While reading some of the blogs related to those suffering from chronic pain and issues related to their spine, I am blown away by how exact and in-common members on this site describe their condition related to my own. I have always known there were a lot of folks in the same, or worse condition than my own. I have not spent enough time reading other peoples stories and experiences related to suffering from chronic pain. I am glad to have found Spine-Health and look forward to interacting with the membership with a common goal of compassion and understanding of those who suffer from chronic pain. I also look forward to the benefit I will receive, by learning of other member’s experiences and the mutual help for each other…. Thank You for being here….
I have a problem with profound sweating. There are times, especially in the morning while I’m getting dressed when sweat is pouring off my body. It seems my upper body and head is the worst area…dripping sweat from my hair and soaking my shirt. I always have to sit in front of the fan for about 15min to cool down. Also, if I have the least bit of physical exertion, I began sweating. I don’t remember having this problem before my accident and have always wondered if it is a side effect of my medication or related to my spine, chronic pain or some other underlying condition.
Also…does anybody have experience with increased pain in their back or other areas they normally hurt during, or right after eating? Since developing chronic pain, I have experienced increased pain in my upper back and neck while eating. I often have to take my pain medication before eating to make it less painful, so I can enjoy my meal. If you have experienced either one of these conditions…please let me know.
