Dear pain since 91
Dont listen to people telling you your regular physician is wrong. It is 99%likely that
he is right .These opioids are extremely addictive and they reduce your pain threshold so that they increase your sensitivity to pain. They were thought to be a miracle cure for chronic pain by the medical professsion (my people) 10 yrs ago and they have turned into more of a medical disaster. If you gradually scale down your pain meds according to your doctors advcice you will feel more pain in the short run and less pain in the long run
Do not go to ANY pain clinic .These are the people who created this disastrous
black chapter in the history of medicine . (they use the term opioids for noncancer pain ,at least that was the in vogue term last week ) A conservative chiropracter who uses hands on therapy can give you decent relief ,but have realistic expectations .You will nt be cured .
It sounds to me as if your own doctor is giving you excellent advice.
