I've been in pain management for about two and a half months. Over these months, I've had 4 sets of injections all of which have worked, but not lasted longer than a week or so. My PM doc only does injections, pain med management (which I did sign a contract), and physical therapy. None of these seem to be really getting to the route cause of my pain. So I'm sitting here in not only pain in my lower lumbar area, but also up through my mid back, and neck. Since my surgery it seems that the rest of my spine is really in rough shape. I can't get into my PM doc until wednesday (which isn't even an appt. it's just a pick up of my monthly scripts since my doc is out of town for the holiday), and I'm nearly out of my meds. I just don't see this PM plan, really getting anywhere with treating and aleviating my pain. What in the world do I do? What do you do when the only treatments that your PM doc uses are not really working or going to treat the pain long term? I don't want to jepordize the realtionship and treatment that I'm currently receiving while trying to find another doctor, so...... how would you handle the situation?
