Mainly a question for those of you with neuropathic pain - and especially the rest of you with CRPS/RSD -

I have problems on and off with vibrations increasing my pain, mainly depending on how badly my CRPS is flaring. I'm really noticing it today - our car needs a service and is running a little bit rough, so the engine vibrations when it was idling in traffic today were really setting me off. I'm also having problems tonight - our neighbours are throwing a party and although the music isn't loud it has a really heavy bass line on it that is sending vibrations through the ground. It's not so bad inside the house, but I can't go outside because the ground vibrations are hurting me.

Does anyone else have this problem?

I do. I have RA and vibrations make my joints ache, especially when they are already painful. I have learned that I will never attend a concert again. Paid for that for days. I decline to go on longer car trips because I can't stand to be on the road for long, which is horrible because I can't go on RV trips with my kids and my parents because I can't stand the vibration of the car all day between campsites. I have found that if I sit in a seat at church that places a piller between the soundsystem speakers and me I am more comfortable, but I find that I am poping a pain pill halfway through the service many sundays anyway.
It isn't always as bad as others, but I can get uncomfortable on short drives too, and if I am alrady in pain it can agravate it like nothing else. Other peoples car sound systems get to me too, like when they habe the base all the way up. It not only makes my joints hurt my ear drums throb and it makes my hearing short out too.
People look at me weird when I tell them that the
sound hurt, but itss the truth.
