I don’t know what to do. My old doctor of 8 years prescribed medication which was effective in treating my symptoms, but since I moved my new doctor won’t prescribe the same meds. I’ve she’s put me on a bunch of new meds which only made things much worse and even though I’ve explained to her how the new meds doesn’t work but only make things 10 x worse she just won’t prescribe the stuff that works.

Does anyone know of pain management clinics in PA?

I'm currently living in Hawaii, but needing to do dual residency in PA and the only thing holding me back is finding a pain management clinic/doctor that will continue me on the same regimine as I'm currently taking. The place I'm buying is righ along the MD border, so clinics there would be an option also. I'm all set to put an offer in on a place to reside today. Any ideas?

If you're on the border, how far are you from Johns Hopkins? My sister goes to a pain clinic there. Just an idea.

Lumbar spine surgery, should I?

Diagnosed with severe Lumbar spinal stenosis. Orthopedic doc recommended laminectomy and fusion. Decided to go to a neurosurgeon for second opinion. He also recommended laminectomy on three vertebrae and fusion on three vertebrae. I won't kid you, I'm scared. Is the surgery going to work, relieve me of pain? How long is the recovery? He says it could be 6-12 months! Anyone had this experience? I've had two knee replacements and two cancer surgeries in the last 18 years. I hate the… read more
