How does one go about finding a good match for a PM doctor?
I've read countless stories of people let down, treated like they're addicts, and other such stories that I'm frightened of making appointments with these guys.
Whoever I see I need to work with me and understand me. For instance, epidural style injections are out of the question. I do not want a needle anywhere near my spine. It's a worst fear kind of thing. I could probably deal with trigger point injections, but not easily. I don't know how else to explain it, but the very thought sends shivers down my spine (no pun).
I'm not even sure of other treatments that do not involve a needle and your spine. Every PM clinic's website I visit only seem to offer these treatments. I've read about spinal decompression treatments that do not involve needles, etc.
If you're curious about any medical history just ask. Otherwise I will not bore, but I've jumped through all of the hoops, both lumbar and cervical MRI's, currently treated by family doctor. I need to pursue a different treatment because what I'm doing is not enough. Some days are good, but the ones that are not make life he*l.
Thank you very much in advance.
