Advice please, I'm being 'guided' towards the pain clinic for chronic pain management. However, with a waiting list of up to a year to go on the Pain Management Programme I could do with some practical advice. I have trawled the internet for 'sleeping with pain'. To be told, don't drink' don't smoke ........ usless advice. Can't lie on my right after bicep sugery, can't lie on my left because of knee pain as a result of the knee that 'popped' nearly 8 months ago. A few short months after a successful arthroscopy for a torn cartilage. Can't bend my elbow without pain so limited writing and even this post has been painful. Can't walk far and driving is painful as I have a manual. Been discharged from 2 separate physios for not improving after one week of exercises. Both physios disagreeing with each others diagnosis. I've also researched the Pain Toolkit but couldn't find any actual practical hints or tips of how to cope with the pain and the pain medication I have been on for far too long. Any links or practical advice gratefully received. Been signed off for 8 months so far. No light at the end of the tunnel. Fed up and exhausted both mentally and phyiscally of the whole scenario. Local hospital are ......! and because of where I live there is no other option. Thank you
