My Pain Has No Cure

  • Published on Jan 11, 2019
  • During her first semester in college and studying for her finals, a strong and powerful headache hit her. The pain was so bad and lasted all day and night that she was unable to sleep correctly for nearly 2 weeks. What she thought was just stress from studying so much turned out to be a rare and painful disease called Trigeminal Neuralgia.
    As a freshman, you want to do well and prove to yourself that you deserve to be at the school you're at and that you can move to the next level in your life. For days, she studied hard trying to remember her lessons and prepare for her exam. At first, she thought her head was hurting from something small like lack-of-sleep or just a minor headache. But later, her headache became worse eventually forcing her to go to the hospital. From the outside, her doctor thought it was dehydration, but after being sent home, the symptoms became worse. Pushing through her finals week, she managed to complete the exams, but at a cost. Her health was not in a state of emergency. She didn't know it at the time, but she had Trigeminal Neuralgia, one of the most painful diseases in the world. Her nerves all around her face and head are extremely sensitive forcing her to feel pain 24hrs/ day. Unfortunately, there is no cure and for most, they'd rather end their life than go through the excruciating pain. Although extremely painful, she continues to fight and hide her pain while in public because no matter how difficult things get, you must fight on.
    About the disease:
    Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition that affects the trigeminal nerve, which carries sensation from your face to your brain. If you have trigeminal neuralgia, even mild stimulation of your face - such as from brushing your teeth or putting on makeup - may trigger a jolt of excruciating pain. Because of the variety of treatment options available, having trigeminal neuralgia doesn't necessarily mean you're doomed to a life of pain. Doctors usually can effectively manage trigeminal neuralgia with medications, injections or surgery.
    Please remember to take care of your health and yourself. Sometimes you have to push yourself, but you should never harm your body to reach any goal. There is a fine balance between achieving goals and being careless with the one life and body you have. If you ever need help, if you ever feel stressed and if you ever feel alone, please remember we care.

    I was always get sick since i was 7, my body always hurt so bad, i felt tired all the time, my body felt heavy, felt like it falling a part, felt too hot, some times too cold and some times, i can't even breath. One time, i was walking but then, my body all the sudden stop and i can't move, i started to panic and fell down on the floor, luckly my mom got home in time. A lot of times, i was in so much pain so i start thinking about ending my life, but i was too weak to even move, now i'm 11, everything still hurt but atleast now i'm strong enough to run...

    I relate to this so much. I have multiple sclerosis and I've been up for almost three days now in pain. I'm losing feeling in my dominant hand, my right hand. But as I'm losing feeling it also feels like somebody is hitting me with a hammer repeatedly. It started on just the outside of my pinky is slowly spreading across my hand. I have new health insurance so I'm not even able to make an appointment for another couple of weeks. I came across this video by accident and although I would never wish pain on anybody else it's good to know that I am not alone.

    I had a doctor like this. He took my blood and I was almost crying in pain from the needle. He said I was lying about it hurting.
    I have anemia. Iron medicine is known to cause stomach upset. I told the doctor it bothered my stomach. He said I was just being picky or I was too incompetent to have it with water.
    He changed the medicine and I threw up 11 times in one school day. My dad picked me up, the nurse told him what happened.
    The doctor said I was being picky and I needed to get used to it.
    I stopped taking the medicine, I stopped going to the doctor. That was 3 years ago

    Blue Widow is a prolific hybrid cross between parent strains Blueberry and White Widow. Leafly reviewers praise Blue Widow for its anti-inflammatory qualities, and perhaps the reason for this is Blue Widow’s rich terpene profile that typically boasts high levels of caryophyllene alongside a hearty cannabinoid content. heard this was very helpful to someone who had the same problem. she tried white widow only.

    I am 10 years old and I feel so tired! Not like "I hate school and chores and blah blah blah" tired, but collapsing as soon as I wake up of tired!!
    I also am very slim, my friends mothers worry about me!!!!
    My mom tells me to "eat more!" But when I eat like 4 meals in one day instead of 3, I feel dead. I sleep like a log, beddie time is 9:30... what could be wrong?
    My mom is a doctor and she doesn't even mention it!
    Anyone smart (well, everyone here is smart, in their own way!) tell me a prediction of what's wrong and how to get my moms attention!?!!!

    This is called ‘the suicide disease’. Because of the nerves involved, there is no pain pill that can help. You can “try” alternative therapies-massage, trigger point, acupressure or acupuncture, cbd oils (some find cbd WITH the thc helpful). Think of the pain scale. 1-10 is most pain. I have only known pain in my life-my pain scale runs 10-20. Someone with this disease runs 40-50 when they have a flare. Some find ice or heat help. Some have tried Reiki. It’s seriously the worst pain imaginable times 100. I’m sorry for anyone that has it. There is a TVclip video where someone tried cbd for it-and it does help. Try it, or at least look into it. Make sure no thc unless you are going to sleep. Good luck!!!!!
