I see a pain management group and get nerve blocks about 3 times a year. Maybe 4 if things are really bad. I didn't know what to say so I didn't comment. I have never heard of a neurologist being pain management, my pain management docs are anestesiologists (sp) and that is the only kind of doctor I ever heard of doing it before. I know how hurtful it can be to have a doctor think it is all in your head but I am not sure if that is what your doctor is saying. Fibromyalgia is a broken pain response that makes you feel more pain than you should so maybe that is kind of what this is like. If not you can ask for another pain management doctor referal.
