A Day in the Life of a Back Pain Sufferer

HOW TO DEAL WITH PAIN ON A DAILY BASIS.

If like me, you suffer from chronic pain (30 years +) then you will know that it is essential that you know how to deal with it daily.

With over 30 years of living with some sort of pain I have some tips that might help you.

  1. Feel the pain sometimes rather than reaching straight for the medication.
  2. Do not be frightened to ask for help, see if a family member, a friend, or a neighbour. Take responsibility for yourself and ask for help when you need it.
  3. Find out what treatments are best for you. It may take a while but don’t think alternative or therapeutic treatments will not work as you might find one that really helps you.
  4. Rest, rest and more rest, every little help to recharge your batteries. When you feel that overwhelming urge to sleep try and get forty winks.
  5. Keep all your ‘helpful’ pain relievers to hand, be it a hot water bottle, pillow, cushion, medication, whatever you have that helps your pain.
  6. Make your work life balance work for you. If work is leaving you exhausted and in pain, then design a flexible plan that works better for you and your boss.
  7. If you are working from home, then set your hours for earlier or later in the day so you can be more productive.
  8. Try and keep a pain journal so that you can see what can trigger off an attack, then you can do something about it.
  9. Join a support group as there will always be someone who understands how you are feeling.
  10. Don’t always try to put on a happy face. Your loved ones need to know what makes your symptoms worse.
  11. Tomorrow is another day, and it could be a much better day than today.
  12. Respect pain. If you have increased pain lasting at least a couple of hours after you have completed a task, try to do less next time.
  13. Find a hobby, it is a well-known fact that hobbies can help to take your mind off pain. One of the best things I ever did was start writing a blog.
  14. Keep as active as you can, bed rest is not the answer. A small walk a day will work wonders.
  15. If you are travelling in a car or any form of transport, be prepared in advance. Utilize lumber supports, heated seats, and take regular breaks.
  16. Find your own chill zone at home where you can just relax, read a book, listen to music, read a magazine or watch something you love on your iPad.
  17. Watch your weight. I think we all know that excess weight can cause so many problems to our health, so it is essential that we check our weight regularly.
  18. Finally, never, never, never give up.
