Living life as a paraplegic, it's the complications, Research has shown that your level of injury and how you were injured can have an impact on whether you have pain.

Living life as a paraplegic, gunshot wound damaged my spinal cord in a most horrible way. SCI Complications. First comes the pain, omg the spasms, you get infections. Constipation is more fuel on the fire, adds to the pain. Then if your not lucky, like I'm not, you get the nasty bed sores. I fell through the cracks.  People need 2 be more compassionate, understanding. Believe your patient, especially when their in the condition Im in. What happen 2 the christian way. I know, Nothing anyone can do to help, that I know of. I'm getting all the help I can afford. . I'm venting and coping the best I can. INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE INJURED BY GUNSHOT HAVE MORE PAIN THAN PERSONS WITH SCI CAUSED BY OTHER FACTORS
I want the spasms and pain to stop. With surgery if possible? Research has shown that your level of injury and how you were injured can have an impact on whether you have pain. Individuals with low levels of injury tend to have more pain than Individuals with low levels of injury tend to have more pain than
those with higher levels of injury. Individuals who are injured by gunshot have more pain than persons with SCI caused by other factors.
If someone can treat my spasms this should cut down on some of the pain. Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage. In general, people can experience acute and chronic pain. Most people experience acute pain when they have a disease or injury to the body. It usually begins suddenly and acts as a danger signal telling you that something is wrong and that you need help. This acute pain can be severe or mild, but it usually goes away as the body heals. Chronic pain is like acute pain in that it can start suddenly. However, chronic pain differs because it can build up over time and continue long after the body heals.

Man i know what you talking about. I am 26 and just lost my 4th job due to the fact that i was unable to make 40 hour work weeks because of my pain, spasms and bowel and bladder complications. I freaking don't know what to do. All I ever hear is how i need to work, I have to work, I should work. No one ever stops to ask am I able to work. Every time i get a job the first few months are fine because the coworkers are not so use to someone in a wheelchair so they are understanding about me not being there all the time but then they get to know me. They start to realize that, although I am in a chair I am just a normal person. Then they start to not see the chair anymore and then being out b/c i am sick starts to become a problem. Just b/c my mind is health does not mean that my body is healthy. I am so tired of ppl thinking that the hardest thing I deal with is not being able to go up stairs.
