CatchMyPain Community and Pain Diary App to manage chronic illness

New Here & Exploring!

Oct 09, 2016 9:13 AM

I found this App & am so impressed by it! I have an invisible illness that no one can seem to figure out except for my chiropractor. Spinal issues with a cyst in my cervical spinal cord, which will be checked out in November by a neurosurgeon. Been out of work 2 1/2 years and go in & out of a wheelchair or needing a cane when balance is off and exhaustion takes over. It's been an almost lifelong journey with severe headaches since early childhood, which again, no doctor could figure out. My chiropractor did and continues to work on relieving my pains and weaknesses. He's a saint! But it only does so much.

I'm a middle aged Gma of 3 precious grandchildren. A wife & a mother of 3 awesome daughters! No matter what happens, life is good! I have an extremely supportive husband and we are parents to 5 rescued cats who always keep us in stitches with their antics!

Now that it's getting colder, my pain is doubling by the week. I hope to find out soon what is fully causing all the symptoms. It may stem from child abuse when I was young. Otherwise, maybe wear & tear on these ole bones.

Looking forward to meeting people who understand what it's like living day to day not knowing how you will feel.

Hope everyone is having a less painful day!

Welcome to the community I'm so sorry that you are undiagnosed. I have a friend who has pain in her side we both hope you get the support you need here. How old are your grandchildren? I'm 13 and I have crps. Hope to get to know you and that you find out what is wrong.πŸ˜€

Welcome and thank-you for sharing, your testimony is very inspiring.

Welcome! I'm relatively new here myself. Still haven't told a story, however; you and I have similarities. πŸ˜ƒ. I'm a 50 year old "Nana" with an awesome husband and 2 dogs. I've had pain and sickness issues since my late teens and I was also abused as a child. I really hope you get some answers and find some relief soon. My prayers to you and yours!

Welcome I'm new here as well. Trying to figure this app out. Sorry you hurt and are undiagnosed. Looking forward to seeing you around.

Welcome to the group. While it's nice to meet you I hate that you had a need to find us. Pain is a language we all understand, so come on in and pull up a chair. Make yourself at home.

Hi horsesnuggler12! Sorry you are so young and in pain. My grandbabies are twin girls who are almost 5 and a 1.5 yr old grandson. The joys of my life! I hope you are feeling well today!

Thank you WhatTheWorld. Yes we do sound alike. One of my doctor's assistants found a syrinx in my cervical MRI. I pointed it out to several of all said I was seeing things or ignored it. So hopefully next month the neurosurgeon I am seeing can tell me something.
