I have been diagnosed with POTS, hypermobility, CRPS, thoracic outlet syndrome and (a few other things that may or may not be related).

My new neurologist diagnosed me with migraines. I believe that diagnosis fits better than occipital neuralgia, which is what previous neurologist diagnosed me as having.

My new neurologist prescribed Emgality because I have been having 2-3 moderate to severely painful migraines per week. I just took my first double dose today. I was wondering if anyone here has taken it, what side effects (if any) you experienced, and did it work for you?

Need advice - How do you force yourself to exercise even when in pain?

Hi Everyone! So I have chronic pain in my hands, chest, and arms from Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. My doctors have always told me that I need to exercise and keep my muscles in my arms, shoulders, core, and chest active and strong...but it's so hard. I have such a hard time exercising through the pain, and even just getting up the motivation to try. What do you do? How do you do it if you've figured out a mindset that works?

So tired, in so much pain #Painsomnia #ChronicPain #ThoracicOutletSyndrome

Things have been better the last month but this past week has been hell. I haven’t been able to sleep the past three nights because of terrible nerve pain. It doesn’t matter how many pain meds I take or what pain relief methods I use, nothing works. I hate this. I know when you have chronic pain this is just a part of life, but this is just difficult to get through. Especially with no sleep. I feel like the only way I get better is when I can rest and sleep. Just wanted to share because I don’t have many people who understand. 😔
