I have had back pain, since I was younger, including muscle spasms. All the doctor gives me are muscle relaxers that just make me tired. I go to Kaiser Permanente and my doctor won't give me anything stronger. I was also in a car accident in November and am still in pain. What should I do ? I need something stronger for the pain.
I would first get an MRI to see if there's damage. If there's no damage than it's extremely hard to find a doctor that will treat your pain. If the MRI shows results of your back having degenerative disc disease, Myofacial pain, etc.. Then usually you would go to a Specialist such as a Pain Medicine Doctor/Anesthesiologist. They will be able to prescribe you the right pain medication. Hope this helps. Good Luck as I know Pain is unbearable!
