unsympathetic doctors

Sep 28, 2016 5:56 AM

I can see why so many with chronic pain get sick of doctors. When my right fractured foot was red, doctors said I had CRPS and fibro. I was told to not aggravate the pain. Now few months later I have the same pain but am managing better with pacing, and dozens of suplements. Now the doctors tell me that I look better, dont have crps, probably dont have fibro without testing of looking at my body. Apparently the pain is now due to nerve sensitisation and created by my mind which doesnt want to return to stressful work.... I know the difference between crps pain and real pain...if I m busy talking to someone and then feel pain without 'overly analysing' my pain...it s real ...no brainer. The insurance company is not chasing anyone...why are the doctors trying to diagnose my pain as phantom pain? i said walking with pain is bearable, however not being able to sleep due to pressing pain is terrible especially since I m too sensitive to take medicine... sigh very frustrating to deal with doctors who diagnose without evidence....

I'm sorry you're dealing with this. I've had doctors do this to me too. Have you seen a pain specialist? Mine told me exactly why my lower spine hurt when I try bending back at all; facet joints. Not even my spine fox explained it. Get a second of third opinion if you can. Hugs love & prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌸

I had a two hour session with a new physio. He s actually found a structural causes for some of the pain. A light at the end of the tunnel. He also believe that the medial system is stuffed. Keep searching for the right practitioner. I will soon see a wholistic doctor

Don't let the doctors make you doubt the way you feel. I have gone to sooooo many specialists who told me I'm physically fine so it must be in my mind. It took many years of misdiagnosis and mean spiteful doctors to finally convince one my pain is real.
