was injured at work 7-30-03 and from that day on i've lived with chronic pain and severe headaches and neckaches and shoulder spasms not to mention eye problems and hearing problems and loss of taste . was hit in the head with a very large pipe at work and it caused a lot problems starting with three surgeries to repair that damage and then had to have surgery to fuse my c5 c6 spine and from all that was sent to the center of neuro skills in bakersfield california to retrain my brain and eyes to work right and thru it all have suffered from headaches 24/7 not to mention spasms that are secondary to the accident in my shoulders . my life has gone down hill from that day since and have severe depression as a result of this life changing moment . to look at me you would never know i was hurt but inside i'm all screwed up and have short memory loss and blinding headaches and workmans comp has done eveything in their power to say there is nothing wrong and to get them to do anything is like pulling teeth and to say the least my life has had many ups and downs and even suicide has crossed my mind and had to have my wife hide the gun and thru it all i still go to work and pray for a quick end to this so called life. before this happened i was a person who lived life to the max with everything you could imagine from motorcycle racing to martial arts and was the president of our motorcycle club and there wasn't anything i wouldn't do or try and now all i want to do is hide out in a dark room and not be bothered by anybody . i sold the motorcycle and quit the club and quit martial arts and the only thing i do these days are go to work and maybe a ride or two on the weekend before the sun comes out and the rest of the day is hiding from light and heat ? i live with chronic headaches and take percocets times 5 a day and have muscle relaxers to ease the spasms and pain patches to ease the spasm as well and have sleeping pills which don't do a thing for me so their very far and few between but thru it all i keep trying to sleep and thats almost impossible at times because of pain , a good night might be 4 hours and not in a row because i wake up to pain every hour or so and let me tell you that is a killer . when i do sleep i don't move at all and wake to the most unbeleivable pain and spasms to the point my eyes feel like their going to blow right out of my head and and the pain in my temples is so intense that i can't even touch them for hours so imagine what glasses do to them ! my question is to you all is or have any of you had this kind of pain and what did you do to ease or end it . please replyReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
