Distal Sensory Axonal Peripheral Neuropathy

edited March 2020 in Dealing with chronic pain
I have Distal Sensory Axonal Peripheal Neuropathy combined with Fibromyalgia. I am new to this forum and I have been struggling with constant pain and mobility difficulties and chronic fatigue. I had my first episode about a month ago which was far worse than the difficulties that I have every day. I couldnt do anything at all and it took me about a week to get back to "Normal" a lowered level of pain and mobility issues. Every day I have no days off of pain fatigue and weakness in my limbs but I am trying not to let it effect my daily routine. I have a wife and three year old daughter. I feel as though I am failing to be a husband and a father when its bad. I do mindfulness meditation which helps a little and #lost my train of thought so I will leave it there. Just to say hi God bless you.

    Hello @Alun76 Welcome to the community its nice to see new people here. 

    Thank you for sharing your story with us, what you are feeling is normal when faced with such illness or disability. When I became disabled overnight my main concern was the effect it would have on my son's life, and that I would fail him as a mum that could no longer take him places, and that he would to a certain extent have to care for me.

    Have a good look round the site there are lots of other members who suffer with similar conditions.

    Is there anything we can help you with today, if not feel free to post and join in any discussions
