I found an ad in my local paper for acupuncturist who lists various "qualifications", one being the above and one being a "certified addiciton specialist". He specializes in "Pain and Addictive Medication". Practices at a Holistic Healthcare place and at a local hospital's pain management program.
Anyone ever heard of this kind of specialty?
(In case you read my other recent topic I am considering seeing if a narcotic med may be my next step...so I am trying to figure out if this guy might be someone I should try to see. Or maybe he helps people that are addicted come off meds?)
Fibromyalgia, TMJ dysfunction, Myofascial Pain Dysfunction, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, hypothyroid, bruxism, endometriosis, medically induced menopause (everything removed!), major depression, going through a divorce to top it off!
Ultram, Soma, Ativan, Lyrica (on and off), Armour Thyroid, Famvir, can't tolerate SSRIs or NSRIs.
