... happen sooner or later, just didn't expect it to occur right before my trip. But I have another appt with a new pain doc in January. Me and the old doc just couldn't agree on anything. Tried to do 'things' his way and my pain kept getting worse. In addition, I know what has worked in the past and I am not in the least subtle. This most recent doc didn't even look at my old records. Can anyone tell me how severe nerve damage and cervical and lumbar stenosis miraculously disappear? Big question now is how to act with new doc, a moron, imbecile or cretin? I need some help here. My doc in Arkansas thought I was his best patient. Anything?
