Exclamation 
STATE : TN


im gonna keep this brief and to the point. got hurt at work , had back surgery L5/S1 and got severe neck problems and cant use my right arm and cant walk long distances.. the wc settled with us for a reasonable amount. and now im stuck in pain management. and the docs wont give me what i am needed for pain. they had me on nucynta 75 and now they took me off that cause its not working anymore and my blood pressure pills aint working neither . why does this happen? well the docs put me on opana 7.5 and now its not helping at all. what can i do ? the docs dont want me on narcotics! is it because im signed up on dissability? should i seek another doc, and get a second opinion? pain management said im AS IS. Nothing more they can do for me. like buying a car IM AS IS NO REFUNDS. im to the point to where i dont wanna do anything due to the pain. the more active i am , the more the pain sets in for longer periods of time and cant even get up from the couch. very sad situation with my young age i shouldnt be doing this. i know some of you have had this issue and could give me some advice..

thanks for your help and godspeed

Pain - I would try to find another pain mgmt doctor. Their job is to keep you out of pain or at least lessen your pain. There are many options out there: Spinal cord stimulators, pain pumps, and many many pain meds. I would try a different doctor if I were you.

Good luck!
