Pain - Unsure the cause

I noticed that several people experienced the same pain I am having now. Their post was in 2008. I am wondering if there are currently anyone still experiencing or newly started experiencing this pain? Lying down hurts. falling asleep in a chair - to get up hurts. To scoot down in the bed hurts. To hold the arms of a chair and lift myself up hurts. To lay sideways feels great until I go to get up and I can not- EVERY SINGLE MOVE HURTS! Just as it did in the chair. I can't sleep, but on one soft pillow. and as long as I do not lay down or fall asleep in a regular chair, I am fine.

I have taken 2 CT Scans - 1 MRI and and Xray- waiting for 2nd more result.

    we could really use more information such as where your pain is, cervical or lumbar, when did it start and so on, if you will look at and respond to the links i posted above it would be very helpful to our members.

  • Challenger, I am sorry- I may be ms understanding. I have all the results back and met with my doctor and my chronic pain is not associated with the spine. So now I have been sent to an GI doctor and pain management. In which I will reject until someone tells me what is happening. I believe it is in my stomach muscles. I can not scoot in the bed, I can not lift myself up in a chair by holding the chairm arms. So, I stumbled across this site seeing many others experienced the same. I really don't know what to do. It feels like my stomach and it spams too. The neurologist suggest GI doc because it could be the colon track, IDK

  • It sounds like you are on the right track by seeing a neurologist and being referred, the only thing that I somewhat disagree with is the pain clinic comment, pain specialist doctor's can be very good at diagnosing problems, the one's that I have dealt with in the past were more interested in finding my pain source than just giving me something to cover it up, I am sure they are not all that way, but if you do your research a pain doctor can be a very good choice.
