I just wanted to say that I feel for you!
I myself have suffered for years from pain & my story is almost identical to yours. I just came online to look up pain clinics in mass, as I have been getting cortisone injections every 8 weeks, of which I got today and am literally in so much more pain tonight which I'm not sure if it's actually just soreness from the actual needles or if it is a nerve problem from the pain. Either way, like you I feel as though my doctor doesn't believe me or care & am leary to even go back tomorrow & tell him that I am in excruciating pain now & literally cannot walk. (my shots were in my neck (for arthritis, herniated discs, & fibromyalgia) & my hip/rear for bursitis & sciatica from lower lumbar spondylosis.)
Anyway, good luck to you & hang in there! If it weren't for my daughter I couldn't wake up every day & would also be ready to give up View Thread
