green tea and turmeric helps.

Sat, Feb 1 6:00pm · Does Back Pain ever Get Better? in Chronic Pain

I have suffered with back pain for eight years. I’ve given everything a good try. CBD helped for a while but then that didn’t work any more. I had surgery in 2014 and that lasted about a year of no pain. I have scoliosis, spinal stenosis, neuropathy and arthritis. I’m 86 and healthy in every other way. I am the caregiver for my husband who has Alzheimer’s so lots going on.
I decided to do other types of pain research and as I said in my message this morning, I had often heard that the pain was the work of your brain, not really the location of the pain. I found a site and there are more than just this one, but I chose one called The information makes a lot of sense. It is probably not for everyone as you have to be willing to put the time and effort into it. Don’t get discouraged because you have to do the work. No magic pill to help instantly, etc. It’s worth a try. I love it and feel some better already. I have more to do but I’m willing to go on as long as it takes.

Sat, Feb 1 1:15pm · Does Back Pain ever Get Better? in Chronic Pain

It has become obvious to me after reading numerous (hundreds) messages about pain, the same complaint over and over and everyone spinning their wheels looking for that magic bullet (pill) that will end their pain, that there is NO pill. It’s time to research other alternatives and it will take work and commitment on your part. Since I have heard over time that pain comes from your brain and not the actual area we all say hurts, I decided to look into this new path. I am excited about my findings.

Tue, Jan 28 3:37pm · gabapentin causing muscle pain and cramps in Chronic Pain

I took Gabapentin for quite a while and had my doctor up the dosage. You go on it in steps and come down off of it in steps. The higher dose made my breathing difficult and I called my doctor about it. She had me come down off of it and then I decided to go off completely. I don’t think it ever really helped me. I took CBD for a while with good results for my pain issues but that didn’t last. I’ve tried everything and now the last and final is going to be meditation. This is something that makes a lot of sense. I was on oxycodone for a couple of years and that worked great but you have to up the dosage every few months and of course that eventually kills you one way or another.

Look at a meditation site. People have had good results. Doesn’t work for everyone but worth a good try. I am on, Just started last week and am taking it slowly so as to understand throughly. Good luck and let me know.

Mon, Jan 27 9:12am · Pudendal Nerve Entrapment/Neuropathy/Damage in Chronic Pain

I have tried everything for my pain issues with no help. I am now giving meditation a try. It is not for everyone 100% but has helped many which is more than you can say for any of the pain sufferers writing in hoping for that magic pill or whatever. I am on the site called, There are other many sites you can try but I’m impressed with this one. Give meditation a try. What can it hurt. Nothing else works.

Dec 16, 2019 · Intractable Pain (IP) Doctors in Neuropathy

For those of us with pain, there is no help. After reading 60 some posts, I never read one that mentioned if anyone has gone to the Mayo Clinic seeking help. My husband and I went to Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ. for years until we moved too far away and unable to travel that far. I love Mayo and all the doctors there. I had my knee replacements there 20 years ago and still no problems. I can’t help but wonder what Mayo has to offer. There are people with worse problems than us with pain issues but many with pain are young and could be productive in so many ways if not for pain.
