Hermes123. Not all of us follow social media, yes I know off an age that puts me in the minority, but it is like the old saying? hanging ones dirty laundry out in public, as ex Military At one time on a social media site sticking up for our guys, had received so much hate mail from a certain sector abroad, said to myself this is not the behaviour of normal normal human beings and wash my hands of the whole thing of social media.

Sorry to hear you had a negative experience of social media, Hermes123. Hope you've found people to be more reasonable on here.

We're aware not everyone is on social media or even online, so we try to cover all the bases. If you haven't already, check out our Airing Pain podcasts (a few of the recent ones cover pain among military veterans):

We also do free paper leaflets and a magazine which you can try a free trial of:

Best wishes,

Pain Concern mods

I have no problem with this site what so ever! As I know in the main it is fellow like minded pain suffers online, so far a very good experience, I hope it last, as it helps us to keep our heads above water. Hermes123.

Hermes123 \i have had chronic back pain I am told is neuropathic and the tablets I was prescribed were actually opiates. I went through hell to get off them and now self medicate with supplements to take the inflammation down and essential oils. I am pain free with no worries as no internal badness going into my body. Everything I learned was from You Tube. Try it. You have nothing to loose and everything to gain. Everything I take is organic. Learn how to make your own pain free topical creams as well.

I am not looking for drugs-just pain relief. I had a spinal fusion L5-S1 in August 2014 which resulted in failed back syndrome and chronic back pain. My pain mgmt doctor diagnosed me with meralgia parestetica, which is compression of the femoral nerve.I just went to a spine doctor from another hospital and he told me that was all wrong,and the medications I was taking were also all wrong. I am taking 3 x 300 gabapentin per day,

Hello hidden

Good morning. Just joined this forum. On advice of hospital surgeon. Been reading your post which was interesting. I'm using gabapentin and paracetamol

The gabapentin makes me so sleepy. I have crps bad in my wrist and right foot. So painful. The pain pump you use sounds interesting. What's it called are they available. Thanks look forward to your reply

prookyskin71. I would not know where to begin with all the self remedies and other methods of treatments I have tried out over the years I was working, I spent thousands of pounds from my wages over the years of my working and have only come up with two life savers that help me with most of my pain. one is medical style infrared lamp I would not be with out, the other a muscle rub called Greek Mud, I been through the weird and wonderful with all they claims of healing power. 99. per cent rubbish. Hermes123.

Linnea1 in reply to Hermes123

Hermes, Would you kindly let me know the brand name of the Greek mud you use, and where you bought it?

Hermes123 in reply to Linnea1


Linnea1. Hello there I am pleased at least you are looking for help ? Joint : it will give you all the details on their web site, I always bulk purchase when I re-order ! But I would suggest for you? just order one tube and see how you get on with it first, it might seam pricey but a little go's a long way. Good luck. Hermes.

Linnea1 in reply to Hermes123

Thank you, Hermes123!

Hello thank you we will be following you now :)

I live by in constant pain. I have a appointment at pain clinic they give me tramadol that doesnt help I dont know what I'm going to do.

With doctor's knowledge, reduce slowly over a long period.
