I went to see a neurologist this last week and again like many other doctors I was told I was a hard case. My family doctor thought my pain could be due to nerves. I haven't been diagonosed with chronic pelvic pain but I have every symptom of it. I have been through several gyn's with no luck. I also had adhesions removed twice this year and a total hysterectomy due to endo and adenomyosis. I am now being sent to a PT doctor for a consultation this next week. I was also told by my Neurologist I need to start the paper work for SS disability since I have been fighting this pain since Oct. 08 and I havent been able to work since then. He gave me a permanent disability handycap sticker since I cant walk very far. My husband and I just had our 19 year anniversary and we spent it at the doctors all day. What fun :o(. Has anyone filed for disability for this? I know I have to see there doctor as well. I was just in shock when I was told to file. I guess more depressed thinking I'm going to be in this pain for the rest of my life. I will be 39 this year and I use to be sooooo active. Actually a work aholic. I spent so many hours at work my husband would call me to see when I was coming home or asked if he knew me cause he didnt see me very often. I was a manager for one of the largest retail stores in the United States. Now I'm trying to find something to keep me busy. No one is giving me an answer to what I have so I'm scared to file. What do I say when they ask...What do you have?..I'm not sure what to say or where to go next. Maybe I should try another gyn to tell me I have CPP. What should I do?? any help would be great or an area I havent tried. I have been to 2 pain specialist who wont touch me either. Thank you..xx Staci
