I have severe fibromyalgia but also have facial neuralgia and regular migraines. I a in permanent pain, cannot walk without wanting to cry, hands are crooked and almost useless . Since a bad fall I also have horrible back& neck problems.
I tell you this because I want to show that I live with pain & just try to cope ( what else can we do?)
I have poor vision since a TIA 7 years ago and although my eyes are so painful I have been told that everything seems normal but yesterday after a day of stabbing eye pain, I lost my vision in my right eye for about 20 mins. I suppose I should have gone to hospital, but what's the point? How bad do things need to be before I ask for help?
I live alone & try to stay positive, which of course isn't easy because of the pain but I hate feeling the docs think I'm moaning
