    Hello @MissShirley and welcome to the community. We're very glad to have you with us, but sorry to hear you are in so much pain. As I usually say to new members, you are in a safe place here and are among friends. Don't be shy of telling us anything or asking us anything, if it might in any way help us to help you.

    We do have a forum/category about 'Dealing with chronic pain', here, https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/chronicpain and you might like to have a look at - and even perhaps join in - some of the discussions taking place there.

    Here, listening, and hoping very much to be of help to you,
