Other HealthUnlocked Groups

You may have come to Pain Concern with chronic pain as a condition in its own right, but of course many of our members have other conditions, and so are members of other groups. Chronic pain may be a symptom of another condition.

Our latest poll is designed to see what other groups people who come to Pain Concern are in. This will hopefully also investigate what a group specifically focused on pain can provide.

We'd also like to thank in particular Hughes Syndrome Foundation and FibroAction for signposting their members to Pain Concern.

  • I so understand you dogbreeder. I often hope the Lord would go ahead and take me. Not only do I deal with the mental anguish from pain but severe depression which has been made worse by the constant pain and I also have severe anxiety/panic disorder with is magnified by how stressful my life is. I am also a cardiac patient with recent angioplasty but no stent which means I will reclog at some point or another. I feel the stress tighten my chest so bad, I wonder if it will create a fatal heart attack.

  • I've not has gastric bypass but I have every pain you can think of everywhere for years. I can talk to you about that, be glad to if you are interested.

  • Back pain and associated depression. 'Failed back surgery syndrome.' Would love to know of any groups for severe back pain, if anyone's heard of any good ones.

  • CFS/M.E,Thyroid deficiency,Depression,Kidney cysts(and still under investigation for other kidney problems

  • I had CFS and under active thyroid diabetes osteoporosis/and spondilitus hardening of the arteries in my brain depression and ashtma I am in a lot of pain I try very hard to look as good as I can I take my medication put on a bit of lippy and a smile and just laugh at myself as there's nothing to be done to my brain it's causing terrible forgetfulness, but I always say there's someone worse off then me, I'm fighting it all the way xx

  • You keep fighting Valerie because I tell you once everything takes over and you are not mentally or emotionally able to cope you will go down so fast. If you do not see a counselor or maybe on some depression medication, PLEASE get on that right away. There is NO shame when it comes to doing what you have to do to get control and cope with your pain. It is a killer but oh so slowly and longsuffering, trust me. Good Luck.

  • Is there more recent people to talk to? Most of these posts are 4 and 5 years old and seemed to have fallen away.
