It has been extremely frustrating to get treatment that has helped ease the pain. Have been denied medications for pain, have had innefective treatments, overdosed with narcotics that were way to strong, have been called a drug seeker. The only thing that has moderately helped me stay media branch blocks and radio frequency burning of nerve endings. When ever there has been turnover at the pain clinic I have to start back at square one with treatment!
