Hi all, I have been folowing your community for a while, but this is my first post. I have suffered with a pain condition for 7 years now, I find it hard to talk anout as it's a very embarassing condition, and I have no visible symptoms. People just know I'm on painkillers for a 'pain in my leg', but people don't seem to realise how bad it is.
I've come to the end of the latest round of painkillers that did nothing (duloxetine) and worrying that the next (gabapentin) will also dl nothing, and so I'mconsidering what else might be out there.
Have any of you ever tried hypnosis for your pain? Did it help?
Someone else also told me about a clinic that will do a full body analysis - taking bloods and testing for every known deficiency under the sun, checking for food allergies and other conditions that could cause the pai as a secondary symptom. I don't know if anyone has ever tried that out and if it helped them?
Are there any other alternatives you've tried that helped even slightly?
