    hi catherinerichards

    Yes there is help but you will probably have to fight for what works for you.
    Work with your GP, try and get a referal to a pain management clinic

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    To be honest since having injections it's far worsened my pain not sure what they have done but even every strong pain killer 15 mg of morphine patches I can not cope with any thing two mins standing walking from one room to the other movement choirs all unbearable pain  not sure what to do next but can't carry on every day unbearable complete ly disabled an already injured body.. felt dismissed for having touch pain for Dr to cope with put on dealing with ur 0ain program was.nt like this before course of pain clinic  injections  in spine

    Hi Cathie, 

    It's hard, really hard a life with chronic pain. But it is doable and it is a life worth fighting for. 

    So sorry to hear, pain is so **** isn't it.. 

    It sounds life you're at the start of it all and there is help out there. 

    I can't stand more than 10 seconds or so and am now using a wheelchair outside the house. At the time (4 years ago) it felt like a big step but it has given me a lot more back. When I sit I have less pain so using wheelchair has made some things much better. 

    It's taking time...  But gradually am making my home easier to live in. 

    It's F ING hard. And I've hard many times where I don't understand why life is like this.. ..But there have also been amazing times I'm glad to have been here for. 

    Medication..  Took me about 2 years to sort out my basic medication.... And I recently adapted it again. But again, worth the effort. 

    Did you get pain clinic referral?

    I almost passed out with fatigue and pain today after being out on essential excursions on my feet. Try my best to do one activity per day but sometimes it’s more because I can’t change it. It really has a knock on effect.
