I live near nothing, I really need some help finding a pain doc who will rx meds and due trigger point injections. I have had six major pelvic/abd surgery and now I have adhesions and severe pain. My pain doctor retired and his practice has changed the doc there said I should not get trigger point injections they are not indicated, he's wrong. I could travel to Harrisburg, Reading, Philly, Allentown, Scranton Hershey. I have been searching but no luck. Anyone able to recommend a doctor or clinic? There was a local doctor who lost her license for rx to many narcotics recently. I was at my pcp today and he actually said did you read the paper? I said no he told me about this doctor and I said what does that have to do with us? He said he will no longer be giving pain meds, gave me a months worth and said good luck... Unbelivable I am hearing from other people that they are either being precribed a lot less or are being told to find a Pain management doctor. Problem is they are not writing for meds. Some of us need meds I hate it but I am one of them. I would appreciate any input. Thanks.

I'm sorry - I hear you. I wish I had an answer for you, but I don't. There are so many people like you searching for someone to please give them their pain meds! I feel for you - and am very concerned that this is my future also. I didn't want for no one to answer you - we know how hard it is. Doctors have decided not to prescribe pain meds, and you suffer because of it. I wish I had an answer for you - I truly do. - ElizaJane

hi ksrocr2,I live in pa,not too far from philly.that's the way things work in PA. YOUR PCP will start you on the proper course of medication then ask you to go to a pain management dr.Are there any hospitals in your area? cause most of them have pain management clinics or doctors who can point you in the right direction.you said you live near nothing, where is nothing pa? lol just kiddin.maybe you can ask your pharmasist if he or she knows a doctor who can help you with the kind of treatments your looking for. but pill mill doctors in pa dont last to long. and thank god for that. i know just how you feel,but finding a doctor when your last one died creates a major problem.get all your medical recordes and your pharmacy recordes first thing... pete

I am having the same problem as you are and i also am from pa. you don't say what part you are from just nowhere.
I have neuropathy and a couple other painful illnesses but the neuropathy is the worst. I also lost my dr and can't seem to find one.
I went to a pain clinic and now i an having problems with them because they like to test for back problems it seems and not what i have.
I wish i could help you and i feel your pain, believe me! but were both in the same situation here.
all this bad stuff going on with dr and prescription drugs being given to the wrong people for the wrong reasons does not help people like me and you that really need medication.
wish i could help.
good luck! If i have any I'll let you no but let me no where nowhere is..lol
