| | Re: Suggestions on questions or way to talk to neuro and pain clinic
Hey Tattoos, I have 3! LOL
When I finally found a caring PCP who actually believed in fibro, he referred me to the pain clinic on my first visit. All you have to do when you go to the pain clinic is to tell the truth. Show them where it hurts, tell them when it started, how bad your pain is, what you take for pain, what type of meds you feel you need. I have found that my pain clinic dr's are easier to talk to than any other doctor I have been to. Dont be nervous. Be excited that you will get some relief, FINALLY. I feel 80% better since I started the pain clinic. Not saying that pain meds are the only way to go, but for me it was. I have always had a very low tolerance for pain, and have gotten great relief. Let us know how it goes!!
(ps I have a chili pepper tattoo, hehe)
