My last doc. was awful and didn't believe in Fibro. I hope and pray this doctor is good because I can't take it anymore! I'm going to lose it on this guy if he pisses me off! I also have to drive 45 minutes away to see him! My Insurance group has a limited amount of pain doctors to choose from. I am on Subutex now but it really doesn't work so well for pain. I don't know if I should tell him this on the first visit. I posted this question B4 and I'm sorry that I'm posting it again but I am very nervous. Do you guys think I should tell him about the sub. just yet? I want to tell him the truth so badly but I don't want him thinking of me in any negative light. Most people that use Sub. are hard core addicts. I had a small problem getting off pain pills after my surgery so I found a doctor within my insurance who put me on Sub. He has now suggested that I stay on it for pain. I really don't want to be on it anymore. I need something that works better. So should I tell him that? I also just started on Neurontin after being on Lyrica due to price. I like Lyrica better I found out. That also doesn't cover all of the pain. I need something for breakthrough pain. Should I tell him all of this? Or just keep my mouth shut about pills and just tell him about my pain? Can someone please help me? I'm freaking out! I don't want to screw up with the only pain doctor that I have left in my health plan! Help!

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
My ENT sent me for more tests last week...one where they had me lie back in a chair, with blacked out goggles on so I couldn't see while they administered water into my ears one at a time ( first warm, then room-tempurature, then cold) while they video taped my eyes and asked me questions to determine how cognizant I was... This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
