    How to live with chronic pain/nerve pain.

    I am going completely insane currently. I have constant pain with my ears and I can't cope.

    I've had more operations on them than I can remember, from grommets and polyps to mastoid removal. A lot of trauma basically. And now I am left with pain I cannot manage. I can't take the meds that supposedly help with nerve pain due to a as yet unknown affect, heart condition, and the effects of one of the ones that is known to be ok.

    So anyone here know of any ways to manage? As it's making me feel suicidal all over again, and irrationally angry at my boyfriend for wanting me to live.😡😢

    I'm sorry I don't know how to help, but I will definitely say a prayer for you!

    Do they have you on any medication for neuropathy?

    Butterfly, where do you live? Have you been going to a specialist?

    Sarah, England. I've not seen a neurologist or anything, currently awaiting cardiology appointment (October time) and have been under ent nearly all my life. Saraphim, no they've tried me on amitriptyline, but I have to take it at a specific time else it affects me the next day, and due to my work I can't always take it at that time.

    Too bad you have to wait 3 months for an appointment. You should see a neurologist. How difficult would that be?

    Have to be referred and nhs is falling apart so no idea if they even would refer, I shall ask. Had lorazepam for something earlier and that helped my pain a huge amount, shame it's such an addictive medication.

    Sorry to hear you are having so much difficulty. While waiting for your appointment, this may provide some comfort or hope!

    I believe it is available through Amazon & Kindle

    Butterfly, why don't you look into CBD oil? It's supposed to be good for pain and neurological issues.
