When I went to the pain clinic for the first time...I was asked numerous questions, such as: Can you describe what it feels like? What do you do to help alleviate the pain? What makes it worse/better? Sitting/standing/laying down help? Does rest make it better/worse?
When I tried to explain that nothing seems to make it better- whether resting/walking/sitting, it hurts all day....from the time I open my eyes until I can FINALLY get to sleep...nothing makes it better...it hurts no matter what I do!! Some days are worse than others and some are better than others....she seemed confused?! She asked me the same type of question different times, in different ways....and all my answers were always the same....she seemed genuinely concerned, but confused....and jumped right on the ESI...which, the doc she works for, is his "thing"....which, btw- didn't do anything but make things worse...
I was wondering if anyone else here is the same? Nothing (sitting/laying down, etc..) you try seems to make it any better?
