Welcome to the community!
@Coach_SSI Welcome! We're glad you're here.
Hi @Gremlin051, thank you so much for reaching out and being bold and honest in sharing your journey living with chronic pain.
Unfortunately, we aren't qualified to give medical advice here on the Forum. It sounds like you have seen some specialists, but have you seen a pain specialist? There might be a wait time but we would really recommend that you see a pain specialist so they can try to answer some of the questions you have about medication. If you live in the Vancouver area you could seek a referral to the ChangePAIN Clinic while you wait for the specialist appointment. http://www.changepain.ca/
To find a pain specialist, our volunteers at our Connect for Health services would be happy to talk to you in more detail about finding a pain doctor in your area. They would also be able to give you some tips and supports for your community/support needs and answer your questions on your work situation. The People in Pain Network also has a list of great support groups for people in pain.
Please contact our Connect for Health line:
Call us 24 hours at one of the numbers below (leave a message at any time, night or day)
Complete a self-referral form.
Take care, and let us know if we can give you any more advice. Please also browse our Live Plan Be website for articles and tips.
