Good evening all, this is my first ever post on a pain site. I did not know they existed, so glad they do! I'm a 55yr old woman who is experiencing a considerable amount of pain on a daily basis. I use tramodol and the strong ibrufen during the day and and 25mg amitriptyline in the evening. I feel at times I don't want to continue with them and try to come of the Meds, however I then get withdrawal and the pain is still there. I find it frustrating to cope at times and very rarely tell others how I feel and I rarely go to see my G.P as just keep getting repeat prescriptions. I have arthritis and had a total right knee op a couple of years ago which in hindsight I wish I would not of have! I work full time in quite a stressful job and sometimes I feel in pain but push myself to go into work as feel like I have to. How do others manage with pain and everyday life? Thanks for reading this. My name is Mo. Have a good evening
