Thanks for the suggestion Lorie, I'll check it out. The pain doctor that doesn't prescribe medication, gave me a list of pain centers in Philadelphia and I called all of them. Most of them were dead ends (Didn't accept my insurance, or only does injections, etc) but I found a couple possibilities. I hate having to depend on narcotic medications for pain relief. It makes you look desperate, like a junkie, when in reality you're not addicted or anything. However, you need the meds to take away SOME of the pain. Then people say, But you're still in so much pain even with the heavy pain meds, so why don't you stop taking them? I know they're helping, because when my doctor tried to reduce my doseage a few months ago, the pain shot through the roof. Sorry for the rant and thanks again.
