When was the last time when you weren't in pain or weren't aware of the pain?



  • hi i am relatively new to cronic pain in its true sense. i have had various episodes of pain affecting one area of my body, lasting for a period of several weeks or months.

    however for over a year i have experienced cronic pain involving many areas of my body. i have osteoarthritis in my neck, lower back, hips knees and hands. i am waiting on surgery to remove an oeteophyte at c5/6, they are hoping i need only one level( i am more than hoping).

    the newest curve ball my body has found to challenge me is that if i relax or fall asleep my thumb in my left hand disslocates. it is as you can imagine quite painful.

    my medication is naproxed, co-codamol,gabapentin, amitriptyline and i use felbinac gell localy.

    this week my ot gave me a cosi chair, see it here.

    if you open the pdf it explains about the zero gravity.
    it is wonderful, i have only had it a few days, limiting the time spent at zero tilt to 15 mins 3 times a day as my thumb gets too relaxed otherwise :&
