I was fired by my pain management doc after about 8 months with him.

"You are too mobile to be having the kind or pain you are reporting", he said.

About a month later, I leaned my head forward to rinse my hair in the shower and my left leg went numb. Thanks Doc. I liked getting some vindication, but that is worth little after the humiliation of being fired by the doc and the indignities I ran into when shopping for another. I can't write more now, but there is another worthwhile story there.
