And welcome to the board. I'm sure everyone will agree that we know what
you are talking about when you say you're getting frustrated with your
doctor. My family doctor will not prescribe anything stronger than
Ibuprofen for me, she just keeps raising the daily dose. And as I
mentioned in my last post, the surgeon she referred me to for treatment of
my pelvic adhesions told me point blank "adhesions don't cause pain". I
felt like replying "And bears don't s*** in the woods and the Pope is
Jewish," but I kept my mouth shut and took his advice - which turned out to
cause me more pain than I was already in. I am now waiting to hear back
from my family doctor about a second referral.
I also think you may be right on being better off with your hot water
bottle, as it is easier to cuddle than a TENS unit ;) Cuddling is
something I find comforting, even if it doesn't ease the pain, but I
usually cuddle a cat.
God bless and ease your pain.
