Anyoone from Tallhassee, FL

Hello, my name is Hua and I live in Tallahassee, FL. I suffered from back/shoulder pain for almost a year, and visited many doctors and specialists, who couldn't figured out what causes the pain and how to relieve it. Right now I am quite consumed with pain, and quite depressed. Looking for some advice, preferably someone from Tallahassee as well. Thank you!

    Hello...
    Curious...are you working with a pain management doctor for your high level of pain?

    Yes, I have seen a pain management doctor (Dr. EDIT) and he gave me a facet joint injection. It was quite painful, but the injection doesn't help, instead it made my back more sore, and I am now living with a lot of pain and NO diagnosis.

    Hello....
    My primary tried working with my pain two years before referring me to pain management.
    Best thing for me!

    It is trial and try again re finding cause/source of pain...and then again to find treatments to take edge off of pain.
    When I went to PM, he did tests on me that I had not even heard of at that time...and helped find treatments that were effective in lessening pain.

    I continue to see my PM every month as he continues to monitor my symptoms and treatments.

    I have just read your medical history and I am sorry to see you have to live with so many health problems. Must be awful living with all the pain all these years. I suffered the pain for about a year, and the doctor couldn't figured out the underlying issue. X-ray and MRI results are normal.
