Thanks for your replies Ronnie. I was on pain meds which helped but my Rheumy retired recently and am now being pushed off to a Pain Management center which I don't have much hope for. I understand you not getting used to the pain, I have had fibro for over 26 years and it has been a challenge to say the least. Good luck to you and hang in there!

The first pain management doctor I saw said he didn't "believe" in fibro, like it was the tooth fairy or such. Not been too optimistic about them since that horrible experience.

The difficulty with pain management doctors is that many of them do not believe in fibromyalgia. You kind of need to be your own doctor and determine what it is that works for you and how you can manage. This can involve doing physio, daily exercise, or trying out different western and eastern medicines to cope with the pain. Sadly, I don't think it ever goes away...

Woops the exact same thing happened to me! Too bad they always want to find the easy way out! That's why I dislike pain clinics... It's all because you are depressed and need to get over it! Yeah right! The only thing that is depressing me is how sick I am!
