Welcome to the best supporters on the web!! As you can see, we all understand what you are going through. We all deal with our own pain and frustrations at what doctors will and won't do. But your pain needs to be managed. I did not fully understand this until I started going to pain management 5 yrs. ago. One thing a lot of us do is keep pain diary every day. What hurts, when, how bad, what does it take for you to ease it up (lay down, sit, etc), and the most important is how this is affecting your daily life. When we go to the doctor, we take this with us and let him read it. Most of the time it gives them a better understanding of what you are going through.
Take care and please keep us posted. We are all on this journey together.SandraVeritas Health Forum Moderator
