Lucky me, I have been to several pain management doctors and all of them just handed me drugs but absoutly no treatmnet, they wouldnt even do an mri, so til this day I still have disgnosis on why my back hurts so much. My councelour told me last week that she was gonna make some calls to my insurance to see if she can help get me another doctor to help treat me, I just want some answers on why I hurt so much, and I have been otld that because whatever is wrong has not been treated that I probably have arthritis in my back now. I have been rearended by a lady doing atleast 50 mph and I have fallen alsleep at the wheel and rolled down a hill, both of these accidents happened within a month of each other, so I know their has to be some damage to my back. I have fired my last pain specialist cause of the way he treated me, and the other 2 pain speaclists dont take my insurance or cash payments so I cant go to them, and thats all we have for pain management where I live. But truthfully I am happy with my pain meds right now but would love some physical therapy or aqua therapy for my back, or surgey if thats whats needed. I'm just surprised that these doctors are so quick to throw narcotics at me with no proof of what was wrong, and you would think it would be the other way around. So now I just see a neurologist formy migraines and fibro, and a doctor that specializes in the suboxone treatment, but no regualuasr doctor for my other problems, which makes me mad.
