You might not be new to Healing Well but you are new to posting here on the Chronic Pain forum, and I want to Welcome you to our family, I think you definitely have come to the right place! I am so glad that you are seeing a PM Doc! It sounds like she is definitely going to make some positve changes in your life! I congratulate you on making the decision to go to a Pain Management Specialist! I think you will find it just might have been one of the best things that you have ever done for yourself! With the next best thing is coming here to our Chronic Pain Forum!
I hope that you become an active member of our family as we all help and support each other here. We might not be able to fix each others pain, but we definitely can listen, and support and empathize with each other and if nothing else it is just nice to know that we are not alone CP! Anyway I am sorry for your pain and suffering but am over joyed that you have a PM now helping you and even happier that you have come to our forum!
