I've been in cronic pain for around 20yrs now. I am sick of it i would give anything to be rid of it! Im not sure what its called or i've forgotten over the years but my spine is crumbling, seven vertbraes  have gone so far and the rest will surely follow. So this is me don't go out unless to the drs or to hospital appointments. So is there any comments or opinions or any questions?

    Hi @Qu33ni3, and welcome to the community!

    So sorry to hear that you're living with chronic pain. Are you under a pain clinic at the moment? We have plenty of other community members who have chronic pain, so do feel free to get involved with our discussions and join in. You may also be interested in the Pain Concern Helpline if you'd like to talk to somebody about your experiences.

    I hear you. 10 years for me. Pain Management is really great.

    I went on a 6 weeks course with the pain management programme but i got nowhere apart from a numb bum and 2 parking tickets. If you live in staffordshire or Birmingham area we could meet up

    I've had pain for around twenty years that has been ever increasing.
    The last ten years it's become quite awful.
    I have benign tumours on my spinal cord that cause me a lot of problems with pain and mobility and dropping things.
    For the last three months I haven't been able to open a packet of crisps because the fingers on my right hand have stopped working properly.
    Will they start again?
    Who knows.
    I'm on very strong opiates which help but they don't get rid of all the pain all the time that's just not possible.
    I'm going out the house less and less but I can still drive most days.
    Recently had a medical driving assessment and flew through that but at th end of the test they said in three years time they'll be calling me back and expect to see me driving an automatic.
    Not a lot I can say about reliving your pain unfortunately.
    I have been to Holland and Barrett and purchased CBD oil.
    Not noticed any increased pain relief yet but it does help me sleep at night.
    I can tell because the quilt is in the same spot in the morning and I've hardly moved.
