The doctor I saw at the pain clinic was very, very nice. But he didn’t have a lot of encouraging words for me.
Basically he said there isn’t really a fix for me except surgery, although even that isn’t a fix per say, but more of a more permanent correction for the pain.
As far as what the pain clinic can do, he offered a cervical epidural but my insurance requires I try physical therapy first before they will pay for injections. Although an epidural isn’t a fix either, just a fix for the pain. I’m not sure what PT does for this, I guess I will find out. I’m a little nervous though, as PT’s around here are full with months of waiting lists, so who knows when I’d even be able to start treatment.
