Hi all, it’s been a while since I lasted posted on here, that’s mostly because life took over. I was referred to the Pain Management Programme by the Pain Clinic and I can honestly say it was the biggest waste of time. I went for my assessment and spoke to a Doctor, Psychiatrist and a Physio separately but they must have spent a little over 5 minutes each assessing me. A week later they have decided that I wouldn't benefit from being placed on the programme. Now I'm in limbo as they have discharged me from their services and I cannot get any sense from the Pain Clinic as to whether or not I am still under their service and if I am to expect another appointment with the doctor there. My GPs is pretty dismissive of my pain at the best of times as to quote them “I can walk unaided” so therefore my pain isn't too bad =(. Apologises for going on I'm just feeling fed up of being passed between pillar and post yet I'm still none of the wiser as to the cause of my pain or if there’s actually anything that can be done to make it manageable. Most of the time my GP’s answer is they will put me on the sick even though I manage to work full time and I have repeatedly told them that I have understanding bosses who allow me to work from home if I am feeling too rough. Most of the time I can manage my pain well enough that it doesn't affect my day to day life but lately everything seems to be taking its toll on me. I'm starting to feel like I'm a burden on those around me.
