Chronic Pelvic Pain has stolen my life
painbecomesme posted:
I am really at my wits end and I have no idea what to do or where to go from here. I have been suffering from chronic pain since I was 10yrs old and I am now 32. I have had migraine most of my life. They started out 1 to 2 per week and I am now up to 7 days per week and this has been for many years now. On March 30, 2011 My life changed forever. I was at work and I started having this sharp pain in my pelvis and it has been there every since. I left work that day not knowing that I would never return. I have since been to countless doctors and had countless procedures with no one able to help me or give me a cause for the problem. I will add that my migraine trigger is pain. In the last 3+ years I have became severely depressed, have terrible anxiety, end my marriage, attempted suicide twice, had a miscarriage been admitted to the psych ward twice, lost friends and family because they don't get it, been accused of faking and being a drug addict to the point were I totally stopped taking all my meds against doctors orders for a very long time and only recently am I being to try and get back on my meds because the pain is really taking a toll on my mental state. I am not sleeping. My Ambien is no longer work and I have also tried lunesta and trazadone for sleep with no success. I go days at a time with no sleep at all. Right now I have been up for 8 days. I am in Birmingham and I am in need of a pelvic pain doctor and a migraine specialist. I will say that I have already been a Dr. Alex Childs and after over a year he couldn't find the cause and gave up. Please help. I want my life back. I have a young child and I am not able to be as active as I want. I just want to stay in the house and stay to myself. This is not me I have always been very outgoing...but because people who don't have pain don't understand it I suffer in silence. I have no one to talk to and I just want to stop hurting.
