Tomorrow marks another trip to the pain management doctor. I’m scared. Then again, I’m always scared. There’s an anxiety from pain management appointments that is to be expected. Hello, you’re going into a place knowing you are likely to be getting a TON of injections or an injection that goes far into a muscle, joint, […]

For those that have been following my @mommyjenna on Twitter account, I’m sure you’ve seen the lovely issue I’ve been having with my back recently. Simply put, it sucks! I started having pain the best way to describe it is right where the lower ribs meet spine. At first, it was sporadic, coming and going. […]

I have another trigger point injection appointment today. I’m not as nervous as I have been. This past time, I think it made a difference BUT, the steroid effects right after the appointment those first few days were brutal. I had a fever, I was HOT to touch, and just felt very sick. It sucked. […]

Friday, I met my new pain management specialist/anesthesiologist. It’s become a general idea that we will continue with trigger point injections so long as I feel like they are helping. There is a possibility of needing something more such as an epidural block but no point putting myself through more than necessary, right? I can […]

Since the first time I was referred to Iowa City, quite honestly, I was given hell by everyone about, “Why do you have to go so far? You need to go somewhere closer.” Really? Um because if I had a choice yeah, I’d totally pick the god awful long drive to get injections and the […]

Since about a week before Christmas, I have been in a pain flare-up. I’ve had a constant headache but it keeps wavering back and forth. I got thinking about it and honestly, I need to stop referring to my headaches as migraine as if I tell you I am diagnosed with chronic daily headaches-that probably […]

Since my last trigger point injection appointment, I started physical therapy again at a new clinic. I was really hesitant to go at it again but they told me to do it. Fine. Luckily, I have been very happy with my physical therapy through the clinic here in Nevada. I actually feel like I’m being […]

On Monday, my cousin went with me to Iowa City for another appointment with my Pain Medicine Specialists. Overall, I have felt a difference since the first injections. A few weeks ago, I started feeling more pain and having issues again but, I knew the things wouldn’t last forever. Now anyone that knows me understands […]

I know I have been naughty in not updating about my Center for Pain Medicine appointment but I haven’t been sure to explain how it went and what it was. I was scared. I figured we’d have a huge wait. Luckily, the nurse was calling me back into a room before I was even done […]
