Just out of curiosity Jay, has a doctor ever told you or written in his report that he thought your pain was all in your head? --No
If so, did he send you to a shrink... --Yes
...or just let you continue to deal with the pain? --No
The doc believed the pain was real, all right. He sent us to a shrink because he thought we could learn some behavioral pain control techniques, such as stress reduction, breathing techniques, and relaxation.
