Alright gang here’s the deal I went to the “teen PRC [pain rehabilitation center]” as referred by my doctor. I met a very nice psychologist, we discussed my situation and he told me that pain rehab was really all there was left for me to do. I asked what kind of doctor I needed to find to perhaps prescribe me something weaker than Vicodin (Like tramadol) and who would be dealing with my Lyrica. He didn’t really answer me on that front which I found frustrating. He did however pick up on my personality and said that he suspected that I only had two speeds, 110% or 0%. He told me that I needed to start accepting my limitations and need to slowly work my way back to normality. He said that he felt going to the specialty fibromyalgia program would be a mistake as they mostly dealt with diagnosing followed by a two-day cram session of how to cope. He instead referred me to the Adult PRC program (he said he felt I would connect better with adult patients, which is right) that is 3 weeks long and very intensive. He then told me that it was booked solid and that I probably would have to wait a decent amount of time. We went to scheduling where they told me that the earliest they could see me was late August. In short there is no way for me to do this without missing school. I’m not going to lie it was really disappointing to me that there wasn’t more that could be done with my case for the time being. Hearing that I had to wait for more help made me want to cry but I know there’s not much else they can do and that it isn’t anyones fault.
Pending a set date I will be returning to Mayo Clinic for PRC in the fall.
Sorry I don’t have better news
My MRI results are in and confirm no synovial inflammation they did however find “a small ganglion cyst just medial to the ulnar base of the 5th finger proximal phalanx”, I’ve had a cyst in my wrist before so it’s not really anything new.
