For the last 3 years I went to the clinic in the hospital. This month I qualified for medicare. Becasue of that I was able to find a real doctor of internal medicine. I went to see him yesterday. I discussed phantom pain first. I told him about what I was feeling and he told me that of course phantom pain was psychological. After all doesn't it bother me more when I am upset. I told him of course but being upset made all illnesses feel worse. He then took me off all my muscle relaxers and I didn't mind that. Then he changed my zoloft to another med saying it would work better. Then he said I only had to get my bloodwork once a month. The most I have ever had between blood work is 2 weeks and thats to keep my bypass in my other leg open. So I would like to discuss phantom pain and what everyone else was told by their doctor. I have read all the material on the net and I know I'm right about phantom pain. So why are they teaching doctors something else? It has to be their schooling.
