So I’ve had phn now for 7 years, in the last 6 months I have had chronic pain and back in spasm on my right side of my back. I’ve had trigger point injections that have not helped and I’ve just seen a neurologist. He’s refering me to a brain psychologist as he believes where I’ve been in pain for so long my brain is believing the pain (spasm in right side of back) has gone but my brain still believes it’s there? I’m so confused. Part of me understands what he means and it could well be the case but I’m overwhelmed by the thought of it. Can phn make you feel this way and trick your brain into believing this is pain when there isn’t?
