    If he or she is a "pain" doctor they should believe you. Why else would you be there? Seriously, if they at all doubt you, walk out the door. Do not waste your time and money on someone. Don't get defensive - just say that you will see someone who is more knowledgeable than they are and leave. They shouldn't put YOU on the defensive - you should put THEM on the defensive. What are they there for, if not to treat pain, huh?

    you should have these lists, they helped me w/my pain Doc, because I documented everything, he did believe me. Otherwise I think he might not of. and he also saw that I was trying everything such as exercise, heat, ice, biofeedback, relaxation, etc...
    Pain Diary
    activities diary(what you did during the day or could not do)
    exercise diary
    sleep diary
    pain management plan
    I copied these sheets in multiples from a fibromyalgia book I bought, they are from the arthritis foundation'
    I will keep you in my prayers. Just be yourself and try not to get emotional, I think DOcs relate to this better, Just my opinion, God bless, keep us posted! Iggy
