My pain Dr sent me to see a pain psychiatrist in his office. He has not given me any pain medication, so I am wondering if he thinks I'm faking it. I have been having pain for over 2 yrs. and the discogram shows annular tears at L4 and L5. Neurosurgeon is recommending disc replacement. I am at my ropes end. Any thoughts or ideas on how I need to deal with this. Pain is so bad that I toss and turn all night. I wear a tinge unit at work every day, I deliver the mail and I couldn't make it through the day without it. I come home and am unable to do anything else. My husband does all the housework, laundry. By the time I get my job done every day and if I am lucky I feel well enough to cook supper. Someone else always has to clean up I am so miserable. Where do I go from here?
