S1 neuropathy - central (very painful!!)
Hi to all
I went off to a persistant pain clinic and the neurologist (whom is now a professor of neurology) has told me that i suffer with neuropathy - sciatica from my damaged nerve.
I never thought they would put a title to my pain (but i guess we all think that) and i think ia m glad that i finally understand.
My nerve is damaged and further to my foot i have peroneal neuropathy too.
I am asking if there are others whom also suffer with this condition and especially feeling the intense pain 7 days a week??
It is horrific at times and absolutely draining and depressing!!
I have been giving a list of things i cant do for the rest of my life (unless i want to experience the pain!!) life i cant pick anything heavier than 7 pounds and im not aloud to bend too much and i have to brace myself each time i cough or sneeze.
Hard to deal with the thought that iw ill have this for the rest of my life.... DOES ANYONE NOW OF ANYTHING I CAN DO OTHER THEN TAKE MEDS?
I am on 20mg oxycontin twice a day and 5mg twice a day with endep 50 at night.
My pain dr said he thinks i should get off the oxycontin but life for me without it IS HELL!! The pain is unreal and there EVERYDAY.
What to do?
Is anyone else suffering with this debilitating condition???
