dridupinky, so it looks as if you had a pain manageent dr, what happen to that one? did you go outside of the contract and him/her drop you as a patient? you know my famous words are go for a emergency room visit, then while there ask the dr thats treating you for a list of names that are good pain drs. you can alos google it in your area and call around, you will find one, good luck and hope that things get better
