I feel like I'm living in the movie groundhog day.every day starts the same. I wake up 5 times a night in complete pain and feel completely uncomfortable. I force myself to go to work and resist taking pain medication to until desperately needed. The pain medication give me some type relief but I don't like taking the medication because it makes me feel weird. I'm always uncomfortable and feel terrible. I get frustrated and angry with myself because this I can't break this vicious cycle. My only hope is that I can get another shoulder reconstructive surgery to hopefully solve this problem. I'm glad to have the support group where i can express my feelings.
What type of injury do you have? We are so glad to have you in the group! Hugs!
I have a recurrent dislocated shoulder and have multiple surgeries that have failed. I'm constant in alot of pain and hate taking pain medication.
Try to keep taking the medication, I felt the same way but know I take it and don't make myself wait till it gets unbearable. I have also found that listening to meditation music on you tube has helped a lot. Was so desperate would try anything and can honestly say that it has helped especially the guided meditation for chronic pain relief and sleep. Give it a try, what have you got to lose. Take care x
Thank you so much for the teply, much appreciated
