Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with vast experience in diagnosing & treating all types of neurological & other medical conditions including the concerns of “extremely severe neck pain & other extremely severe symptoms” you have mentioned here and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns.

First I will ask few questions so that I can gather additional information related to your health concerns;

1) You have mentioned “I am looking for a doctor”, could you clarify on this statement, at this site we can only help you through our online service by providing you help with the diagnosis and treatments but we are unable to see you personally. Is it what you are looking for, if you want to physically see a dr then you need to visit a clinic, at this site we can help you through our online services.

2) Have you already seen dr in the clinic? If yes what type of dr, have you had any investigations done already, if yes what is the report of these investigations?

3) What kind of treatments have you tried already? Please try to provide me a list of all the treatments you have already tried (medication and non-medication treatments both)?

4) Did this pain start after any injury or trauma etc?

5) Have you ever had this type of extremely severe pain and other symptoms before, or is this the first time this has ever happened?

Not to be rude but 22 dollars got me what? I waited since 3pm yesterday for a question? I have been with the same neurologist since 2006 to 2015 in Delaware I moved to Florida looking for the right neurologist for me, I don't like to be told well one more test I like action let's take care of the problem. The medicine helps to function some what . 2006 was my first car accident and 2012 my 2nd. My med is dilaudid 8mg 4x daily, methadone 6x daily, ambien as needed, soma as needed, diazpam as needed, cymbalta 30mg and 60mg 1X daily . I have done therapy, injections, mri x-rays. Everthing I was asked to do. This pain is kind of new this is the fourth time I have it and I can't do anything. Over a month ago I fell lost the feeling in my legs, lots of bruising broke two front teeth and this awful pain. A week later 8/25/16 went to ER i tbought it would go away like before but it's getting worse. I have no medicine and I can't concentrate to do anything. I'm on complete disability since 08 due to my injuries.

Expert:  Dr Subbanna MD replied 10 months ago.

Hi, You are very welcome. What I meant is I answered this question the moment I had logged in to the site and the moment I had access to your question and there was no delay from my side, however we certainly understand and empathize with your concerns and we are earnestly sorry for the delay happened in replying to your question.

And please not to reply otherwise the question will get locked back to me and other experts may not be able to help you. Just informing, best regards.

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 10 months ago.

I have logged on and saw that this question has remained unanswered after the other expert has opted out. I am in a situation to be able to call you, but it is still unclear what help you are seeking. It is a violation of federal law for a doctor to prescribe the medicines that you have been taking without seeing you personally. It cannot be done via an internet or a phone interaction. We can only provide information in response to questions about medicla conditions, but you would still need to personally see a doctor to obtain prescriptions.

If any such information would be helpful, please clarify what information would be helpful, and if you would prefer that I call you for that discussion, then I would be glad to initiate the Offer for Premium Services.
