Does Women With Chronic Pain Find That Their Pain Is Worse Around Your Menstrual Cycle?

I deal with daily headaches and chronic lower back pain, i find that when i am on my cycle my pain and body in general is so much worse, not like your normal menstrual cramps. Sorry if this is too much TMI! Thanks ahead of time!

I Had Anterior Discectomy And Fusion. C3 Through C7 With Plates And Screws In March Of This Year. 6 Months Later The Pain Is Still Bad.

I Had Anterior Discectomy And Fusion. C3 Through C7 With Plates And Screws In March Of This Year. 6 Months Later The Pain Is Still Bad.

An MRI from last month shows that I now blew out the disc at c2-c3 and c7-t1 with c5-c6 and c5-c6 having gotten worse since surgery. The surgeon handed me off to a pain specialist. I'm thinking of getting a lawyer. Neither will prescribe me anything for pain at all. I have never in my life thought of suicide, but now it seems like the most viable solution

The chronic pain Dr should not even hesitate to give you pain medication. The same thing happened to me. Just a different surgery on my lower back.

When did you get the vaccine, in relationship to the itching? I ask because itching is associated with allergies.

Does Anyone Else Have Pain In Their Ribs (likely Muslces) And Have Any Pain Management Advice?

I have a constant ache with occasional sharp pain in my chest (likely rib muscles) does anyone here experienced something similar and have advice for managing this pain? Any examples of conditions that cause this sort of pain would be appreciated as well as me and my doctor are still stumped.

I was also thinking costochondritis. It’s very scary feeling too.
