Please share your experiences with me as far as seeing pain management doctors. I am considering it, but a little sour on the idea.
My mom saw a pain management doctor after a compression fracture of a lumbar vertebrae. This doctor wrote no less than six prescriptions on her first visit. I called her from work after she took of the new pills--sorry, can't remember the name of the medication. She literally took about five minutes to form a sentence during the phone call with me.
Her internist told her to stop taking all of the medications prescribed by the PM doctor and, in the future, never to trust a doctor who wrote that many prescriptions in a single appointment.
