Have Lived In Acute Pain For 2 Decades; Doctors, Exercising And Medications Don’t Work. What Else Can I Do?

  • Sharebar

I have seen every specialist in the health care system, tried more kinds of pain medications than I can count. I exercise. Have had xrays, MRI’s, CT Scans, and lab tests done. Have tried Chiropractic care, TENS unit, massage, heat, ice, accupuncture, reflexology, relaxation techniques, vitamins, natural medications sold in health food stores, hypnosis, and prayer. I am only 51 y/o and have no quality of life. This is not where I saw myself being at my age. The dozens of doctors I’ve seen over the years either don’t care enough to get to the root of the problem – or don’t want to take the time necessary to get to the root of the problem because my insurance is an HMO, and we all know they don’t pay the doctors as much as they feel they are worth. At my wit’s end! Is there anyone out there who knows how to get me beyond this degree of pain? There will be no more doctors or tests for me, so I’m reaching out to my fellow human beings. Help me please!

    Where is the pain? when do you feel it most? Is is bumps.. is it internal… ? headaches? muscles aches?? be more specific.

    It would be helpful for you to include where your pain is located and the diagnosis if you have one. Without that info I don’t think anyone can answer your question.

    have you tried natural pain control methods? In south america they make tea from Coca leaves. My grandfather is peruvian and when he goes back to visit he always has some. Its very therapuetic in its natural state. Also in the caribean and parts of mexico they use MJ leaves and soak them in grain alcohol for a month or 2 at a time and use the resulting liquid as a joint and topical anesthetic.
    What about desensitization? If the pain isnt structural (joint, bone, tissue, internal) then apply increasing pressure to the affected area over the course of a week or so. Massage roughly and test the limits of when it actually hurts “too” much. Lower the intensity for a few minutes and keep pushing the envelope. I used to have stress fractures in my right leg and this was how I pushed through that.
    You gotta put more info about the actual pain location and type next time.
