Those of us that suffer chronic pain are probably looking for the same answers that I am. What can be do to stop this suffering? I can't get answers; or know what type of Doctor I should see to help me.
I have seen a Neurosurgeon several years ago. He said I have bulging discs that were in operable.
He referred me back to my PCP; who then referred me to a Pain Management Doctor.
Other than Hydrocodone, and Opana and four injections over the past 5 years, that is the only relief - very temporary, that I have had.
One doctor told me I had a pinched nerve causing the pain, the other didn't have an answer.
I have severe pain in my left shoulder; and now it has gone to my arm; tingling at times
Has anyone had similar symptoms; and had successful treatment? I am wits end.
With the new laws enacted limiting a 30 day and amount of opiods; it is very difficult to get medication; when you need them.
The sufferers are the ones who are being punished by these laws due to abusers.
I need help please. Can anyone please tell me what type of doctor I should try to see and any tests that will tell me what's wrong?
I am so sorry for being so lengthy. I am desperate and can't cope much longer.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
I hope you can get at least some comfort some time
