... myopathy disease group? I have read many books, looked up current medical information through my library and it seems to not be a well know problem by physicians. I will soon be going to a pain management physician, but I am looking more for a cure than a band-aid. Should I be seeing a neurologist in addition to the pain management? I know I need physical therapy and trigger point injections, but I don't want to miss anything. This is my second bout with this problem. My first lasted 5-6 years due to misdiagnoses. This time I at least know what the problem is, but want to make sure I know and do all that is available. I would appreciate any advice or direction. Thanks! Krista
The Pain Management Physician you are going to, make sure is Certified in Pain Management. I was shocked how many physicians are out there claiming that they are Pain Management. But are only doctors that are ie: anesthesiologists, physicians of physicial therapy, internists. Don't get me wrong, they may have taken a class or two in this field but that is not enough.This limits their education in the field of Pain Management. Anesthesiologists for years was all we had. They know injection spots, how to put in a pump, but for long term control on the pain without becoming adicted, think twice. Go for the Certificated Physician. The Physician who has many, many classes, and a long written exam behind them, to be certified.
With that said, if you want more information on the subject of Fibromyalgia and Myofascial Pain, check Google Scholar and type in your disease.
There is no cure but yes, you are on the right track of controlling the pain.
I wish you a Pain Free Life
