Dizzy I am leaving for the pain clinic in 15 minutes. I hope I have better luck this time then I have in the past. I really dont have high hopes or expectations anymore though. I was told bay a nurse at a support program I go to to make sure I don't go in there with an attitude otherwise I WILL be treated badly. So, I will try my hardest to be nice as pie but that is really hard for me lately when I am in so much pain. Just ask my family and friends.

Anyway, just wish me lots of luck! I really really need it! I need some sort of pain relief today!

Thanks everyone,

AngieW00t

So, they ended up puting me on lyrica and a muscle relaxor. I still dont have high hopes. I had some problems with the lyrica and my insurance company and the nurses are such asses to me on the phone. I actually asked if I did some thing wrong.

I am just tired of going in there and crying every time and being treated like crap. Maby I am crap!

I'm glad they gave you something different to try. I'm not a fan of lyrica, but I know it does work for some people......just not me.

You're not crap....they are just not treating you appropriately!!! Some nurses and doctors don't have any bed-side manner at all....they shouldn't be working with people.....don't always think you did something.

Can you go somewhere else? I'd look for a new clinic or doctor ASAP!!!! You have the right to be treated respectfully and they obviously don't do that.

I hope your new medication worls.....let us know how you are! Your friend,Chris

Hi,

I have been living with pain for 4 yrs, and it stinks. We have to find ways that are healthy and supportive to our needs. Trying to live a life that is wholesome in foods is a good place to begin!

I hope that they come up with something--and they call you back soon, I hate waiting for the Dr to call back. You're in my thoughts.
