I have suffered for 20 years with back pain and fibromyalgia. I have sciatic nerve pain and facet joint pain.
I see a pain management doctor and have had every injection and epidural known to this doctor. I have had no relief. He does not believe in pain medicine, so I have been left to suffer.
I have had to quit working, I can't go out socially, I am almost totally bedridden.
Last Saturday I began thinking about suicide for the pain has become unbearable and I see no help in sight.
How does one find a doctor who realizes that some people need to live on medication to have a life?
