My pain Dr can't seem to find the area that my pain is coming from, so we keep playing with meds, keep turning up my pump, doing more injections...all these things that are not helping !

So here i am again laying on my cot that i moved to from the couch after the lazy boy chair, and after the bed and the floor...wishing I could get down to the basement to the chainsaw to just cut off these legs that are hurting so bad tonight.

When I call for an office appt I'm told no openings for a week so I have to go to the ER and they don't know what to do for me when I already have a fentynl pump that's not helping !!! OMG !! I'm so at the end of my rope here. I feel like they are never going to figure this out. Its getting worse every month !! I can't even get through a grocery shopping trip anymore. My life just sucks ! This is not living, this is hell ! Mayo won't see me cause my pain Dr sent info to them and after they reviewed it they said they don't think they could do any more for me ?!?! Hmm...

I can't get a referral back to my surgeon who did my fusion (need one since its been more than a year since last visit-dumb) because my pain Dr says I don't have anything surgical going on !!! Hmm who really knows though... I think its worth letting the guy look who did the surgery in the first place see if things are still as they should be as far as hardware and such !

I just feel like I'm being blown off, like something is really wrong inside my back, or hips, or bones...and no one will hear me and I'm so angry, hurt, scared, frustrated, discouraged and I don't know which way to turn any more. I'm worried I won't be heard no matter who I talk to anymore. I'm just to tired of hurting any more to try to make it stop ... :'(
