George Clooney Still in Constant Pain From His 2005 Accident While Making “Syriana”

Just because one is rich, famous, and handsome doesn’t mean their life is perfect. George Clooney says he still feels pain at least three times a week from an accident back in 2005.

While making “Syriana” George fell and split his head open. He ended up with a cerebral / spinal fluid leak.  He’s had surgery, but to this day, he still has pain on average three times a week.

George has tried to get rid of the pain, but nothing seems to be working.

“I went to a pain-management guy whose idea was, ‘You can’t mourn for how you used to feel, because you’re never going to feel that way again.’  Meaning, you wake up with the worst hangover ever, and that’s your day, and you have to come to terms with it.”

That does not sound like my cup of tea, but he’s not alone. Many others live with their pain daily because nothing can be done with it. I feel for them in having to suffer when they shouldn’t.

George explains more what he deals with then the pain hits him.

“I’ve gone from where I can’t function, where ‘I just can’t live like this,’ to ‘I’ve got a bad headache.’ It’s called ‘positional,’ meaning the longer you sit upright or stand upright, the worse it gets. That’s how it is. As the day goes on, it gets worse.  My ears will literally pop and my head goes [crazy].  But I’m scrappy.”

Hopefully one day he can be pain free and live a life with out the worry, as I hope the same for you if you are in a similar situation!
