Maybe one of the veteran members ir even a moderator could make up a list of commonly used acronyms and abbreviations for everyone...If this has already been done I apologize, but my excuse is that I am very new........

I know that it would be extremely helpful and appreciated...

CP- Chronic Pain
PM- Pain management
PM doc- Pain management doctor - PM and PMD or doc are sometimes used interchangeably

On going back pain and neuropathic pain, failed back surgery, consult for scs, decided not to do that at this point.
Adhesive Arachnoiditis also......just what I didn't need..9/08- adding bilateral ulnar neuropathy with severe compression to the mix. They want me to see a surgeon for ulnar nerve surgery, but I'm not biting.
I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.

SR or CR is actually used for a 'long acting' pain medication. Standing for Sustained Release, or Controlled Release.
