In 1998, I began to develop several chronic pain conditions. I went through the gamut of office visits, tests, ineffective meds and treatments. By 2006, my unrelieved, agonizing pains most often caused total debilitation. Pain ruled my life, yet I continued to be written off with ineffective medications and doctors’ indifference to address my pains effectively. However, eventually two outstanding, dedicated, professional physicians made a difference.
