How long have you suffered from chronic pain?

How long have you suffered from chronic pain? It's been 4.5 years for me now, but I'm only 23.

How about you?

I've suffered from chronic pain for about 5 years but the last 3 years have been especially bad since I developed degenerative disc disease. I am 56. If my tolerance for medication was better, I'd likely be more comfortable.

Too dang long! lol. Mine started as early as elementary school but they blamed it on my flat feat. Fast forward 20+ years...the pain increased over time and I stumbled onto the fms diagnosis when the doc thought I had carpal tunnel. That was three years ago. the pain got so bad I couldn't treat myself w/o meds any long. Much better now! Oh, the pain really got bad my 2nd year of college. I wish I had known what I was dealing with then instead of working two jobs and taking on an internship that likely made everything worse.

I have had pain since 2003 when I got what I thought was the flu. After it was over with the doctor said I had contracted a virus and from that time to the present I have had pain. It has gotten progressivly worse over the years.Right now I feel like someone has tried to twist my ribbs and spine and mucsles around my ribbs until I am ready to scream in misery. Have taken Vicoden, Fiorinal and as a last resort Methadone that I had left over from when my husband had cancer. The pain went away for about 1 hour. Unbelievable!! I will get no sleep tonight as usual.

6 years and I'm 18. Years of telling everyone I couldn't do things (get up, go to school, chores, go out.....), which was just put down to trying to get out of things. Here's praying for a cure. I want to go to college and have FUN!!!!!!!!
