Firstly I will apologize IF I'm asking a question that has been answered before in the forum. To be honest, sitting on my hiney kills so I am not able to research for long.
My question is this, I went to see a pain management dr last night for the 1st time and he suggested tpi instead of the other ones the neuro suggested. He said I had myofacial pain (sp?) and it would be better to have the tpi done..and he said he could do them himself. The other dr was sending me to a anethetist that specialised in the injections (epi and facet) so I don't know?
And from what I have read on the boards it seems that your pain management drs take care of your meds..he just asked what I was taking and how often, was it working and whatnot? No mention of anything other then I told him the neuro wanted me to take the Cymbalta and he offered his opinion. I told him how very afraid I am to take it and he said don't. Why not try these things first if you are that concerened. But he didn't write a new med script. Maybe it's different in Canada? I see my family dr for the meds now, so I am unsure and I don't see the pain dr until December!
Any words? Again sorry if it's been touched upon, I'm not trying to annoy anyone, thanks guys!
