  • Have you had them injected to see if they are the probably source of your pain?
  • saw a pain management doctor today now so confused about everything. ugh why do i have to have three different doctors saying three different things. sssssssssssoooooooooooooo confused. pain dr says i'm one of the few that benifits from a durgesic patch and it would probably be a good idea to go back on it , but he doesn't do that. he says i have nerve damage and that need to take anitseziure meds which Ihave been on before. but what about the pain I'm going thru now. he really doesn't want any more surgery on back, thinks they are messing it up further but stimulator needs to come out if it doesn't work.its like hav e the surgery don't have the surgery. be on opiates but don't be on opiats. now if i look for new pm theyll think I'm doctor shopping.
