[font=Comic Sans MS]Hello CD65, it's nice to hear that you are still going strong!!!

I personally have never gone to a pain psychologist, but I have heard of them, and it was recommended to me that
I go see one.....
Basically they idea is, is that there is a connection between the mind and body, and body and mind, when we
experience pain. When we experience chronic pain, there tends to be more turmoil that accompanies it. And with
good reason. Chronic pain can be very emotionally exhausting. I attatched a couple of links that I hope will clear
things up for you a little bit, and hopefully help you understand why your doctor may think that this is the best
course of action for you. It basically treats the emotional/mind side of it, to make the chronic PHYSICAL PAIN
lessend. ... ogist-2611

This link basically explains WHY you would need a pain psychologist.

This one basically explains what it is that the pain psychologist would do, and why it is beneficial to patients
with long term ailments that cause chronic pain.

I found them to be very informative, and interesting. I myself, have never been to one. After reading up on it,
I think I just may give it a shot. After all, it's not like they will put me in more pain..... But they just may be able
to teach me how to deal with the emotional/traumatic aspects of having chronic pain.

I hope that this helps. If you do end up going, will you post and let us know what you thought, what they did,
and if you think that it will be beneficial.....Good luck to you, and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!![/font]
