Unfortunately, I have been diagnosed with Multiple Joint Osteoarthritis as well as Fibromyalgia which I find that the two Conditions go against each other.
I am unsteady on my feet and until recently had to use two Crutches to get around with and provide me with stability.
However, I unfortunately had an Epileptic Seizure in my kitchen which caused a Dislocation of my left shoulder. I am unable to use a Crutch now on that side due to the immense pain from my Shoulder.
When I saw The Pain Management Consultant, I was just told that I am going to be in Pain for the rest of my life so I should just get use to it.
Has anyone else ever experienced such Negativity from their Specialist?
Every night I have to go through the same ritual of isolating each major joint and trying to increase the Range of Movement as the inflammation sometimes becomes unbearable.
I also have to stretch my muscles out as the Fibromyalgia and causes cramping down the length of the muscles.
Does anyone know what else I could do to reduce the Symptoms or what I could ask my Consultant the next time I see him so that i can start to feel positive again.
