The pain doctors always make me think they are the best and then they seem to wake up in a different world the next time you see see them after finding something that works they will start trying to give me shots in my neck which I have had and it caused more problems than answers This was one thing I had told them but they seem to be put off when you tell them that the medical community does not approve of these shots or the neurologist would give them. By the way my problem is sever and chronic back pain have had surgeries and each has left me with lease mobility and more pain they still tried to get me to get 4 to 7 vib fused .
