I went to BC Cancer yesterday asking for help.

There's something wrong, I can feel something like sticky fluid pressing extremely hard around my cranium and it's so agonizing beyond words. I can't live with this, the cancer place said I may have to wait a long time for a referral to go through. I need help. I don't know what to do, but pray. What do I do? I guarantee there's something physically wrong, this is basically intolerable to live with.

thank you for sharing your continuing struggles. I can ‘hear’ in your posts how difficult things are for you.

this community is a peer to peer virtual space, so I'm not sure there is anyone here who can offer you anything that can answer such specific medical questions.

I truly hope you can find someone to help you deal with this pain.
I send you all my positive vibes that you get some relief.

@DanC - sorry you are in such pain still. I hope you get some answers and relief soon. ❤️‍🩹


I understand that living with pain can be difficult and overwhelming. It's important to let your healthcare team know how much pain you are in and how it is impacting your daily life. They may be able to offer you additional pain management options or suggest ways to cope with your pain in the meantime.

It's also important to know that there are many different types of specialists who can help with pain management. It may be helpful to discuss with your healthcare team about other options like physical therapy, occupational therapy, or psychological support.

In the meantime, there are things you can do to help manage your pain. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Try relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, or yoga
  • Exercise in a way that feels comfortable for you
  • Avoid things that make your pain worse
  • Get enough sleep
  • Talk to a therapist or counselor to help you cope with the emotional aspects of living with pain.

It's important to remember that you don't have to go through this alone, and there are people and resources available to help you. Keep in touch with your healthcare team and let them know how you're doing. They may be able to expedite the referral process, or provide you with other options.
