I have been attending the pain clinic for a number of years now, recently my conditions have became acute! I have degenerative disc disease bulging discs nerve impingement and fibromyalgia.
My last appointment was in January where I was suffering badly with my neck shoulder and unable to raise my left arm, my consultant arranged a referral for a scan, after many weeks of waiting I telephoned to find out nobody knew what happened to my referral or where it was, I was told to ring various depts. eventually it was found , I had my scan at north Tyneside hospital again after many follow up calls to was sent the report with no explanation no follow up no treatment plan nothing!
Again I tried to call to find out what was happening I was told by the secretary they would get the consultant to ring or write about have had nothing! I had to google words off the scan report to try and understand it! Needless to say I am so distressed and still in so much pain. Today I emailed PALS and I'm hoping for something to happen maybe a referral to a specialist who can help me. To say I'm upset with the pain clinic is an understatement!
