While serving in the US Army, I had 2 hernia operations, after the second surgery I had develped pain on the right side of my groin. I was sent to Walter Reed Army Hospital for pain treatment that absolutly did nothing. So then I was released in June of 1989. Since that time I have been thru 3 other operations trying to find out what was going on, removal of my right testicle and one exploritory operation. I have been to many pain treatment centers up and down the east coast of the US from florida to New York. Also have been on about every type of medication that is out there and yet to this day nothing at all helps. Yet the pain has gotten worse, it had got to the point where I was forced to go on disability and now totally disabled. I fought with the Military for 15 years and in 2004 finally was awarded full disabled veteran benefits.
My pain starts by doing nothing and stops by doing nothing, it is a dull pain, sharp pain, prickly pain, throbbing pain, pins and needles type pain and zap like being plugged in to an electrical socket. I experience all the various types of pain in a single day, they come as fast as lightening and can go away just as fast or stay all day long.
This has put me through ***l, I am unable to have a sexual relations due to pain and area it is at. My life consists of staying at home all the time, because I'm always in pain and my way of dealing with it is being in a rocking chair, listening to music while drugged up on medication that only makes me high. But that's better that drinking. I't seems all the pain doctors all say they have the answer but none really do, maybe if I had cancer or somthing they can see, because to look at me, I look normal and ok, my body looks fine, but then take a closer look as I constantly rock back and fourth while standing or you see my face look angry due to pain. All I do know is that nerve pain hurts, and I have been searching since 1989 to find help either to fix it or just help it and I have found nothing.
So if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.
