Feeling shy as a new member here. I'm in S.W. England and I suffer from an as yet undiagnosed condition, which stemmed from receiving electroconvulsive therapy for depression in 1993.
It grips a certain muscle group in my head and neck and jaw and has been very painful for over 2 decades. I've had a series of flare ups over the last 2 years and the most recent has impacted so much on my comfort that I can no longer spend time sitting up.
I am laying down most of the time and my body is starting to get weaker. Sitting up normally, now, causes me to become feint/near to passing out after about 10 mins or so.
I think my road will start to go towards terminal now. I am suffering terrible anxiety attacks about the road ahead, especially after trying to sit up normally this morning and nearly passing out with discomfort.
I dont necessarily think anyone can relate exactly to this condition and I live aline; no family or close friends.
A care team are attending me in the morning and evening.
Thank you for this space
