I’ve had problems with chronic pain for about 5 years now. It started when I was in college and I attributed it to the unhealthy lifestyle I was living. However, it persisted and only got worse once I began a super stressful job post-grad. I had been to many doctors and was tested for lupus more times than I could count. After a 15 day trip to the Mayo clinic for the pain (and a laundry list of other issues) and we landed with myofascial pain (chronic pain).
Does anyone else experience this? I’ve found stretching helps, but so many nights I can’t sleep because I have shoot pains down my legs (they almost feel like growing pains!) or intense back, shoulder and neck pain. I do take medicine which helps a lot, but I still am struggling with this daily. I also will take baths with Epson salts, but find that only helps in the moment, same with getting a massage. I also LOVE acupuncture, but can’t afford to do it as often as its needed to be effective.
I’m open to any ideas to help lower this daily pain!
