Welcome to the HealingWell CP Forum! I am sorry that your here, and in pain, but am glad you found us! I don't think you could have found a better place to come if you are having problems with pain! We are not Doctors and we sure can't fix you, but we can listen and support you and let you know that you are not alone with your pain! Sometimes that alone is a real comfort!
Are you seeing a Pain Specialist, or have anybody helping you manage your pain? That would be my first recommendation, is to talk with your doctor and request a referral to a pain clinic, and see what they can do for you, to help you get your pain under control! There are other things you can do and I am sure that the other people here at this forum will be chiming in an giving you many other helpfull suggestions! We have a Great group of people here, I am glad your here to join us, and hope that you will stay around , and be part of our family!
