PAIN MANAGEMENT

Postby sjc » Fri Nov 19, 2010 1:08 am

HELLO, FOLKS! Hope you all ok. Just wondering if you have ever had pain management. If so, where and what did you receive? Was it good or bad? I have just been transferred to Royal Derby Hospital recently. Originally, I went to Nottingham Hospital, but I find the pain consultant at nottingham hospital a nice lady but not very thorough. However, derby hospital seems alot more better. In the last week since my first visit, the lady who saw me has now referred me to the things I asked, i.e., physio, pain consultancy on injections, counselling, etc. And they are more understanding. So I am quite happy with this. Yet, when I go and see mental specialists for my anxiety/autism, they are pretty useless if I am to be hönest. How can one nhs area be more better then the other? Take care folks. :wave:

Hi there sjc I am going to pain managment, everyone take what they can with these classes, sorry to say for me the talking was not very helpful for ME, I know what to do when i have a flare up, everyone is different with there pain and deal with it there way, a lot of the group talked about topping there drugs up, sorry i dont take much drugs because when i was they were not doing anything for me, but they do help you to get other things like, am having accupuncture, that helped ME for about a week the last time i had it, so if i can get a week or more without bad pain then i will take it, am getting it done at the hospital, hope this helps you, and :goodluck1: with specialist.

I went on a pain management course this year I managed 5 out of the 8 weeks. I have to say that I did not find it at all helpful to me, to have to sit there for 2 hours and listen to them talking about pacing yourself, how to deal with the stress of pain etc etc nearly killed me as I have something called coccydynia its inflamation of the coccyx and makes it incrediabley painful for me to sit longer than about 15 mins at a time. Although they said you could get up if you needed too.. I just didnt feel comfortable getting up and down all the time as doing that causes pain in my back and hips. We then did 30 mins of exercise and then meditation at the end. They were not really telling me anything I didnt already know.. I do however think you have to do it just so you have tried it.

PAIN MANAGEMENT

Hi, everyone. Thanxs 4 ur replies. To be honest, I know what u mean. I have tried physio and exercizes and talking therapy stuff when I first started with FM, and it didn't even work abit. The only thing I am glad 4 is the hospital may help me with intravenous injections in my trigger points, hydrotherapy and accupuncture. I think with fibro, there is not alot docs can do, sadly.

Hi

I did the course sept/oct like others said a lot of it we new, for me it was useful to find that I was on the right track. I think also we had a good group of people and I dis come away with some useful stuff :D

So I would defiantly recommend someone to go on it :D
