I have a mental illness and live with chronic pain. There is some deterioration in my spine but no other physical signs other than pain, weakness, down my left arm back both hips left leg into foot. It’s so bad that sometimes I use a wheelchair. I’m on butrans 20 patch, pregablin500mg a day, cocodamol, ibuprofen. Now I’m being told that my pain is psychosomatic. So how am I supposed to deal with it? Why do I have it? It feels so real, it’s not aches and pains, it’s fatigue, cloudy head, loss of sensation, weakness which causes me to drop stuff. The pain clinic says I have fybromyalgic spectrum pain but I don’t have fibromyalgia. Inflammatory blood test at gp came back normal. If I’m making this pain up how do I stop it?
