Hello to all!
I am new to this forum.I am hoping to get info on a doctor to see in Pittsburgh Pa area for my chronic leg pain. I had a epidural injection l5/s1 for a herniated disc, my pcp refered me to a back specialist and he sent me to a pain clinic to get the injection.
I am in pain every day and no one will prescribe me anything for it anymore.
I took darvocet for years from my pcp and it kept me goin(not much relief) He had me take lortab a few months back when things got worse.I was pain free!!
and finally getting my life back in order, and getting things done around the house and with my car collection.I was taking lortab 10/500 i believe, twice a day.
All three doctors I have seen are now telling me I cannot take these medication(opiods) because they are addictive.I understand the risk.
I am looking for a dr to manage my chronic pain,in the Pittsburgh PA area, with an opiod pain medication because it works for me,and all the other stuff I have taken has not,
Are most Dr's this agianst opiate medications? Or have I found a minority group, painfully unlucky for me?
Thanks for your help and concern,
