I’m 44 and a busy Mum with 3 teenage boys, I also work but on reduced hour and duties because of PAIN. I’ve been suffering what the doctors call CRPS from nerve damage to my knee, I’ve been in chronic pain for the last 19 months. I had trauma to the knee and had surgery 13 months ago. I am so frustrated as the pain is now down on to my foot, I explained this to my doctor last week and that I struggle to put shoes on now, let alone pants, his response was “just put your shoe on, it’s not like your going to do any more damage, just forget about how the shoe makes it feel” Honestly some people have no idea that To put the shoe on is like someone stabbing a knife in to you foot and pouring boiling water over it. I am on Lyrica, Tepentadol SR and Tepentadol ER which on a bad day leaves me groggy. I am also on my second trial of Calcitonin injections, just wandering has anyone had any luck with it as all I seem to get is nausea and feeling like I’ve been hit by a truck for 48hours?
I so need to be able to understand and cope with this as I’ve been told it could last a lifetime which is not what I had planned.
Thank you for reading
