I am really getting tires of Doctors shoving a patient from one thing to another. I have tried Vicodin, Ultram, muscle relaxers, naproxen, heat, cold, long showers. Nothing works. Have degenerative joint disease and scoliosis. Starting therapy soon. I had therapy before shoulder surgery 3 years ago and it did not work..thus surgery. After surgery worked well. I really hate being drug around. He hasn't had me have MRI yet. Which is best..keep seeing him and wait or try to get referral to pain clinic ?
