My dr also just got shut down. He wasn't a pill pusher, just a caring doctor who would take time to listen. He literally gave my mom her life back when she started seeing him. She is on a low dose of Methadone for very real chronic pain. She has a number of health issues and records to prove it. I've always read posts about people looking for "compassionate" doctors and thought more then likely it's prob some teen looking for drugs. Now we're in the same boat bc her meds are practicality up. Does anyone know of a doctor that will keep her on this med or at least taper her off? She is scared to death and I just don't knew what to do. We don't want a bunch of oxy or morphine.... just someone to help so she won't go through withdrawls. Methadone has been used for chronic pain for years but so many doctors hear about it and instantly think crack head!
So anyway...Im looking for a doctor as well in AL Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I understand your pain. If some of the people in the DEA ever experienced just some of the pain we as chronic pain patients have to go through 24/7 then in my opinion they would be more passionate. Yes, I understand they are doing there job but people have pain and the way they are handling things then Pain Doctors are going to be far and few to find. I have heard that some of the people that are attending college now to become Pain Management Doctors are changing their minds and are just going to be regular Doctors now. It's such a shame. This is suppose to be THE LAND OF THE FREE... I say BS on that. This nation is becoming communist. Before to long the gov't will be controlling all of us unless we take a stand. Just my opinion....

You may and probably are right in saying that some people may not really need the pain medicine but I can assure you that many people do need pain medication. I wish that the state I live in would legalize MEDICAL MARIJUANA. I know my best friend moved to Colorado and she is doing so much better with the MM. She is off pain medication and is finally living more of a normal life....

I use Neurology Associates, they require medical history, but if you have a neurological problem with pain history they will prescribe. Good luck I hope you find some help soon.

You make a valid point: the DEA is not a bunch of doctors. However, one of the duties of the DEA is to try to curtail illegal drug diversion, including diversion of drugs related to doctors writing prescriptions for excessive amounts of units of controlled substances.

I can't think of a single FDA-approved drug that doesn't list guidelines for typical dosing. Occasionally, a paient may need a dose that's higher or lower than the doses listed in dosing guidelines - this is an exception, not the norm. Some of the Rx instructions that I've read on these message boards (which could simply be made up by the person positing it) are far out of line from typical prescribing instructions. The most notable Rx's that are far from being a typical prescribed dose are some of the alleged prescriptions people claim they received from a doctor. Sometimes a high dose of narcotics is needed for severe pain, BUT ... high doses of narcotics depress the respiratory system and can be fatal. I have serious doubts that some of the prescriptions described by people on this message board are real ... some of them would be euthanasia, not pain relief.

I have a question for anyone willing to help. I have had back surgery and had a piece of my L-5 cut out of my root nerve I was alright for a few months but now I am having pain in the same area. I went to Dr. Tao in Huntsville and was told by his nurse that I wasn't a candidate for surgery and suffered for months in the bed called lost my fiance and my 20 yr old son had to take care of me. He called St. Vincent's Hospital and I was in Dr. Harsh's office no less than ten minutes and he asked if I was ready for surgery I cried. He told me that epidurals are detrimental to your back and softens your spine. So why do doctors want to make people have no choice but to have them? I need help finding a doctor that is willing to help with medications without procedures in Alabama area. Does anyone know of any clinics that don't demand epidurals? I don't care if it is non narcotic just as long as it helps. I have osteoarthritis in my knees, back and hands and disk degeneration disease and want to get my life back clean my home the way I like it and have a productive relationship but when I'm in pain don't care if I get a bath or even get out of bed.

I doubt it hon. I went to him about 4 years ago and had a very unpleasant experience. Seems in my opinion he didn't care for his patients pain/anxiety.

If worse comes to worse, go to a methadone clinic. Every city has one. They will treat any opiate addiction not just H. It will give you time to find a good doc.

If youre still in the military you cannot go to an outside physician for pain pills...it is against military policy...especially as you go through an MEB...that is if you are on active orders. If not then message me at {edited for privacy}. And I will tell you who mine is and the lowdown about him.

Pleasant Creek you are so right. I myself wish that Alabama would legalize Cannabis. That's just my opinion and for ME I know it would work. However, since it is not legal then I have no other option but to go to a Pain Doctor due to my Health Issues. I know how CHRONIC PAIN affects people because I am in chronic pain myself. People that have never had any injuries have no idea how badly we suffer.

Good job. Those who are haters in here should be disregarded. It's YOUR PERSONAL CHOICE who to listen to. It's your personal choice to take what fits and leave the rest. Haters please leave. There are a lot of good people in here looking for REAL answers. They don't want to be judged. All I can say is..."when someone attacks you? They're usually acting out their own weaknesses" so keep that in mind as you read the responses in this site.

If your pharmacy doesn't carry them, by law, they should find or call a neighboring pharmacy to see if they have them in stock.

Your family doctor should give you a script until you find another pain clinic. You can call your insurance for a list of doctors and pain clinics. That's how I found my pain clinic. Been there for 10 years. Hope this helps. Also google pain management clinics in your area but I found the more direct approach was asking my family doc and calling my insurance company. Good luck. Everyone deserves Good Quality of life.
