I had a consultation with a new pain management doctor, who suggested a treatment where he would burn the nerve endings with a heated needle, to eliminate pain. I don’t remember the name of the procedure but this is how it is carried out. I spoke to my mom who is a psychologist and she personally doesn’t approve of the treatment. She has a few patients who have already been through this treatment and were not happy with it in the long run. After listening to what she had to say, I too do not want to go for this treatment. But I am afraid that if I decide to not listen to what my doctor has to say about getting this treatment don, he might not want to treat or see me again. I just want to get my prescriptions on time and for that I have many a times complied with what doctor has to say. But this one really freaks me out. What if it causes other complications? I do understand that every doctor wants to treat the root cause and not just put a band aid on the wound in the form of pain killers, but my mind really does not approve of this treatment. My mom warned me that it causes more pain in the days to come. I am in between the deep sea and the devil now. I am okay with this band aid approach of treatment as it works well for me. Pills have been a relief in my case and I would like to continue with them. But how do I present it to my doctor without angering him? I am at a loss t understand that. Has anyone been through this nerve endings burning treatment? I f so, please guide me with your valuable suggestions. Please!!!
