Got to go to a Pain Clinic

Jul 02, 2016 11:30 PM

Hi all.Ive got to go to a Pain Clinic.And I've been told by the Pain Nurse that I CANNOT take any Pain relief.Its for 2 days starting at 9am till 2pm.The first one is on the 5/7/2016 and the second one on the 7/6/2016.I don't think the Pain Nurses and doctors have a clue what Pain is.Ive been to one before and it was utterly useless.Sorry just had to rant

What's their reasoning for this?

No medicine? Yeah, why?

Is this so they can get a baseline of what ur pain is without medication? I take my first lot at 7am when i rise... then the next at 1pm... so can u medicate at say 8am & 2pm and stil be able to function? Just an idea... it seems barbaric to assume u can just do nothing! Maybe call the nurse and ask? My pain team is wonderfull but i have had 2 other teams that were aweful... so i do understand. Try to keep an open mind and the bes of luck x

I never take any pain meds before I go to pain management. I want him to have an accurate assessment of how I'm feeling when I go for the appointment. I also will not take my meds when i have to drive. I wish you the very best and pray that you have a positive visit to the pain clinic. {{{Hugs}}}💕🙏🏻🌻😊

This sounds like what the Mayo Clinic pain clinic wanted me to do. But they wanted me to stay in their program for 21 days without pain meds. I think this is the new grad the pain clinics are going to because of govt regulations of meds. Hugs & prayers you get through this with a positive outcome! 🙂💕🙏🌼
