Does anyone have any tips for being a SAHM to a young baby (5 months old) with ongoing chronic pain?
Im finding it really hard to manage. Its my neck, so even picking up ds & carrying him around makes it worse. Baby wearing is out of the question. I have to hold him for every sleep at the moment & sitting still for that long us making all my neck & shoulder muscles seaze up.
Panadol doesnt do much & I dont want to take anything else as im breastfeeding.
I had a massage last weekend & by monday afternoon I was in pain again. Its not possible to get a massage every day.
This would also be the case with physio, osteo, chiro, accupuncture etc as ive tried them all before & they all only work for a few days.
Its getting to the point again where im having headaches all day every day, sometimes they are so bad that I feel nauseous.
The doctors are closed until 5th Jan & they are a complete waste of time & money anyway - ive had this problem for over 10 years but looking after ds is making it a hundred times worse. Ive seen a ridiculous amount of doctors & specialists & theyve all just brushed me off because nothing ever shows up on xrays or mri's.
