How long does it take for the doctor to give up his diagnosis when you have tried everything that should improve things for you - but you are just getting worse.
My doctor is convinced that all my pain is from muscles...and i have certainly come to have a healthy respect for what muscles can do - do not get me wrong. But I have gone thru everything that would help improve my condition from botox to PT to massage to traction, trigger pt injections and so on - over the last 2 years....and i am just getting worse as the time passes.
When does he begin to pursue something else....last mri 1/08 (C) hernations c56 and multiple bone spurs. Thoracic nothing showed on mri - but I am convinced something is up (maybe it is referred pain from neck or deep muscles) - but if I move wrong I am done for the day!
I have appt with doc on Friday and I hope - oh so hope that he will consider performing some additional testing...Like many people here - I am at a point where I really hope that I do not have to continue with the pain that is truely challenging my quality of life....I really do just hope for something to help properly diagnosis me - so that an appropriate treatment plan can be inacted!
thanks for the ear and not sure if there is a question here, but just needed to get these thoughts out of my head -this friday appt, is always in the back of my head as i go thru my day.
