Hi Sherrie, oh darlin’ you really have tried the lot haven’t you… and SO young to have PPMS.
Many hospitals have what are called ‘pain management clinics’. You will need a referal from either your GP or your neuro.
These clinics have doctors who specialise in pain and how to manage it. They work on several levels… drugs yes, but they know more about how combination of drugs might help… or a different dosage. They also work with you to deal with the pain on an emotional and psychological level.
Many years ago I had a good friend who had AIDS and was in terrible pain. GP and consultant had tried everything. Eventually he got referred to a pain management clinic and before long things were MUCH BETTER for him.
Ask your GP or neuro to refer you.
I’m so sorry you are going through this hon. There is nothing on the earth worse than living with chronic pain.
Hi Sherrie Just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of and am so sorry that you are suffering so much. Pat’s advice appears sound and hopefully someone at the pain clinic will help you. Teresa xx
