TLA912; In most cases, you have to be referred to the pain clinic by your doctor did you check and see if that is what the other clinic she referred you to go to? Otherwise call your doctor again and ask who you are to see for the pain. That is all I can think of. Outside of that is call your Insurance and see who they have listed in your area for a pain doctor or clinic and ask them if you need a referral before you make an appointment with that doctor. You sure don't need a huge bill. Good luck to you.
You start with your pcp. They will need to do some diagnostics (MRI and the like) and then refer you to a pain management doctor, or they may just tell you to find one, in that case I would look on your Health Insurance Companies web site and see who in that specialty is on your plan and then make an appointment. Do so asap as pain management doctors are usually booked out quite far in advance.
