Thankyou for the message. A kind word is all I need most days, I think the medication is second to words. I wish you well.

Good morning Lorsxxxx.nice tohear from you. I have had a tens machine for about three year now ,I Finn it disguises the pain for awhile, but (I'm starating to moan now) does not gIve enough relief. I always sit with ice packs under me otherwise I think I would go mad.I take 400mg of tramadol a day and 75mg of amitamitrtyline at night. I think now I take out of habit as they do not ease my pain.x

Hi Spark, sorry to hear you are in so much pain. When my back pain starts I soak in a warm bath with Epsom salts and it does ease it sometimes. I have also been to physio which has helped a little and I try and do simple exercises each day. Obviously when it's really bad I do have to resort to pain killers and rest. You will get lots of good advice on here or at the very least lots of support and kind words. So welcome to the forum my lovely, I look forward to seeing you around the place. xxx

Hello, I read your post and can't believe it, it's like I've written it myself !! When you actually learn that there are so many other people feeling the same way as you do and that they can understand what every day is like, it lets you know that you're not going mad or imagining it all. We get up each day, usually flippin exhausted, and struggle to get about until you pop your pills, and slowly, very slowly , you begin to loosen up a bit? I am just off to a PIP assessment, and have to try and explain how bad the days are, to someone who hasn't got a clue what it feels like to be trapped inside this pain, every day. So , I will catch up with you again ,and we can grumble to our hearts content, knowing that someone out there understands. much love.
