Recently I went to my pain clinic, and with my usual failing to read situation, got myself discharged, as what I meant was , (I thought he was uncomfortable) one thing ,but he thought I meant something else, and it was not until I talked to my GP that I realised, what happened. Because I'm not fine, but on the day I'd seen him I just wanted to get out of there, so may have given wrong signals.
Anyone living with pain knows that minute to minute and hour to hour there is an up and down level of the pain , and the managing of it fluctuates and I'm now worried that as my pain is fluctuating so much now that I should be given something else to try, as Tapendaton is not doing what It once did and the just doubling up is having an impact on my liver and Kidneys . as the pains at the back of my neck and face are becoming so unbearable and at least two nights kept me up, and like I've done for as long as I can remember, I could not get out a true picture and into my mouth to explain properly.
I'm not blaming the consultant, as he is not to know how my neurotic working brain processes info.
But I know it is the human condition, this failure to communicate (in so many ways) is not just about information, there are wrapped up within the talking process, a whole lot of other thing's going on, and that's how in criminal trials, the scientific evidence becomes paramount, because that is less likely to be contaminated by the human condition of the selective memory, that is so much relied on ,and abused so much by those in a position to slant the information, to only give their point credence over someone who may not have access too, or the learning, to get at the truth, especially when dealing with overly powerful institutions, who will go to great lengths to hide , or to collude to avoid the obvious.
Not wanting to be too mysterious, I would love to hear from others of how maybe their failure to communicate has affected their consultations.
