I feel your pain! I went in for a pain block for a ruptured disk in my back and now the disk space they went into for the block is the most painful part of my back! I read through your entire post and can tell you are in pain and that impacts our ability to think and speak and problem solve because all we can do is concentrate on the pain! I've been dealing with my pain management since 1998. I realized very quickly I needed to do my own research before going to my doctor. I love my doctor! She does research with me! If you don't like your doc and you aren't being treated well find a new one!!! A lot of docs don't like to treat pain because there is no cure and no good outcome. If you are like me you just want to get the pain to a manageable level. I stay around a 5 or 6 but it does make a difference in quality of life! We will never be pain free! I applied for disability and was turned down 3 times! You really need a disability attorney to guide you through the system and it helps keep you from being turned down. Disability attorneys do not charge you unless they win. If you are turned down try again!!!! This is a long process so in the meantime you should be following other avenues! This could also be a malpractice suit so you need to talk to the attorney about that! Go online and search for pain management specialists. I personally didn't like the pain guy I found and went back to my primary care physician. I researched treatment plans and we started with Lortab's but they don't touch pain sometimes and they mess up your liver!! Oxycontin was better and lasts for 12 hours instead of 8. If I was you I would try going to a chiropractor and if that doesn't work try accupuncture. It is being practiced in the states much more than it used to. Physical Therapy could also help with the limitation of motion and pain in your neck! Pinched nerves can cause referred pain which is pain that occurs away from the point of pinched nerves. For example I have nerves pinched in my upper back and neck but the pain radiates out across my back and down my arms and down my legs. My doctor and I finally settled on Fentanyl/Duragesic patches which I wear for 3 days and I get a slow release of medicine over 72 hours. It has been a blessing for me. I am still in pain but my levels are manageable.
Do your research!! Check and see if your doctor has any malpractice suits against them and if any of them are from the same problem. Research your symptoms and work with your doctor on trying different approaches. You'd be amazed at what chiropractic can do if you have disks out of place. You have to go for several sessions and give it a chance to work! Also check out the chiropractor you choose for malpractice or law suits. One think you might think is silly is keeping a migraine calendar. Write down what you eat every day and see if you are triggering your migraines. Seems simple but there is a long list of foods that your body may be reacting to and your body response is head and neck pain!
But first! Find a good disability lawyer. Get the process started. If you win they pay you from the day you apply for it so if it takes you 3 years to be approved you get back pay for 3 years!
