Crps in canada

Sep 10, 2016 3:04 PM

I was diagnosed 4 years ago. Kind of hoping to find a fellow Canadian to penpal with. I'm a 36 year old male from Ontario.

Hi am from Quebec, me too looking for Canadiens whit the same problem. I've been diagnosed 1year ago severe fibromyalgia am 37.

Hi juliacat I would be happy to chat anytime. Sometimes just having someone to talk to in the bad times seems to help

I agree it's not always easy to explain how we feel whit others who don't understand. This invisible condition has a lot of judgment.

Sep 10, 2016 3:43 PM

That's an understatement!! I get so tired of people telling me I don't look sick it's so aggravating. And really only people who are living it can see what we go through

Hey I am in Ontario diagnosed with Fibromyalgia last year! If you need to talk we are all here for you. It's hard to live with chronic pain and the judgment of others who don't understand!

I'm in Ontario also, but I have no 'official' explanation for the pain, the sleepless nights. Doctor after Doctor trying to tell me I'm in pain because of this and that....

I'm Canadian formally from Ontario now living in Northern Alberta. Hope to move back to Ont. In the next year. I don't have crossed but I have lupus which causes a lot of pain.

Gibber pain is pain regardless of the diagnosis or even if there is no diagnosis Spidey we are all on this together!

I meant I don't have crps.. silly autocorrect..lol Thank you Canadian.

Sep 10, 2016 8:49 PM

I also live in Ontario and have been diagnosed with CRPS for 3 years now. I would love to chat with you Canadians :)

Seems to be a lot of people from Canada...... I am from Newfoundland,i have been diagnosed with fibro 2 years after a car accident and it SUCKS!!!!!!!
I have been to a chronic pain clinic for a 5 week program and I must say.........it was good😊
I also receive Botox injections in my neck every 3 months. This is also good.😊 The medication I currently take are lyrica, cymbalta, nabilone, vit.D, oxycocet,and cyclobenzaprine. If there's anything I can help with just let me know
Gentle hugs to all:-D:-D🌷

It's so nice to know there are people out there that do actually understand the struggles. I have never even had the opportunity to talk to anyone who lives with the pain levels experienced with this disease, it would have helped so much in the early days of this thank you to all!!

These are lonely diseases. 💜

So how was your day.

Sep 13, 2016 9:19 PM

Pretty rough had to run some errands, and the weather is terrible hurting pretty bad tonight. How about yourself?

Sep 14, 2016 8:39 AM

Hey Canadianpain I am also noticing that with the weather change my pain levels are changing as well! Sucks that we are heading into fall and the cooler weather always takes time for me to adjust to and once I've adjusted big bad Mother Nature throws winter on me lol

I agre the weather really doesn't help. I had a few terrible days lately not only Pain wise but also stressed a lot du to the start of my second medical leave in the last 10 months. Seems like summer is finished. Am happy we have a wood stove , it helps whit the pain management during autum and winter.

Sorry to hear that I know how it feels to have to take a lot of time off work. I'm no longer able to work, not exactly safe to operate heavy machinery on the meds I'm on hope you have a better week😀
