S-1. I have spinal stenosis and sever nerve damage to my right leg that is very pAinfull my life is completely controlled by my pain. I also have a spinal cord stimulator that does not work. My dr will only give me 30 mg of mscontin 2 times a day. I am in so much pain I can't do anything anymore. I live in the Griffith, in area. Does anyone know of a dr I can go to for help. I simply need more pain control. Any answer would be appreciated

I'm sorry - I don't know of anyone. Are there any really large teaching hospitals or University or Regional Hospitals within a 100 mile radius? Best idea would be to try to get into their Pain Management Programs. I started off going to Johns Hopkins, then followed my pain specialist when he completed his Fellowship and set up private practice. I know how awful pain is - I have a stimulator too. Mine gives me 25-30% pain relief, for which I am very grateful. Why isn't yours working? When it was working did it help a lot? Wish I could help more! - EJ23
