I haven't been on for awhile and when I checked to see replys, I was so happy. Thanks for sharing-I can't tell you how much it means to me. I feel so alone with this constant pain and all these meds that simply don't work.This pain has now ruled my life for a year and a half. I divorced last May and my ex cancelled my insurance. Every cent I have goes toward meds and appts. The nerve block costs 2,000 for the surgical center where my docter would perform the 15 min procedure-the anthesia costs another $900.00 and I didn't even ask how much my doc's fee was. After talking to the Office manager she said he could do it at his office with no anthesia for $660.00. I can borrow that but if what I understand is correct, It needs several attempts. I can't afford this especially with all my med costs. I still need to work another 6 months or more to be eligable for health insurance at my job because of a terrible union contract my job has. You have to work 2 years at 24 hours a week. My manager will only give me 18 to 20 hours. It's a no win situation. I know this is a long reply, but I get so frustrated and being in horrible pain that I don't understand, I really get hopeless. I just want to say thanks for support, this is the first time I've reached out.
