Well, I finally found a doctor that I have faith in! I went to a pain clinic last week and the doctor was absolutley wonderful. He was straightforward, considerate and funny all at the same time. He is even going to fight with my insurance company to get them to cover Lyrica, which is IMO a wonder drug. My insurance company won't cover it because I don't have fibro but he is writing a letter of medical nessecity (sp??) so they will cover it! I'm so happy, I wish I had gone to him sooner. Even though his office is an hour from my house, I am going every 2 weeks to see him. He did agree with my Ortho doc that I need surgery. I was kinda hoping that I didn't, but I guess that's inevitable now. I'm just glad to finally have some faith and trust in a doctor. It's been a rough road with doctors for me and I'm sure there are many of you who can relate. I just wanted to share some happy news.
