I was hoping that someone could help me out with questions to ask when I'm scheduling a 1st appt with a new PM DR.
My physiatrist gave me the names of 4 different PM specialists to try to see. Are there certain questions that would be appropriate for me to ask when I'm calling to schedule an appointment (other that how soon can I get in, which is important). I do want to know about meds but don't want to ask the wrong questions.
I'm currently in PT, MT, have done 2 treatments of IMS and will continue and am looking to buy a TENS unit. Am on 15-20 mg of hydro 3-4 times per day, Mobic 15mg per day and 900 mg gabipentin. So what I'm really looking for at this point is mainly someone to manage my meds as well as giving more treatment options, in addition to what I'm doing already. My physiatrist is fine with treating me but doesn't want to go any higher or stronger on the meds.
