Hi I am new to the community,
Recently i have struggled much more at work or generally leaving the house due to pain or so I've been told the fear of being in pain. I've had chronic pain for around 4 years now. Ive had both my legs reconstructed to be re-allingned and recently had alot of metal work removed. The recovery is taking much longer then I'd of expected though. I have to wear saftey shoes for work which only make this pain even worse and leave my feet very bruised. I've been taking tramadol for the most part of 3 years but have been put on many other forms of pain killers (morphine/naproxen/diazepam/codein/amitriptyline) The doctors want to trial me on gabbapenten but I've heard very mixed things -has anyone else tried this? My mum suffers from fibromyalgia which I also think I have but my doctors stress it is hard to diagnose at a young age. The doctors now do not know why my pain is so bad so it is quite frustrating as I dont know or dont yet have an official diagnosis. Anyone else in a similar situation?
