Introduce yourself here and perhaps tell us a little about yourself.

Hey Braddo,

Welcome to the Forum!
I hope you find this place a stress free environment, because we all understand the pain you suffer.


Mate, you sure have been cut up a few times. You actually sound like an AFL footballer who has had to be reconstructed on a regular basis.
Have you been to a pain clinic before?
If not, you should ask your GP for a referral to the nearest 'Mulit-disciplinary Pain Clinic", because they will be able to teach you how to effectively self-manage your pain condition.

Brad, we are currently having some forum difficulties, so please bear with us until we have them fixed, but by all means take part in any discussions that are running, or start your own.

Hiya Brad, :)



I've only been a member for a few months still this place has helped me more than anywhere else I've looked for support or direction during the past 3 years. Clever decision on your part to venture in and feed from the wonderful knowledge the peeps on this site share so freely.

Great to meet you Brad.
:) Di

Welcome Brad,

You have certainly had a rough time! I hope that we can be a support for you. When the rest of our threads are returned, you may find some interesting reading too.

Peter's suggestion of a pain clinic is excellent. The only problem is that there are often long waiting lists. If it is possible you may be able to see a private pain specialist who will refer you to the rest of the people you would normally see in a pain clinic. However, the multi-disciplinary pain clinic is probably the best shot. Maybe have a chat with your GP.

All the best,

Mary

:woohoo: Hi, my name is Terry and my husband is Ray

In 1988 we were involved in a MVA which resulted in for me Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Ray was diagnosed later and told his was CRPS and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

We have been through Pain Clinics, Specialists and Doctors.

Just haying hello and checking out the website.
