I haven't been able do a thing for days. The pain never stops, it never eases up, it's there, like a living, breathing monster inside my head. Along with the pain is the nausea that keeps me from eating. Then to round out the party, the insomnia keeps me from even a little slice of relief.

I miss out of life and really have no life, unless lying in bed crying counts. Then I have a wonderful one

I don't know if I'll survive 10 more days until I get to the Cleveland Clinic.

I think if the pain is that bad you need to see a doctor. i know how it is to be in a lot of pain, although bad headaches are rare for me. I think headache, & neuralgia are the worst pain, because you can't get away from them. I have trigeminal neuralgia which can be very painful. I hope you get some relief from the pain soon. I have said prayer for you.

I am so sorry you have such chronic pain. I suffer from chronic pain in a shoulder and one leg which is annoying but not totally disabling.
I hope the pain clinc will give you a program to manage it successfully.

Oh, you poor thing. I am so sorry to hear you are in so much pain. I am sending every prayer, vibe, good thought, karma, etc. to you. I hope that the pain will ease enough to help you survive the next ten days. Cry it out if you need to. It always helps me, and supposedly releases endorphins too.

I'm thinking of you!

Hang in there Gretchen. I wish I could say some words of encourgement, but I'm at a loss.
Wayfaring Wanderer suggested acupuncture. I have heard that it has helped. Why not give it a try. It couldn't hurt.
My thoughts are with you. I hope you get some relief soon. Lisa
