  • Hi Soul Girl, I am sorry you are in pain so much. You sound very much like me. I find my condition drags me down , as I am in pain 70-80 % of the day & night. I would say the pain is up there with labour/ contractions at its worst and the rest of the time it is like having tooth or ear ache. My Doctor tries to help, but can't seem to find a way to cure this condition. I am new on here, so I don't know what condition you have. I hope you can learn to manage your pain and get plenty of rest.

    kind regards

  • hi so sorry to hear that your in so much pain but hey join the club i to am in constant pain and have endless sleepless nights really getting me down ,when to think 18 months ago i was feeling great then started having a stabbing,burning tingling and pins and needles in my feet legs arms and fingers also numbness keep dropping things and losing my balance.was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in december and then all this to deal with.i feel helpless as my partner has a cavenous haemangioma of the brainstem which is in-operable so have to care for him but in so much pain i just sit and cry thinking when is this pain ever going to go.

  • Hey Hun hope your ok , have they said you have small fiber nuropathy with you having diabetes at all . I was tested few wks Bk in the pain clinic and it was fine . But my consultant said to me having so much pain in my feet normally you have diabetes . But most things I have read states it's not always the case . Sorry to hear that about your partner hope he's ok and am here to chat to anytime if you need . It's horrible being in constant pain , hate it when ppl say well you look ok ,,,,,, my reply is live in my shoes then you will understand what pain is . Sending hugs x
