. I was diagnosed with DDD and my only available help from dr's is a free health clinic. Free health clinics obviously can't give pain med prescriptions out or they would be packed. So, I have saved up to go to a dr so I can get on a pain management program. I have the MRI showing the DDD. I have had 2 injections and have taken all the different anti-inflammatory meds. I am in no way a pill seeker, I just want a better quality of life. I have a 2 yr old and a wife that has fibromyalgia. What do I do? I have the money finally for a dr visit. Don't want to just ask a dr for meds but don't want to leave the dr with nothing either
