every time I read about the struggles with chronic pain I ask myself why doctors cant just turn the pain receptors off. I know that pain is important to avoid injury but surely any damage is preferable to not being able to do anything because of constant pain
Find a psychiatrist who will prescribe you morphine.
Because they cant actually turn them off and painkilling meds that can do that have been demonized to an absurd extent.
Do you have any clear idea why your pain began in the first places?
I have a tarlov cyst in the lumbar area of the spine, which may be pressing against nerve roots and causing neuropathy down the line. Symptoms started appearing when i was just 14 years old and got progressively worse over the years.
