Sorry to hear you have chronic pain. I too suffer with it because of small fiber neuropathy. I started having symptoms when I was 18 years old. I saw every doctor out there looking for a cause of my pain. It wasn't until I was 31 years old until I finally the SFN diagnosis. It was a relief to finally put a name with my pain because for years I had doctors tell me it was all in my head. I didn't speak to anyone about it among my family and friends because I didn't think they'd understand. Doctors would accuse me of being a "drug addict" that was looking for pills, when all I was really looking for was a doctor that could help take away my pain. As I stated above I found out I had SFN because of a punch biopsy my neurologist did on my skin. Since then I've taken pain meds, cymbalta and Gabapentin. I think you asked what we're taking now....I take 3 20mg Oxycontin, 4-6 Norco and 3 300mg Gabapentin a day. You may say, "wow, that's enough medicine to kill a horse." Fore me the meds help dull the constant nerve pain but it never takes it away. I hope and pray there is a cure invented for SFN. I'm not sure what life would be like without meds and pain but I'd sure like to give it a try. I'm a lot more open now regarding my pain with the people around me. Until you suffer with chronic pain it's difficult to understand what we go through on a daily basis. I'm lucky to have good and understanding people around me but I still wish everyday that I didn't have to feel like this.
