I Am a Chronic Pain Sufferer
I Suffer From Chronic Pain--I have had fibromyalgia for years plus I have degenerative disc disease in my back & arthritis in my feet & ankles. In December, I had a spinal fusion & it's helped a lot but I knew from the beginning that the surgery wouldn't completely solve it, just help it. I'm going to be having my 3rd surgery on my right foot later this year. I had a doctor that doesn't believe in artificial joints for the foot so I had 2 useless surgeries before finding someone else. So, I have 3 sources of pain I deal with & an idiot for a doctor. At first, she was as sweet as can be & then all of a sudden, she turned into a witch & doesn't like narcotic pain meds & thinks since I had back surgery I shouldn't have pain & she tries to tell me when to have my foot operated on & just thinks surgery wipes everything away & I should just be treated for Fibro. But, I keep plugging away & I try & find my own solutions.
