Welcome to our community family Dorybrain! I have fibro, sjogrens, hypothyroidism, dementia/memory loss, DDD, OA and many other chronic pain issues. I've spent the last 6 years accepting my whole health situation and trying to find ways to cope and still enjoy life. Today I'm having a very base stress day and can't think of suggestions. But I'm sure you'll hear from others soon. Hugs love and prayers you'll get the support and coping methods you need! 🙂💕🙏🌸
Oh. That's different than the pain clinic I go to here. Mine will try different things to help us reach a place where the pains tolerable. They have done trigger point injections, epidural and .. I forget the name - they have gone in to burn the nerves in the areas most painful. They also prescribe my pain medication.
The one I had in Fargo was awful. I still laugh because he sent me to a psych doctor... Saying depression was my problem. The Psych doctor told me and sent him.a letter stating that if he would treat my pain I wouldn't be dealing with depression. He was not impressed when I have him the note. Never went back. So there my Rheumatologist treated my pain issues. Here in Arkansas I have the pain clinic, my primary doctor, my Rheumatologist and up until this wreck I had a Neurologist. Each treated a different issue I was dealing with but keep in touch of what's going on with each Dr.
Welcome and gentle hugs to you! So glad you found such a wonderful family. I am with a Rhumatologist and pain clinic here in the uk.
