edited February 2 in Dealing with chronic pain
Im sitting here feeling a bit down. I have one leg shorter than the other due to an accident when i was a baby. during my 20s i didnt really feel the pain but now im 44 im in pain pretty much everyday and night. The pain in my neck and back is really getting me down. My doctor is rubbish and doesnt understand. Does anyone out there understand what i mean? just feeling very alone at the moment.

    Hi @Gothskull sorry your in so much pain, it's not nice to have constant pain and it's hard when a Dr doesn't understand, my Dr after trying lots of different tablets told me, well it's going to happen and left it, so I know where your coming from.

    Thank you, its just so difficult to get a good doctor that understands. Hardly slept last night.

    @Gothskull if you can try a nap n the day to catch up. Try a different Dr at the practice if there are others there.

    Hi @Gothskull - & welcome to this friendly & supportive community. Chronic pain is an awful thing to deal with; I'm in pain the moment I'm upright, but at least it settles after I've laid down for a while. Is there another Dr in the practice you could try, as Sandy has mentioned? Perhaps another would be sympathetic & listen to you. :)

    I'd echo what the others have said in trying to speak to a different doctor @Gothskull. You deserve to feel understood and taken seriously.

    Is there anything you've done in the past that has relieved the pain, even if only for a short while?
