I've had this pain for nearly 2 years and it has gotten worse. I am no longer in the mood of going out to bars/clubs with friends and recently resigned from my job due to the high stress levels (finance/accounting). I have no social life now and everyday is getting harder.
I am worried that I will fall into the same trap as my father who had overdosed with pain medications (most likely it was suicide due to depression from the divorce and back pain)
I have left active c6 radiculopathy and diagnosed with TOS (Thoracic Outlet Syndrome).
I have tried a great number of drugs from neurontin to lyrica, and recently cut myself off from vicodin (which I used for 8 months straight).
I don't know how to be normal and improve my health.
Any recommendations or suggestions on how to get through this.
