I need to find a family doctor that will refer me to a pain

Customer Question

I need to find a family doctor that will refer me to a pain management specialist. I quit going to my last PM doctor because he really messed me up. Thanks, ***** *****
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: I've been in chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain for over 10 years. Heat, ice, and the meds I was taking helped, not 100%, but better. Driving, standing, computer use, which is my profession hurt the worst.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have lost over 60 pounds in the past 3 years, and am trying to quit smoking. I also have a history of anxiety, and some depression.

Hi there.
What medications have you tried?
You should not have any difficulties finding a primary care doctor that will send you to a pain management doctor. You will find a lot of difficulty getting into a pain management doctor. Unfortunately we can not send you to a pain management doctor, but I would highly recommend seeing a pain doctor.
