I am in pain 24/7. This is not the usual aches and pains/headaches. I have 'nerve pain' that radiates from the back of my neck all the way to my tailbone, and often down both my legs.
Ive done physcial therapy and do some exercises at home, but Im really having a tough time coping with this pain. I was going to counseling but I cant really do that anymore.
I take Tylenol #4 and Neurontin for the pain as well as Flexiril. Ive had 6 steroid shots.
So, if there is anyone who experiences chronic pain Id like to know what has or hasnt worked for you, including any foods, books, that helped you out.
I found the American chronic Pain Association's website through talking with a Medicare rep. and today i got a really nice workbook from them in the mail.
The pain has gotten so severe that I have blackouts and have no memory of what happened. Im seeing a new neurologist for MS next month.
