Pain when sitting.....15yrs and counting!
I have got pain when sitting. Burning pain between buttocks and rear hamstrings. Had the pain for more than 15yrs.
Makes me very down and also very very anxious as I dread sitting!
Seen doc tons of times over the years. Had creams etc. Nothing works.
He said it is stress related!! Ok, it can get worse when I am stressed but it's the pain that is stressing me.
I have many stretch marks in that area from when I used to weight train when younger (not properly!) The pain seems to be coming from the 'open' part of the stretch marks where it is 'broken skin'.
Recently the doc put me on Pregabalin. I decided to get off that as side effects not nice for me. Only 3rd day trying to come off it (75mg twice daily down to zero! Bad move due to withdrawal symptoms but I aim to persevere).
I tale Escitalipram 20mg for anxiety / depression.
Doctor sent me for blood test this week to see if anything shows up plus to check some vitamins etc. I don't eat healthy so recently started to take:
Cod Liver Oil
I have ordered 5-HTP too.
If it were not for my child I would not be here as pain is horrible to live with.
Doctor is useless. He thinks I should not dwell on the pain or think about it. Really!
Anyone have similar pain?
Any advice welcome. Thank you
