How did it go? I just experienced this myself on Friday! I didn't realize how stressed I was about it until I started listing my diagnoses and started 😭. I was wiped out the rest of the day and then next day broke out in a lip blister as I do when my immunity is down. It was a good experience though - he not only believed me, he kept telling me I should be proud of what I'm doing/managing with my diagnoses bc many of the patients he sees are much l as functioning than me bc they have "given up." He wants to try an epidural to ease my L4 L5 spinal stenosis, so after delivering 4 boys naturally wo pain meds, NOW I get an epidural? LOL 😂
I've gone a few times now and I have to remember that they see people with worse problems than me and may have a hard time being able to empathize. I have been very frustrated with my "pain management" Dr. I finally decided to follow what they said and try to understand that they have very strict guidelines to follow. I wish you the best of luck and pray that yours is more sympathetic towards your needs.
I went through menopause really young so that's the first thing that I think of when you mentioned hot flash. I don't know if you've already been through it but it's hell and apparently fibromyalgia can cause it. The Dr's kept trying to keep me on the pill when my body was trying to go into menopause. Just FYI. Keep your tap shoes on and your rhythm going 💖💖
I was around 26 when it started, I seriously felt like I was losing my mind and for about 3 years went undiagnosed. I'd have your hormones checked for it just to rule it out, most Dr's don't test it if your not in the right age range. I remember being in so much pain and just felt off. I can't remember how many prescriptions I got to go see the psychiatrist, lol, they just sent me back. I'll give you a few other songs to concentrate on. I Put the lime in the coconut and drank it all up. Daaaayyyooo, daaayyyooo and last but not least, Don't worry be happy. Lol, I'd love to chat more but it's 1:30am and I'm off to sleep. Best of luck and I'm praying for you!
I started to bawl my eyes out, when the pain doc, said: There's no doubt, the pain you have, IS REAL, so we want you back here asap! (Meaning in a week or so)🤗
The whole team of 3, pain doc, psycologist and physical therapist, had the meeting with me, and was shocked when I told them about the poor communication me and my regular doc was. They wanted to sit a minute alone to talk about my pain situation after I had told them how my pain is, how it affects me and my family, and the situation our family is in with my hubbys cancer. In a couple of days, he's going to get the new results of his last ct scan, so then we'll know if it has spread or NOT!! I also told them about my job situation and that I have a lawyer on the case, and that I have been pushing my doc to get the help I need!
So, soon I'll be going back! This is gonna' be goooood!!!😝😝😝
