I am so sorry you are suffering so much, but glad you have an appointment soon with the pain doctor. I am sure you will get good treatment It may take a while to get the right med at the right doseage, but you have to start somewhere, right??

I will definitely pray for you and I hope that all goes well for you. Please post on here and tell us how your appointment went and what your impression was of the doctor. I have a pain management physician and she is wonderful. She really listens to me. I have been seeing her once a month for almost two years now and she manages my pain quite well, considering. I have fibromyalgia and it is bad at times and I can't even move, walk or stand.

Well again good luck and God bless you

Ekk so glad you are seeing your dr on Thursday. I think this may play favorable for you being in such bad pain with the new dr. He/she can see you during one of your worst times and it may well give them a better idea as to what is going on with you. Usually on the 1st appt after an exam the dr will make a game plan. If you are on pain meds he should ask how well its covering your pain. If it does not work all that well for you, please let the dr know. I always told my pain dr if a med did not work, but I also said I did not want to be put on a pain med that knocked me out, or made me feel like I was in a fog. Susie
