A little pain

Several years ago I broke my leg and ankle coaching soccer. I reset the break and tried to walk away, did not work so well. This was due to neuropathy. They set and casted the leg and would have put screws in the ankle but were worried I would not heal well enough. I use braces for my legs. I now have pain in my feet, ankle, legs, hands and arms, with the ankle being the worst. The pain was worst at night keeping me up and unable to sleep.

I was started on anti-seizure medication for this pain. After a month or so of discussion my GP put me on pain management at the lowest dose possible. This makes the pain manageable.

Reading these stories makes me aware how lucky I am to have a doctor who understands pain and is willing to help alleviate it.
