    Hi @Shazzyf69 welcome to the community.

    I am sorry to hear you're in pain. Have you contacted your GP to update them about the pain you are in?
    Could you tell us a bit more and I am sure some of our members may be able to support you.

    Hi @Shazzyf69, and welcome!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your pain. Many of our members will most likely be able to empathise, and you may be interested in joining in our other pain discussions. As Antonia says, do consider updating your GP as they may be able to refer you on for further help. Perhaps it could be worth looking into a pain clinic referral?

    If you find you're having difficulty managing your pain, ask your GP for a referral to a specialist pain clinic.

    Pain clinics offer a wide range of treatments and support. They aim to support you in developing self-help skills to control and relieve your pain.
