Has anyone out there tried functional rehabilitation?
I've done about everything else other than a pump and lidocaine/ketamine infusions. I don't think my WC insurance will approve anything else for me until I go through functional rehabilitation. I was all pro about going even though I knew it was going to be the hardest thing I had ever done ... until ... I went through the interview process to see if I was a candidate. They approved me but I'm having a very hard time making myself start the program. My insurance approved it but I believe it is only because they plan on taking me off of ALL of my medications during the program and want to induce flares! Now I'm terrified to go. I had spoken with my PM doc who said I would be staying on my pain medications (and this program is part of his office) but then the physical therapist and MD that are "over" the program told me about the meds and flare. I believe that some pain can be good - and most of us are learning how to live with it - but I'm at 3 years with RSD and can't imagine how I will survive without the meds. Does anyone out there have any thoughts, suggestions or experience with Functional Rehab?
Thanks in advance for your help.
