@A MyChronicPainTeam Member. That's very good advice. I've had CRPS since 2007 and back then most doctors had no idea what it was or how to treat it. People today need to educate themselves so… read more

Does Anyone Feel Guilty About Being So Tired?

Does Anyone Feel Guilty About Being So Tired?

just wondering how you get over feeling like you need to apologize or "power through" fatigue. 🤔

This is interesting... I read where pain patients begin their story "I was in an auto accident (it wasn't my fault"). It seems we apologize for breathing! :) I think we feel bad for not being… read more

What Can Be A Solution To Arthritis?

What Can Be A Solution To Arthritis?

I have unrelenting arthritis in my neck and shoulders, pain is almost unbearable from 3am to 10am. I take 75mg of Diclofenac sodium delayed release tablets twice a day but still have unbearable pain mostly in the mornings. The pain lessens as the day goes by but never completely subsides. It’s very hard to live like this, the pain fatigues me so. I’m 73 and a polio survivor.

Is There Ever Going To Be A Pain Tablet That’s Going To Work 90% .

Is There Ever Going To Be A Pain Tablet That’s Going To Work 90% .

I have a lot of different pain going at the same time and so not all pain tablets work for all different types of pain in your body. I have transplant kidney so I get pain there from stones and kidney and bladder infections and then bowel pain and adhesions and back pain and groin and legs so you can see I get a lot of different pain happening all at once
I was born with a lot of different problems so I’ve been going through chronic pain since for a very long time. I use to be able to handle… read more

If Anyone Goes To UIHC In Iowa City Do You Have A Provider You Like?

I have so many problems and the general medicine people I've met aren't the best. No bedside manner, lack of follow up, seems they don't read your charts. I'm sure you've all experienced having to be your own advocate so much of the time🙁.
