Hi to all

I have been in chronic pain x4 years now. I have read some of the others posts on the PM forum and can relate to the mistreatment by physicians, fighting to get the meds that work for me, and many other aspects of care. Just wanted to say hello to everyone! Stephanie

Re: Hi to all

Hi Stephanie,
Welcome to the board! We're glad to have you join us.
Sometimes it can be difficult to get to the right pain medication and the right dosage, it does take time and some patience on our part before we find the right combination for us.
And it can be frustrating for us because we are in pain and want it to go away.
Anyway, hang in there and hopefully you will find the right med for you, and the right doctor. They are both a hugely important part of our pain management plan.

Re: Hi to all

Welcome to the group Stephanie- It truly is a trial & error thing in trying to find the right doctor & the appropriate treatment plan that helps isn't it? I've had a couple "doozies" as PM doctors and am so glad I am now with an educated, knowledgable, caring PM doctor who has rules in place to protect his practice, which in turn, protects his patients. He's strict & does it by the book, yet very kind & compassionate with his patients. If it weren't for him, I'd have no quality of life.

Let us know what your story is when you feel comfortable sharing. Have a great weekend!
