I was scheduled for an epidural block 3 weeks ago and was given sedation meds. As soon as they gave them to me, the doc started doing the block. Needless to say, I was not sedated and started crying very badly. She got angry and refused to do the block. She now says that she will not do another one until I have desentization training for the pschiatrist on her staff. This really upsets me because it was their fault for not giving the medication time to work before starting the block. I tried to talk with her about this and of course, it was all my fault and none of hers.
I wish doctors would understand that people with fibormyalgia react and respond differently to things. Any time I have any type of sedation medication, whether it be before surgery, blocks, or at the sedation dentist, it takes my body twice as long as a normal person to respond to it.
This has me really down in the dumps because I love the way my doc has made my neck better with radio frequency but I don't love the impatience she has with me. I guess I just need to vent.
