Chronic Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. Fibromyalgia. Osteoarthritis. Restless Legs Syndrome. Four herniated discs in her back. All are diseases that Lena has to live with every day. Because of new guidelines from the Danish Health Authority, doctors are more hesitant to prescribe the opioid pain medication that Lena needs. She hasn’t had her medicine in two months.
Now, Lena struggles to carry on with the tasks of daily life. To relieve the pain, she spends most of her day outside. The cold takes the top off the constant pain in her body.
