    The shrink thinks he wasnt to send me to a pain management center. Personally I dont see the point. I have my cfs/fm specialist, my reg,GP, him who basicly is useless to me.

    plus the other band of merry men of Doctors the go with this stuff.

    It seems all I do is go to dr's.

    I'm sure there are a lot of good ones out there. But my experince with one was terrible.

    He basically told me I was depressed and needed ad's, not pain medication. Laughed at me when I told him ad's were hard to get off of also and wanted to know why I would want to.

    He also gave me the date rape drug, Ketamine, which helps alot of ppl in England, where is more available. It kept me awake most of the night instead of helping me sleep.

    Anyway, like I said, I'm sure there are good ones that know a lot about FM.

    Good luck. Hugs..........
