Hello from JustAnswer.

The only options for pain relief that are available over the counter would be an anti-inflammatory medicine, such as ibuprofen or naproxen, or acetaminophen. It is also OK to use both and alternate between the two types of drugs.

There are prescription medicines that are frequently used for relief of chronic pain, such as gabapentin or pregabalin, but your doctor would need to prescribe such drugs.

Here in lies the problem . I have been to 4 Dr's last 3 months.(MARK ,fiance took me) they will not prescribe any because I am in drug watch .. I did my time I am not on drugs been drug free 6 years. But all say wait till pain mgmt.. we started the pain process in march , if I were healthy as people in my community ,Drs prescribe opioid freely but people who need it cannot get anything above naproxin. Even 2 of my Dr's said to rebreak.. but a nuro surgeon said not to. .I'm at my wits end and so is Mark . His family is in the medical field and he is a worship pastor.. we want to follow everything right. And i have been so blessed he is in my life. But we are clueless.. do you have any recommendation in central ky area we can see or clinch we can get i n.. in my wreck I died twice. Had a broken back pelvis. Busted spleen . It was bad . Please if you know anyone I can see

Even if they are not willing to prescribe an opiate, you can discuss whether your regular doctor would be willing to prescribe gabapentin or pregabalin.

An intervention by your primary care doctor contacting the pain management doctor office would also be route by which you would be most likely to be able to get a quicker appointment.

Sorry, we have tried so many thimgs, it's hard to remember,, I was reading something about a new injection that may help,, do u know what or how it works, not sure what it was called
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.

If you cannot name the injection you are referencing, then I cannot comment upon the injection.
