i offer my more dubious welcome. i, too, can empathise with your experiences. and, yes, i, too, have been told that i "shouldn't be in that much pain." as i said on another thread, how do these quacks get into the pain receptors in our brains? i don't want ANYBODY in there!
as anyone here can tell you, finding the right pm doc is often a process of kissing a lot of frogs until you find a prince. the same is true of your entire medical support team. i also recommend that everyone in 24/7 chronic pain keep a psychologist and/or a psycologist as part of that teaam. i often want to scream and go around smashing things (as if i could in my condition ). seeing a shrink helps keep my life on track. has anyone else found this to be so?
oh, by the way, don't worry about rants and raves here. i've found that it's safer to take it out here than to afflict my wife with it!
a safe and pain free day to all.
That light at the end of he tunnel? It's an on-coming train.
