Trust me, I feel your pain. I know exactly what you are going through. I've had chronic pain for almost 4 years now and they still have not been able to diagnose me. I waited almost a year to see a pelvic pain specialist because that's what they thought I had. Then, I went through treatment for that for over two years now and my doctor just told me last week that they weren't sure what I had!!!! I couldn't believe it. I too have tried botox injections. I've been on gabapentin and am now on Lyrica. I've also been on several muscle relaxers. The pain can really be unbearable at times!!!! I totally understand what you are going through. Try to hang in there and do some deep breathing/meditation if you can. That seems to help me somewhat.
Write us back when you can to let us know how you are doing!
Hello and Welcome. I hear many people say that they have been a CP patient for years and still don't have a reason for their pain.....Mine is the opposite...I know what's causing mine and they can't do anything about it. Just give me pills and send me on my merry way. So, either way it sucks.
