From this study (4 months ago):
i want to know if its the medication or if i have more than that this just started about 6 months ago. and its getting worse.
From this study (6 months ago):
The only time the pain is partially releaved is lying in a prone position with heat on my posterior neck and the back of my head. The pain strats in my shoulders and neck and radiates up the back of my head.
From this study (1 year ago):
I cannot seem to find the right Dr. I have had two great dr.'s and both in a timely manner left so I am in a middle of the road county clinic with a very un-happy dr. who does not listen to what I am saying. These conditions are not new to me and were treated very well until I lost my prior Docs. I have great insurance, in fact almost as good as it can get for a disabled person and the doctor assigned to me basically re-arranged my meds and made chronic decisions without even seeing my records. All the regular medications, maintenace medications I was taking are gone now and I was left with what I have listed. unless someone has any advice, I am going to file a grievence and let my Insurance company find me a doctor. Its almost like playing the lottery. Oh, on another note. This same doctor opened an incision on my inner highest thigh without numbing me first. Said it would do no good. Wow, he also carved down a 1/4 inch then extended it, packed with iodine gauze and handed me 3 oversized bandages. Then refused adequate medication. I know they heard me screaming in the waiting room. I want a real doctor! A~
