How Does Stress Affect Your Pain?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

I think the flare-up in back pain I’m having is only partially because of physical activity and partially from stress. How do I separate them and keep the stress from making my pain worse?😫

Unrelated, there needs to be a better pain emoji.

As far as baths and showers go, Dr. Teal's body washes, baths, and lotions all have Epsom salt in them. I like the one called Endurance. It's even a good shampoo. Has anyone heard of this?

The danger is over use and then you lose muscle tone. Best get advice from a Physiotherapist or similar before you go down that route 😢

Why Do I Only Get The Energy When I Have A Deadline, Especially In School?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

When I was getting my master's degree, I had a paper that was turned in at 11:57 PM, so every other paper was done in several rough drafts, taken to the Writing Center, and even taken to the professors when I needed a dollar to go buy a clue. However, now that I'm even older, and should know better, gosh, I can't get the energy unless a due date is rushing up at me. Right now, I even have late library books for the dang assignment. Did I even open them to see if they are the correct books? Yes… read more

Does Anyone Suffer From Internal Adhesions Which Have Inturn Caused CONSIDERABLE Pain And Issues Like Bowel Obstructions & Pelvic Pain ?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

It is not commonly diagnosed but estimated that 1 in 20 women (in US) suffer from it but receive GI or GYN reasons for symptoms. Ironically most issues stem from multiple GYN surgeries. They DO NOT show up on any tests. Most diagnosed by another surgery or a good GYN during physical exams but the doctor MUST BE experienced. Would like to exchange issues on help, MD's & empathy and frustration. Thanks for reading on.

Did A Minor Pelvic Surgery Have A Knock On Affect On My Overall Pain?
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hello all, a week ago I had a minor surgery under general anaesthesia in my pelvis. I’m not sore or anything.
Do you think it’s possible that it could have had a knock on affect with my general lower back and SIJ pain?
I’m really hurting when I was comfortable enough before hand.

Applied a year ago with an attorney. Still waiting. It’s frustrating, but I finally stopped checking for progress on the SSA site. Wishing you luck and a speedy approval.
