  • One day i awaken with a pain in my neck, i thought it was a crick/crock but by weeks end i was in tears popping Tylenol to re leave the pain in which ultimately i ended up going to a primary care clinic who just prescribe pain meds, so i went to see another primary care clinic where she did nothing, I went to another primary care doc who sent me to a pain doctor, who could not tell me what was wrong from the MRI, but continue to prescribe pain shots in my neck. Ultimately my pain returned after a year in which the doctor couldn't speak English good enough to answer my questions; therefore i went and found me another pain doctor who tried spinal pain injections twice "did not work". he put me on regimen of pain meds one step below narcotics which ultimately destroyed my physical being in 8 to 10 months.A combination of 3 types of pain meds sent me through full mental-poss, tiredness, weight loss, couldn't concentrate on anything, all while i wait on a surgeon taking unnecessary test that caused a punctured spin and having to get a blood patch which was 2 months ago and now my blood patch along with pain in my neck hurting for the last week.........please help find doctor for nerve and muscle pain in my neck, shoulder, back, head depending on the level of pain
