Our expert says:
This is indeed a very difficult situation. Are you receiving any thyroid supplementation and have your thyroid levels been checked? This could also add to the weight gain and inability to manage the pain. There are specialists who deal exclusively with patients who are experiencing severe pain. I suggest that you try and make an appointment with a pain specialist. Physiotherapy is a good idea, and I am glad to hear that you are seeing one, but you will have to start mobilising otherwise the pain will just become worse and you will gain more weight. Good luck and I hope you find some relief soon.
