My pain levels have gotten pretty bad over the last few weeks. What I used to call my good days was a pain level of three, that was also my normal days. It would start at a three and generally end on a five. Now I'm starting at a five and ending at a seven for my good days and bad days are starting at a seven and getting up to a nine. I don't know why the sudden increase in pain, I'm not doing anything different. I miss my three to five days. I'm never comfortable anymore. I used to go lay in bed and read with my heat or ice pack to get comfortable but now laying is horrid. It hurts my hips so bad I can hardly stand it. Reclining in the chase is the most comfortable ut even that is incredibly painful. I dontnknow what to do anymore.
Tomorrow I go back to my pm dr but I'm so afraid he is just going to ignore me. He has gotten into that habit lately he just transcribes what I wrote on the forms and things about past visits and it makes me so mad. I try to ask him questions and he does his best to get around answering them. I think I need new medication because this percocet obviously isn't getting the job done. I'm in the processes of going to see a neurologist. I'm picking up my records tomorrow and hope to get answers from him. They keep telling me I'm too young for fusion. I'm not in a rush to have surgery I'm actually very afraid of it buti will notbsettle with them sayingim too youbg. I'm too young to have these problems but I do so my age is no longer a factor. I was told if I was fifty they would do the surgery. Then hebtells me it wouldn't help mevat all. So I'm left here wondering which is it, if I were older you would do it or it wouldn't help my pain at all. I'm just very frustrated at this point and want straight answers.
The point of this is do you have any advice on how to get through to my dr to getvthe treatment I need. I don't know what to do at this point. Maybe he will listen tomorrow and help me but I highly doubt he will so I would like any advice on how to handle tomorrow. I just needed to vent a little and get some advice, thank you in advance.
