I know that I am new to CP but I had a long convo with a friend I used to be neighbors with in Philly. She is a head nurse at one of Philly premere hospitals. She also used to work on the rehab ward. One of the things she was telling me is that to consider a nuero surgoen. I dont know if you have been down that route or not.
She said to me that in here field that she seem to be the best a pain management and have so much for options as in lue of different options. I myself if I dont get anywhere with my pain management doc will be going that route soon.
I do agree with the pain management seem to be more about trigger point injections and steriod injections that pain management. I just got shot down by mypain man. doc for some sort of pain man. intil or if the injections work. I was told that there really wasnt much that he could give me and to wait and see how the injections work and in the mean time I am in pain that is hardly managable at best. And I didnt take well with the trigger point injections in my lower back but I must say they did help a bit with my neck, altho very temp.
I can totaly understand your desperation for relief.. I get there as well, sometimes the pain is just that bad...but hold on you dont want to do anything that will make things worse for you in the long run and as many have given you some good advice and I really hope you find some relief soon. I am so sorry you are suffering so badly.
Praying for you
