I'm new to this community so thought I'd give a little introduction of who I am.
I'm 24, been signed off work as a healthcare assistant since September 23rd 2016 with undiagnosed back pain. I'm awaiting seeing an orthopaedic practitioner on the 9th December as my GP thinks it could be spinal fractures, bone crumbling or spinal cord damage. I've been on morphine since September but even that's started to not touch the pain which means I don't sleep much anymore :(
On top of that, I also suffer from M.E and have found that even though it was in remission and I was managing well, as soon as my back became bad (unknown cause), it's triggered a relapse and I'm now struggling with simple daily tasks again!
Looking for people who also have chronic pain and similar conditions for support and to offer support to!
If I'm going to be stuck at home and not able to move far, I want to be able to help somebody else have a smile on their face :)
Thanks for reading!
