I have had chronic back/leg pain for 16 months. I have tried everything, Meds, Physio and Pain clinic. They think that something like a disc went over a nerve but they won't give me a scan yet! I have read about hypnotherpy and pain over the net. It claims to make pain seem better. Has anyone tried it? Does it work? as it is expensive but I am getting really desperate now
Welcome to this forum and the wonderful people who post here and try to help each other.
I can not give you any advice regarding hypnotherpy unfortunately.
You state "they won't give me a scan yet". Do I understand correctly that your doctors have not okayed for you to have X-rays and an MRI scan? If that is the case, then I will highly recommended that you see a highly respected neurologist/spinal surgeon and have them authorize for you to have an MRI. Without an MRI and X-rays the doctors are just going to be guessing.
Do search out the very best neurologist/spinal surgeon that you can find in your area.
Please do correct me if I do not understand your post correctly.
Many thanks for the reply. I live in the UK so we get our heathcare under the NHS system. As it is tax payers money it is very political. My X ray came back normal so I was fobbed off for a bit even though my physio wanted me to get an MRI If the pain clinic can't help me then I may get refered to a specialist to get on the waiting list for an MRI. I may get one done privately as after all this time I still do not know for sure what is wrong and it is affecting my attendance at work.
