I already have osteoarthritis in the bottom of my back and in my big toes. But I'm having terrible pain in the back of my neck on a daily basis. My finger joints and the base of my thumb. Also burning hot pain in my knees.

Pain clinic - first appointment.


I have my first appointment at the pain clinic soon. I am just wondering if anybody could share their experiences of their first appointment at the pain clinic and experiences of the pain clinic in general. Do they take bloods or do any tests etc or is that left for your doctor to do? I just want to know what to expect. Thank you.
