I was seen twice recently by a Dr. And a NP. Finally got a new name for my condition as well. The first Dr. I saw looked me squarely in the eye and told me I will be in pain the rest of my life! Also, I am not a candidate for shots and she referred me to another pain clinic for " meds". So, went to clinic and they changed my meds, some of them, and scheduled accupuncture, an emg and trigger point injections.
I was unsure what to expect, but am sort of glad that I know more about what's been going on with my neck. The pain is only partly managed now and I was told I have to wait for emg to get any more pain relief. So, part of me is relieved and a new chapter opens for me to live out.
Myofasial Pain Syndrome is a unique condition that I developed after an injury at work. What's next?
