At wits end with neuralgia

At wits end with neuralgia

Hi my names Tracey, just been woken up again in, chronic pain, nothing in house, had to go cross Road to taxi office get paracetamol, from the girls,

I'm in constant pain, I try not talk, eat food or move my face, iv went from 11 stone to about, six, living on soup, I'm at my wits end

Also live with complex regional pain syndrome, and osteoporosis arthritis, in knee and foot, was in merchant navy for year, stairs on different ships, done me in plus all the accidents, I had in rough weather, hasn't helped, rest I can put up with but this face 😔 omg, shoot me, sleep hanging out of me and no one gives a dam, doctors don't care

I've been threw every pill in the book not working, want an operation, won't do it, might paralyse the face 😔, think I could risk the chance, as iv paid well into the system, and have hardly bothered them, till all this crap was diagnosed,

Did not sign on for all this, wish I could go back to my job, but no I'm not fit for any purpose, depression bad, could do with a friend and some advice, thanks for reading 📖 ☝

Scroll down in the above link to view the Neurological Signs and Symptoms of LOW B12. Do you know your level - needs to be over 500. Also have folate tested as it works with B12 in the body. Also LOW mood can be linked. Check Ferritin and VitD too ....

I have trigeminal neuralgia Tracey and I know how bad the pain is ,I take a antiepileptic drug called tegretol or carbamazepine it makes you feel rough and all over the place . I started it very young and my doc said you poor girl , it's one of the worst pains to have .

I don't think anyone signs up for a life of pain but we get what we gets and if you can try and not focus on that and get a hobby I promise it's a great distraction if not a little expensive . I know your bound to feel unwell tired and generally fed up because your not getting help and that's really hard with this type of pain .I also have fibro , osteoarthritis , arthritis of spine , knees ankle neurotphy pain in feet and I could go on but you get the picture .

Get your dr to refer you to a pain clinic and they can do things like change meds give you new ones . You need help my friend , please come back let us know how your doing . 😇X

That's such a lovely thing to say . It's so hard when your lonely and have no one to count on but I can tell you that if you come on here you will make lots of friends and I'm always around so just come on here and you won't be lonely , I know we are online friends but that's ok . Now I'm sending you a cyber hug and I think you should see your dr on Monday because you seem depressed and that doesn't help anything . Take care sweetie . Xx😇

Hey, well everyone on here is really lovely , just keep popping on and you will make loads of friends I know it and you won't be lonely anymore .

I think because of all the pain and hard shape we are in makes it easy to isolate ourselves and I'm the same but we must keep trying . Sleep well xx 😇
