I have a question for others who have gone to a pain clinic. Did it seem like a normal doctor's office, legitimately run, or did you feel as if you were in a place that at any minute could be shut down?? The pain clinic I visited, along with the nurses, and physician made me feel very uncomfortable, along with about 90% of the clientele. The facility itself was fine, but there was definitely a feeling that it was just a place to come and get a prescription. Actually, it was kind of a traumatic experience for me. And...I have to go back in a month, then every 2 months. I've finally got the pain meds I've been searching for that make my day's work so much more bearable, but now I feel guilty, or "wrong"...going to this place to get them. I hope you can understand what I'm trying to say, I feel like I'm rambling. Just wondering if anyone has faced a similar situation since most doctors aren't willing to offer pain meds for fibro.
