I'm a 60 years old ex cocktail waitress with LOTS OF work

Customer Question

I'm a 60 years old ex cocktail waitress with LOTS OF work related pain issues. But none of my Docs here in Vegas will prescribe pain pills, I.e. hydrocodone. I am in chronic pain all the time and gaining weight from not moving. What can I do ?

You can find a pain management specialist.

You will need to NOT tell the specialist what you need, but let him/her make the assessment, and work with them.

Here is a reliable list.
