I want to know about
pain clinics. Has anyone ever gone to one? Do they just give pain meds or what? I don't like taking meds, but I've tried everything and I'm wondering if I should go to a pain clinic. I'm very active because I'm 18 and go to college and I race dirtbikes... So I frequent lots of pain. So I would be willing to try something like meds if I don't have to worry about
weight gain or addiction. Those are my 2 major fears.
Any advice? Or anything at all... Thanks
