MRI scan results and referred to Pain clinic

Postby Dianeb » Sun Mar 10, 2013 1:48 am

Saw rheumy earlier this week and my MRI shows marked degeneration of my whole spine and confirms the loss of lordosis. There is nothing surgically that can be done so I've been referred to pain clinic and also OT to see if I can get back to work as I'm climbing the walls here.
She has said I do have chronic pain syndrome and explained about a ''switch tripping in my brain' and also chronic fatigue so I have to learn the pacing technique.

So I'm knackered officially and need to get procedures into place to help me live as normal a life as possible, Seeing the psychs later this week as I'm struggling to come to terms with this.

On a positive note, I pick up my new car this week and can't wait to have freedom again. Got a super trade in price on my manual and a small amount of finance in place which my mobility easily covers.

:goodluck1: with the pain clinic, having an auto car is much easier than an manual car, you will love it. Hope you will be able to manage you pain. :hugs:
