Customer Question

I have been a chronic pain patient for 10 plus years. I just found out Iam pregnant. Where would I find a OBGYN/pain doctor who can help me? My regular pain doctor says she cant help. Iam on my own.

According to the California Medical Board, most California County Medical Societies
will provide physician referrals. I suggest that you contact your
County's Medical Association -- explain your situation -- and ask for a
referral to a physician who has both the training and experience to
deal with both aspects of your current medical situation.



If no single physician is found with those qualifications -- perhaps
they can refer you to an OB/GYN and Pain Doctor who have worked
together -- treating patients in your situation.



The above link provides contact information.



Let me know if you need more input. If not, thanks for the
opportunity to assist you... I would really appreciate your honoring my
efforts by 'pushing the button' and Accepting this answer. Adding
a bonus -- should you wish to do so -- is always warmly welcomed.



Good Luck!

Hi Telephone 1,
Do you know the source of your chronic pain? There are other ways to deal with chronic pain other than medications. I have a neurological disorder and deal with the pain by hypnosis. It really helps! It may take more than one session, but by 3 sessions with a good therapist, you should reduce your pain by 75-80%. Plus, you get a healthy baby! Good luck!

DearCustomer


If you don't mind me asking...what is your source of pain, and what are you having to take?


Thanks in advance...

I have 3 slipped disks and severe arthritis in my spine from several whiplashes in my past. I was born with a extra Rib bone "in my neck" I dont know why they call it a rib bone but they do. That causes lots of pain too. I asked for surgery but the doc said we cant.
Iam takeing Norco 10mg 6 or 7 a day.
