    Default I Have MS, Live In Burbank CA. Need Doctor

    I'm not sure how this site works, but I was hoping maybe someone could help me out. I'm not sure if this is against the rules, but I read them and it doesn't seem like it.


    I was diagnosed with MS(Multiple Sclerosis) 2 years ago, and I'm constantly in a lot of pain all the time. I also have lupus and severe migraine headaches.

    The PM doctor I currently have believes in eastern medicine and that sort of stuff and barely prescribes any medication that sufficiently takes care of the horrible pain I live with every day.

    He gives me 60 Norco 10's a month and thinks that is too much medication.


    I KNOW this is not true because it doesn't treat my pain one in the least.

    I have test results and everything that proves I have MS, plus it's very obvious. I'm not in a wheel chair yet but it's only a matter of time.

    Anyway, I'm looking for a good pain management doctor that's caring, competent, and compassionate and most of all not afraid to prescribe adequate pain medication to someone that actually needs it.

    I do not abuse my meds and I never will because I believe it's people like that, that are the reason I can't get the right medication for my condition.


    Anyway, I live in the southern California area. Burbank but am willing to drive, within reasonable distances. LA, hollywood, pasadena ect...


    But I really need help, I need a doctor that will prescribe me medication that treats the pain I live with, along with other treatments.

    So if anyone has a great doctor they wouldn't mind sharing with someone that really needs it please help me out.

    My Email is Phallmason8@yahoo.com, email it to me. Also any support or kind words are greatly appreciated cause god knows I need it.


    Thank you for reading my post.

    Pam ... sorry we missed your post over the holiday. We are normally very good about answering posts within hours.

    I have worked with people having autoimmune problems for almost ten years. I post here and on autoimmune disease forums where I've moderated for years. I personally have three autoimmune illnesses myself and understand the pain that often goes with these problems.

    I would need to know more information about your MS, lupus and the reason for your migraine headaches before recommending any drs. I know some of the best rheumatologists/other specialists treating your conditions in the country and some happen to be located in southern CA.

    Sometimes we can help the pain by addressing the autoimmune problem itself rather than just loading up on pain meds. Understand that I am not against pain meds when necessary, but they don't fix anything. It's nothing more than a mask for the real problem. That is why I am asking to know a little more about your status. Will watch for your reply. God bless.
    I am not a dr. My statements are based on years of experience and related education. Consult with the professional of your choice regarding matters of concern.
