Customer Question

I have fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and lower back pain. Just the fibromyalgia Pain alone is horrible enough. The pain from all 3 health problems is killing me.I have tried methadone. I am currently taking oxycontin, lyrica, savella, and celabrex. And I am still in horrible pain.I go to the Pain Management Center, but all she would say is that Marinol is used for cancer patients.I know that some doctors prescribe Marinol for chronic pain. I just don't know which doctors in my area do.I live in Duluth GA USA 30096.How do I find the right Doctor?
