I have been suffering with chronic pain, which has been getting worse, for the last 5 years. It seemed to start from a road traffic accident but I have not been able to confirm that medically. The pain started in my neck, shoulders and back of the head (where I get crushing headaches) and over time I now get pain all over. I have had a mri scan which showed nothing wrong and x-rays. I have been on a range of drugs Amitriptyline, morphine, co-codamol, gabapentine for example but nothing seems to take the edge off the pain. I also suffer with extreme fatigue, swelling of feet and ankles and now coughing up blood at times. Admittedly I feel as if I want to die when I cannot take anymore and that is more regularly than I would like it to be. I do try to look for positives but that is far too difficult to do now.
