    Thanks for your warm welcoming  wishes... had so much fight on my hands with dwp /mental health due to chronic pain almost daily drs have been trying all sorts but nothing is touching it injections tablets I'm at my wits end with the pain I'm in my early 50s but do not want to suffer into my 70/80s ...
    I had lidocaine infusion which helped but only 6 monthly and last for about a month any suggestions cheers

    Hi @shellybelly :) and it is good to hear from you again. Can I recommend that you have a look at the 'Dealing with chronic pain' thread here https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/chronicpain, where I know you'll find many other sufferers. You can take a look at the conversations and perhaps join in - you will be made welcome.
    If this doesn't work for you, or if you have any other things that need attention, do not hesitate to be in touch.
    Here and listening,
    Richard
