Pain getting worse
Hi i'm new to discussion sites but felt i had to talk about how my condition is effecting me and how others manage their pain, as i feel at a loss with how to cope at the moment.
I have degenerative discs, spondilosis, fibromyagia,under active thyroid,Raynauds syndrome and cosachondritis!! What a wreck for a 41 year old!!
My problems started after the birth of my 1st son (I have 2, the olest 16yrs and my youngest has autistic spectrum disorder - he's 12yrs) which is 16 years ago, and i feel as if no one listened that much when i first started experiencing pain, its been so drawn out and hard work getting doctors to understand the extent of the pain and when they do you get more and more strong pain killers but no real understanding of how this is impacting on your whole life and no help.
My pain has become so widespread and this last few months the pain in the bottom of my spine has increased ten fold i'm pretty good with managing pain but this is really hard to deal with its so severe. I have been refered to a pain mangement program which i have to wait 3 months for!
What i'm wondering has anyone experienced the increase of severe pain in the bottom of the spine like i have and has anyone found the pain management programs helped in any way? Would like to know how others manage their pain.
