I am so sorry about
your pain experiences. Unfortunately, I and many of our other friends here in the Chronic Pain Forum of Helling Welling. For me, when my pain is extreme and medications are just not cutting it - I have found the personal meditation and meditation cds to be very helpful. I used to laugh at the idea that listening to a tape could help you manage pain and hopeless feelings. If I were you, I would continue to try and find a PM specialist or physician that could help you either by controling or solve your pain issues. But until then, consider some of the alternatives - biofeedback - relaxation tapes - breathing exercises. Anything that gets you through a long night of pain is worth a try.
Good luck and maybe some of our other members have some suggestions for you.
