I can relate to what you've written. I suffer though this so bad to the point my kids bring me into the emergency room because it almost feels as if I am going to have a heart attack. It's how bad the pain gets but I'm scared to have the surgery because of the possible outcome. I go from suffering one thing to then dealing with something else. I'm torn as to what to do. My doctor has tried a few things changed some medications and none of them work completely.
