:''( Good Morning, it's been a long time since I last posted and was rather suprised to see the site was moved, but luckily I found it.
I have a problem with my chronic back pain as well as looking for a new pain management doctor.
I will start with the pain. It's of course in my back and it's so bad I throw up from it. I have no idea why this is happening unless it's from the weather since we have turned super cold again. The pain is mainly in my right shoulder blade. It starts there and shoots to the front of me. I also have horrible pain in my lower back. I am taking vicodin, soma, ambien cr for sleep but that is a joke since I'm lucky to sleep five hours. I also take Relafen twice a day which sometimes does help and other times it doesn't. I have found taking a hot shower to allow the water to hit that area of my back does help, as well as the heating pad which seems to help less and less. So please, any suggestions I am very greatful for.
Now the second issue, my pain management doctor has taken a position as a medical director at a hospital so I need to find a new PM doctor. I live in Plano, Texas so if anyone happens to know of a good one who won't just think I'm faking the pain for pills I would be so happy. I get so annoyed when I read posts from others who have this chronic pain and the stories of doctors and ER's thinking they are seeking pain meds. I just need help as soon as possible and any as well as all suggestions will be appreciated.
