    Pain Diary

    Dear 21tomlinson,
    Thank you for sharing the pain and agony you struggle with every day, and I think many of us can relate. I’m in the same situation as you are, and I know the feeling when you just want to give up, because nobody in the health system seems to care or understand how severe this pain really is. I’m not able to work or do anything now, and the pain has been so bad the last two weeks that I have been close to calling the hospital and ask them to either help me with the pain, or have the decency to just euthanize me.. Everyday is a struggle.. Most days i’m also waking up almost pain free. On good days I can walk around for 3-4 hours with little pain, and on bad days I can’t even wear underwear for five minutes before the pain is out of control.

    The pain we are suffering now is not going to last forever. We are both going to find the right doctor who really cares, and don’t quit searching for the source and the solution for this pain. You probably have checked out if pulsed radiofrequency can help you? I’m not sure if botox is possible in that area, but I know they inject it into the bladder muscle, for pain after hernia repair and abdominal cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome with success. In a couple of years, it will come a new medicine that is very effective against nerve pain. This medicine already exist today, but is only used against cancer.

    Keep on fighting and this pain eventually will just be one bad memory.
