It's R U OK? Day so don't worry and rant away
b*tch: I suffer from chronic back pain, undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for 10 years. I'm spiraling into depression more and more and the health system refuses to look into my case more or help. I've already spent my life savings trying to get it sorted but now I'm broke and have no options.
Been told my only step left is more private consultations at $500 a pop.
Sorry for the rant, just a bit fed up.
I've had chronic back pain for the last couple of years and I'm actually pretty young to have chronic back pain. It's mostly in my shoulder and upper back and neck.
I have one friend though in his forties who has had chronic back pain for very long time and it can get very bad to the point where he couldn't sleep or walk around much. He found a guy who has studied with nerves like actually cut up a dead guys body with a few other guys to study the nerves and things like that and he told him that he will make him sleep for 12 hours straight. A few sessions later and my friend was walking normally again and he goes to get massages from this guy every couple of weeks or months and it greatly eases the pain.
Another thing is being with friends and doing something together with them like when we had a barbecue lost weekend my friend said he had forgotten about his pain when we were busy making shish kebabs and chatting away.
Anyways I hope things get better for you!
