That's great news! Glad it worked out so well for you. By going to see her right away, probably really worked in your favor. For those of us on the patient side of PM, we have to always keep in mind the Doc's point of view. From her perspective, you did all the right things.
I hope your injury heals and you can get back to some form of moderate exercise. My pain contract actually requires me to try some form of exercise. All the research data has shown that those PM patients who partake in minor to moderate exercise, actually feel better and require less meds.
Some PM people just aren't able to exercise due to their condition, but many are. Even those who are bed ridden can get creative with exercise bands and etc. Exercise also releases endorphins, so one will tend to feel better and not so gloomy. For me, when I'm in a fair amt of pain and stay sedentary, the longer I don't do much, the worse I feel.
Again, glad everything worked out for you.
