Serious Pain problems.. Is this SPD or not??
I am a teen with SPD. I have all of the symptoms + Obsessive compulsive disorder. They are both a daily struggle and they cause bad anxiety.
Most problems I have, even small ones, such as horrible handwriting and refusing to wear clothes besides a snuggie can be explained with both SPD and OCD.
But there's this one problem that I have that I can't seem to explain. I am very sensitive with my touch, and since I have OCD I have to touch everything twice. I lay down with one blanket over me and it feels like there is a metal sheet laying on me. Due to my sensitivities, I always assumed my pain was because of the SPD.
**THIS IS KIND OF GROSS AND TMI**
I get pain everyday, and it last for about 20 seconds. It's at random points ALL over my body. Mostly it's at the space in-between my breasts and at my sides. The pain is absolutely horrible and disabling. No matter what I'm doing I have to stop for about 20 seconds to try and tend to this pain somewhat. I get it in my legs, arms, head, and torso. But it does have its 'favorite' places. When I'm having my period, my cramps are very disabling. I could take 800mg of ibuprofen and it does nothing at all. I also have these pains at the entrance of my vagina, and sometimes (though not as often) on my clitoris. My cramps last about 2+ hours and my vaginal surface pains last about 20 seconds. It doesn't seriously affect my everyday life but it does suck.
Also, if I get pain from different source, like if someone punches me or I fall over and cut myself, the pain is horrible and disabling.
I assumed that since my nerves are so sensitive, my pain is worse, but I'm starting to think differently. What's your input? Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your input.
TL;DR I go through horrible bouts of pain everyday for no reason and I'm very sensitive when it comes to pain. Is this SPD??
