I received a call from my case manager with UnumProvident and she asked me if the doctor and I have discussed physical therapy as a treatment for me. I responded that we had not. This is the second time she has mentioned physical therapy in our discussions. I was wondering if anyone had any good results from physical therapy. I haven't kept up with an exercise regimen since my FMS/CFS onset about 3 years ago, but I am still relatively strong. But the fatigue and the pain are the problems. Will physical therapy really help this, or is it something the insurance company wants to use on their behalf? I can do many things, I choose not too however due to the pain. I have learned not to push myself. If they want to measure my exercise tolerance that is fine, but are they also going to measure the pain? Another way to look at it...I am physically capable of sticking a needle in my eye, but I choose not to.
