Hi everyone, Thankyou so much for you’re replies, just
talking yesterday helped & you’re comments saying “I’m not alone” helped too. I feel alittle easier knowing I’m not on my own.....With all the 18yrs of being in Chronic pain 24-7 I never felt like this, it just all hit me at once......I have got appointment to see my GP on 6th July. To check how I’m going with Citalopram, I’m hoping the side effects like Susie said will disappear & what you said too Jane taking it with food will help too. Thankyou both for your help......As you mansion Jane, I’ve been to see a pain clinic 10yrs ago but he
didn’t do anything for me, said theirs nothing can be done with you’re pain only tens machine, My GP put me on OxyContin back in 2009 from hydrocodone & paracetamol.....I did started of a low dose & work my way up to 40mgs OxyContin & started on low does of Oxynorm too, been on the same dose for 1yr now, as Cogito & You all said, maybe switch in med or increase will help.....When I see my GP I tell him about
pain meds not taking edge of like it was on my good days, bad days nothing helped.
I forgot to tell you what is wrong with me, I was born with dis
location of patella, I had to operations when I was younger,
one day 18yrs ago I knelt down, I felt a something snap in my knee & server/intense pain surge thru me, since that day I’ve been in server/Chronic pain 24-7 I also can’t bend my knee either & my knee unstable, I have to wear a knee brace. I’ve been to see specialist upon specialist & theirs nothing can be done, no surgery will help because they took things away in my
knee when I was 7/8yrs old. (They don’t this sort of op now days) I’ll be like this for rest of my life........I was also born with one leg shorter then the other & my hips are uneven, because of my knees, hips & legs I’m putting all my weight on one side, it’s left me with server/intense pain from spine to tips of my toes 24-7, my legs. ankles & feet are swollen all the time, they burn, I get also of restless legs & Cramp/spasm......Also my spine is twisted at the bottom which is painful.......I haveB ursitis in my Hip again is very pain........Recently I also found out, I’ve got Degenerative Changes (Arthritis) in my Spine (L3/4, C4/5 & L5/S1) this
is also giving chronic pain 24-7.........Back in 2005 I was diagnosed with several Fibroids, they so painful too, last year I went for Total Hysterectomy because the fibroids are so big (one of them is size of the babies head) Anyhow cutting along story short, While I was under general Anaesthetic, My Gynae
specialist picked up my womb, my heart rate dropped so fast, went into Cardiac Arrest I was resuscitated, & Op was abandoned. I’m now under heart specialist, I’ve had tested done all come back clear, now I’ve have a Loop recorder implant fitted under my skin, to find out whats going on. At the moment, I’m stuck with these painful fibroids until they’ve sorted my heart out, because of the weight of the fibroids (l look 8mtrhs pregnant) this is adding too chronic pain I’m already in.
Thankyou again everyone from bottom of my heart for
you’re replies, Thankyou for you're tips, advice & thankyou for not judging me. It means alot, you've all been so kind :)
Much love & Blessings
