Welcome to our Pain Mangement Forum at MedHelp. I am glad that you found us and took the time to post. I am very sorry to hear about your long term pain. You are so young to know the meaning of Chronic Pain.
You've asked a tough question. How long has it been since you had a good clinical evaluation? How long has it been since you have had imaging? If it has been more than six months I beleive I would ask for more recent images to see where you are in the disease process.
If your physicians can offer you nothing more in the terms of treatment I would than request a referral to a Pain Mangement Physician. Life is too short to live with un-managed pain. As you said it is time to bring more activity into your life.
I wish you the very best and hope that you will soon find releif. Please keep in touch and let us know how you are doing.
Thank you & God bless.Do you know how i can go about requesting my hospital records so i show prove to my new doctor i will have schedule to meet soon.Im not sure were i go to get my past records.
All you have to do is contact the clinic and request to records department to obtain your medical records. In all likelihood you will have to sign a release form.
It's an easy process.
