Maybe related, maybe not. But an interesting article anyway.

I couldn’t do chores or hold the baby - even the doctors were fed up with me: my life with chronic pain

The Guardian

What started as an ache in my arms got so bad I had to stop driving and could barely work. Three years on, I am one of 3 million people in the UK living with pain that never goes away

Um... This bit sounds very familiar to me!

"What seems certain is that something causes the pain circuitry in the body to become oversensitised, inferring pain even if no damage has occurred. In some cases, even the lightest touch can trigger a pain response; for patients with this condition, allodynia, it can be agony just to get dressed.

In my case, one of the most confounding aspects of my new situation was how unpredictable and nonsensical my symptoms would appear. Pain flare‑ups would happen seemingly at random, and last days or weeks at a time. The pain would move around: one day it would be in my forearm, then my armpit, then the back of my hand, before settling in my ulnar nerve. I felt as if my bones were being haunted by an unseen foe.

With all the above in mind, I very recently came across YouTube videos by Australian 'Professor of Pain', Professor Lorimar Moseley. He has made many YouTube videos explaining the issue. I must say, I found it very interesting, particularly as I had already come to some rather puzzling conclusions based on my own experience over the past year. Perhaps all this is already well known to concerned TLFers? But, in case anyone is interested:

This is a lecture for clinicians and professionals, rather than patients:

The Pain Problem...and how to be a part of the solution!

This is a lecture he gave to members of the public:
