Avatar f tn t live like this any more, I need to find someone who can help fix this. I live in Vestal NY. IF anyone out there can help me understand what to do next PLEASE say so!! I am so desperate. I have been given such the run around in my area and I am hoping to find a Dr who can help before i end up in the hospital here locally again b/c it is so bad. Thanks for any info you have to either help me understand the syndrome better or to find a couple options of places that have Dr who treat SMAS.
Avatar f tn t tell you how to go about getting a good pain management doctor other than to say you just have to get a referral and keep looking until you find one that is willing to give you alot of different option on how to control your pain. A good pain management doctor will not just give you pain meds the first visit with no history or test, or give them to you just because you want them to treat your pain.
Avatar f tn Yes, pain management is a battle as well unfortunately. I assume you're dealing with a pain management doctor vs your PCP? There are a number of different options that don't have any addition additives like Ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Crazy new world out there due to both the DEA/FDA nuts and the drug seekers as well. Patients that just need help are caught in the crossfire.
Avatar m tn I realize my options with her are gone, she has given into the fear of prescribing opiates. But what do I do now? I have tried other pain management clinics and they are all afraid as well, even tough I have extensive documentation of my disease (endometriosis). So I'm not sure if this is appropriate, but what I need is the NAME of a pain doctor that will even consider continuing my meds. I live in NY. Like I said, I have all my documentation and have done the local shopping around.
Avatar m tn Several times since I have had intense pain that shows up randomly in the same spot. A few weeks ago it started to hurt even worse than it did when I initially broke it. It won't go away and I can barely use my hand at all. Even small movements can set it off including spreading my fingers apart. I'm a gifted musician and I'm very worried about it. I live in upstate NY and we have several inches of snow right now.

Avatar f tn Do everything Jerry said. He did give you great advice and I think if you do these things everything is going to be alright. Yes, they do put all prescriptions on one or two pages now. It's not like it used to be where you would get one for every single script. Your regular pharmacist was not the one who filled them. And why in the world do these DRs think any of us would ever sell our medications?!!!

Avatar f tn After reading about pain management during labor I have decided to not have any medication unless it is absolutely necessary. However, I am still back and forth about an epidural. What is everyone's opinions or experiences with it? Trying to weigh the pros and cons.
Avatar f tn I have an infertility doctor who I know is wonderful with fertility drugs and IVF, but the pain management has been poor. Vicodin helps a lot, however, I cannot find anyone to prescribe it for me on a regular basis because it is addictive. I take a half of Vicodin 2 times a day. I dont think thats a problem, and it gives me a better quality life. What is Ponstel?
Avatar f tn Today the pain is bringing me to tears and I was just hoping that I could get some ideas on other options of pain management? I need some help and the doctors around here have been pretty stumped on what I should do. Any suggestions would help!

Avatar m tn Does your hospital that you go to have a Cancer care centre with a Pain management team? Our hospital here in Canada has a Palliative care cancer centre with Pain management. It is for all people with cancer not just paliative patients.

539841 tn?1235394722 The subject? Pain management. I am not going to be melodramatic, just honest- I have nothing to gain to be anything other than this. I am dying. We all are, right? Well maybe mine is just coming a little faster than others. This is the thing. My son is young still at 11. I want to enjoy him and my wife as much as I can. To do this it requires pain killers of the HEAVY variety.
Avatar n tn t do much as far as alternative pain management options. I would research other options and avoid the pain management clinics (if you can).
