How do you explain pain to other people in your life ( including doctors). I am 65 year old man who was very active ( playing squash, badminton and running) up until I was about 55, since then it has been a downhill spiral, up until now where I can't even stand or walk for any period of time without sufering etreme pain. My visits to the doctors, whilst they have been really sympathetic, have left me in a quandry. They have me using codiene, which helps, but the ammount they prescribe is not enough, I am left for some weeks using solphodine, which does not have the same pain killing qualities. Where should I go now, i deed what should I do, I feel as if I have any quality of life, and will be left stuck indoors, sedentary and unable to improve.
