Its been a battle with pain. I had a fall at work in march 2014. Thinking that it was a minor injury I tried to take it easy and let my back heal. Well the pain got to bad and I was starting to lean forward. Turned out I had a 2 pretty good compression fractor and had to get a fusion from T4-T10 in dec 2014. It did nothing for the pain, But my spine is stable. Of course like all the doctors say, You should be fine after 3 months? But nothing is feeling better. At 7 months into this, I am seeing a pain management doctor for the last 2 months. Pills and shots are what he does. The last time I was there I asked if he was treating me for the right reason? I said to him, It does not feel like nerve or muscle damage. More like a stress on my spine or hardware issue. And asked if he seen my mri or ct? He said no, but had the reports of them. Then he came back into the room and said I should go and see a pain psychologist? I was like what?? He said I dont think your crazy and he is not that kind of doctor. But, That he wants me to be able to live a normal life, and he could help me . Has anyone went to a pain psychologist? I know my back is messed up and might never be the same. Was close to being paralyzed. And was told thats there is really no fix for me. Just stabilized. I can deal with that. Its the everyday pain thats hard.
