Ok so a few weeks ago I went and seen a psychologist before I start my trail for the scs-spinal cord stimulator. She recommended me to see a psychiatrist a few times before they would proceed with the SCS.
My appointment was today at 1:pm I showed up on time expecting to see the psychiatrist. Do u think that’s what happened??? NO!!! this is yet ANOTHER! Pain management program place… I feel as if I have been blind sided by my own doctors. I have lost trust in them. The Dr. said in order for me to see the psychiatrist they needed a full visual of me and how I function. WHAT DOES SEEING A PSYCHIATRIST HAVE TO DO WITH HOW I MOVE!!! I’m so upset right now this place was throwing appt after appt at me and I have no idea what they are for. I’m so confused now on what im supposed to be doing… is this for the scs anymore I have NO idea. I have been through 2 other pain management programs in the past the most recent was Nov 09 so 5 months ago.. I was there for 2 weeks and ended due to it causing more pain than good.. So my question is why would they send me to another stupid pain management program when all the others have failed… I can not express this enough to my doctors… I’M ACTIVE I do what I’m supposed to do. I walk every morning I do my core strengthening 2-3 times a day stretches 2-3 times a day all depending on how I feel at the time… I’m getting the feeling no one is out there to listen to me.. Today has been a total let down by my Doctors.. I was un-prepared for such a thing mentally blindsided by the ones who are supposed to take care of me… my stress went through the roof heart rate was rapid I almost had a panic attack right in the office… I’m so stressed right now I don’t know what to do. I’ve been crying sense I got in my truck to leave… idk maybe I’m over reacting but I’ve been pushed into a corner her by these people they tell me there names but I can’t hear them I’m in a state of depression anxiety and stress this is my nightmare over and over again doing these pain management programs that never seem to work for me.. It’s not that I’m weak in my back I have plenty of muscle it just hurts to do stuff why can’t they comprehend this… I do have some weakness in my right leg I can try to work on that more… there has to be something different out there other than pain management programs that could maybe help me… why would insurance companies continue to pay for procedures that have yet top help me out in the past,… does the phrase what works for one might not work for the other mean anything to Doctors???
My day is shot to hell I’m so stressed….
