Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.

Pain Psychologist???

Today was the day!  My husband and I headed to the Neurological Department at the University of Utah with the hope that there might be something that they could offer….some slight glimmer of hope…that would help with my disabling, pain and other symptoms of Fibromyalgia/Polyarthralgia/Chronic Pain Disorder.

After about three hours of reviewing medical history, symptoms and enduring the painful exam……I hear those dreaded words….”Due to your unique situation (the extremely sensitive intestinal issues I have) there is nothing we can do”…..”We wish we could give you a better idea of why you are feeling like you are….but your conditions are not understood”….”The pain and the symptoms you are experiencing are not related to nerve damage or muscle damage”…..”The loss of memory is not neurological”.

So yes….what I know….I AM NOT CRAZY….was confirmed!  LOL

The only suggestion that was given was to see a “Pain Psychologist”.  I am now researching….I have also asked on a couple of Fibro Forums if anyone dealing with Fibro has had success with this type of treatment…..

If you are reading this….and you have seen a Pain Psychologist….I would really appreciate your input as to if you feel it helped or not!
