I have lots of pain issues from fibro, diabetic neuropathy, DDD, OA, fused neck, etc. My PCP, who is an osteopathic physician has referred me to a pain clinic, if I want to go. This doctor knows me, and knows I am in a lot of daily pain. Right now I'm doing PT, which identifys all the places I hurt, everytime he starts working on a new area of my neck or back. The pain clinic called to set up an appointment, which isn't until Nov 10th. I have read so many horror stores about pain managment clinics accusing pts of selling meds, not treating their pain,, not allowing anyone else to perscribe pain meds, etc. Am I ahead just to stay with my good PCP, who will send me to whatever specialist I think might help me, or go to the Pain Managment Clinic, who tells me they have all I need under one roof...pain meds, PT, surgeries, alternative therapies? Just wanted to get members opinions about this. Or if anyone has been to OHSU in Portland, Or.Thanks for any ideas you all might have.
