I wonder if anyone can give some advice on this subject? As I’ve started sitting much more, I’ve developed sore areas below the ‘sitting bone’ areas of my pelvis, where the muscle mass has atrophied through rweduced walking.
I have a pressure relieving cushion from my wheelchair(used outside of the house) which I use on my kitchen chair & ‘Repose’ lilo seat & full sized for in bed. I use sudacream in the morning & before bed, although there’s no visible redness. A low dose of Nortriptyline makes little difference, ibuprofen sometimes helps, but isn’t good long term.
I try to employ ‘mind over matter’, but am not sure how long to sit through the discomfort.
I’m wondering whether to ask for pregabalin or gabapentin?
If it’s like this now, what will it be like when I’m a full-time wheelchair user?
