What is it?
My answer is what isn’t it?
It’s everything that can make a person miserable and distraught. I am writing this because I deal with this everyday and so many people are affected by this and I want people to know they are not alone. I have done reading and research on the symptoms and treatments and well, if I can be honest everything points to take more pills, yes easy enough to hand someone a bottle of pills and tell them to take them and it will all be okay.
The side effects of these medications are horrific and I know, I was prescribed a “popular” medication for the pain and treatment, the only thing it did was make me suicidal and not want to live, no pain relief no temporary pain free time, gain massive amounts of weight and make you like a zombie. The pain was still there. Now here is what bothers me, and I am not going to sugar coat anything, I have had this going on for years, and never ever once was I offered any kind of pain relief. When I did ask I was made to feel like a “junkie” looking for a fix, and was told to go see a Pain Management Specialist, Physical Therapy and all sorts of other bullshit.
This is my personal daily struggle.
I wake up (when I can sleep which is not often) and I feel like every muscle in my body has been severely beaten, it feels like fire ants are inside my nerves, bones and eating and burning away at me. If I am lucky, I wake up with just mild headache and not an overbearing Migraine which cripples me all day, neck and back pain that makes it difficult to do anything.
Now, add heat , cold, light, noise and weather sensitivity to that and the icing on the cake, stress, anxiety, depression you are a disaster. You literally feel alone and just want to get out of your body and hide. According to many
“Medical Sites” they list a range of symptoms that we suffer with, what they do not mention is the hell your living with, but they again mention more pills! I decided to list some of them in hopes maybe more people and skeptics will read and see what myself and others suffering from this go through. So before you say to someone It’s all in your head think before you speak, this is a terrible and life changing illness.
I would love to see your ideas and share what you have used for relief.
