I have been suffering from chronic pain for 7 years and have always been on and off pain meds from tylenol 3 to 90mg methadone at the worst of any ever taken. I decided to dose down & get off of methadone as I did not care for the "clinic" enviroment per say as I was using more for pain then for addicition. I found a dr that prescribed me the pain meds for breakthrough pain and the pill form of methadone 10mg was what I chose but now he is gone as he lost his license which sucks for me because NO ONE will give me anything, not even the methadone unless I go back to the stupid clinc and I so don't want that... DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A DR. that would prescribe anything or just something to get me through life with less pain? I am in the twin cities of Minnesota and I will drive if need be.

Dee , if you've been getting Methadone at a clinic then you have been receiving it for the treatment of drug addiction. You won't be able to find a dr that will treat your pain since you've been going to a Methadone clinic because you have a history of drug addiction.

Valerie...
Clinics name is in the original post i thought and that Clinic is still standing and doing well!!! Twin cities pain clinic Edina Dr will
I have yet to go, but have been talking about it for some time with my old primary who now is retired and she highly recommended them so now I'm working on getting a referral again so I can get my butt over there and also get the medication that I need instead of going month to month with my primary because I need more specialized care.
Good luck in Twin Cities Minnesota there are a few good ones, yes from when I'm learning there are many who will just make you through all your money by doing a lot of additional treatments that I wouldn't even consider like Botox. So beware of those that want $$$$$ for each visit with price going up each time.
Yet like I said the original post has the clinic that I have heard nothing but fabulous things about so please look for that first post and they should be able to help you out but you do need a referral.
Let me know how it works out, for I plan in the next month's to get my backside to them to see what other help can be offered. Just hope they take my medical insurance Medica..
Good luck & please if you do go there are you find some place that's better keep me posted because I am definitely on the search for a pain management clinic and take it out of the hands of my primary

Keikee, no attorney is going to do that because it is not winnable. Drs realize now that they can't continue to increase pain meds for patients, there are limits. Drs don't want their patients dying because of something that they did, so they aren't prescribing high dosages. Patients have to do their part when it comes to managing their pain and combining pain meds with non medications ways of managing pain. Some of those ways are adjusting your life style, watching your weight, seeing a oain psychologist, accupuncture, etc. If a patient feels suicidal, it is up to them to get help. It isn't their pain management dr responsibility, unless the patient tells their pain dr that they are thnking about hurting themselves. In those cases the pain dr does have a responsibility to get them psychiatric help, not prescribe them more pain meds or continue to prescribe pain meds if the pain dr doesn't believe that they are needed.

Also, you aren't going to find a death certificate that has a patient not being able to get their pain meds as a primary or secondary cause of death. When a chronic pain patient commits suicide, they are viewed as having mental/emotional problems and the death isn't connected to their chronic pain.

I just had a light bulb moment. Someone needs to sue the heck out of the DEA/FDA for losing a family member or job or friend because a government agency that doesn't even know that person decided they were on too many pain pills! !!OMG

Kathi, you will need a copy of yoru medical records from your previous dr. It is doubtful that a new dr will start you out on the same thimg that you have been taking. You may or may not be able tpo find a dr that will prescribe you the same meds and/or in the same doses that your previouos dr did.

P, I have been on 150 micrograms fentanyl + 8 milligram dilaudid + 30 milligram oxycontin for about 6 years. Now my doctor retired with no warning whatsoever and now I'm left to try and find a doctor who will prescribe for me. I live in Sacramento California area. I have adhesive spondylolisthesis and spinalinal stenosis 6 invasive back surgeries at L5-s1, 3 recent surgeries and currently two hernias. I take these medications because I need them for these various diseases. I do not take them for any other reason and they help make me able to get up every morning and have a life. My father committed suicide just about two and a half months ago because he was unable to get his medications and I don't want to find myself or my family in the situation of having someone else do the same thing. I just can't imagine living my life in any more pain. I'm already forced to. Please help.

I was stabbed in my spine a few years back and after three spinal surgeries I suffer daily. My Dr. was prescribing me 30 mg oxycodone. He moved his practice and I desperately need a Doctor. I live in Ontario Ca. and could really use a referral. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

A new dr will want a copy of your medical records from your previous dr. Most drs have their won way of prescribing. They usually start you out on the lowest dose and the mildest pain med, even if they have your medical records stating that you have been taking something else. Just because a previous dr prescribe you a certain med at a certain dose is no guarantee that another dr will.

Kay..

I live in mpls area and need to find a local pain clinic who takes medica for insurance and not feel judged or ashamed for my chronic pain issues... Now I have yet to seek out a pain clinic in fear of all the stories I have heard by others on being made to feel your an addict when all I am looking for is support and help to understand & deal with my forever pain I live with. My primary has been awesome and has been able to give me my pain meds monthly without shaming me. He does share his concerns on becoming addition to opiates and YES I have had to be on them now for almost 10 plus years with dosage this last year going upto 20 MG oxycodone 4 times today for blown disc in lower back and shattered now desolved tailbone to learn 4 months back I now have rheumatoid arthritis which after a year of pretending my hands looked fine did I have to come to terms with the visual deformities this is taking & how terrible day to day function has become. Now with this said I know my doctor would like to do more for me yet he is so limited with his clinic park Nicollet and to be honest he has referred me outside of there Clinic face because he has more faith in the University of Minnesota and then he does they're doctors is in their network for my back surgery. And with my arthritis being fairly newly diagnosed I am just starting to learn how to deal with that.

I have heard of this pain clinic from others with positive feedback. I have yet to venture into the pain clinic world yet I know my doctor would prefer me to seek my chronic pain issues through a specialist ywt I have always been feared of being judged for my pain medication I have used for 10 plus years. I now that day to day function without it is almost impossible for my career requires me to stand most the day and I use my hands 90% of my work day. I have worked my tail off for my store and love my company with every bit of me and have been them 15 Years now & I have worked hard to have a very successful store and I have wonderful employees that I oversee so at this point I can not see myself doing anything else. Yet with my new diagnosis with the rheumatoid arthritis and how fast it seems to be advancing I do not know how much longer I'll be able to use my hands in the matter that I need. I have learned to deal with the chronic back issues with the daily meds, inj's. 3 times a year & I have said NO to fusing of my back for fear of outcome.

I guess my question for you is if I do venture into the pain clinic area which I know needs to happen for I am 150% dependent on my pain medication and if I wanted to get off at I have been told that I should try suboxone do you know if this clinic uses that as an option, yet my fear with that is if I am not able to deal with my pain and find it is something I need or will need as my rheumatoid arthritis worsens will I be able to get my pain medication back? I do not want to be labeled for something I may need again or punished for if I desire to try to stop or see if I can go manage pain without the opiates yet need to try subs in order to keep my career on track without getting sick as I do so. I have taken my opiates for 10.5 years without a day missed & I have seen people that have went through withdrawals or stopped cold turkey and how terribly sick they have been and I do not want that to be me. Do you know if twin cities pain clinic uses suboxone as an option? I am have a good history with my clinic I have all my MRI & CAT scans I have never hopped doctors or broken the rules with my medication... I just want to see if there is a safe way to try to see if I can attempt to seek life without all these pills daily yet do so in a safe manner. I would appreciate if you have any extra info on Dr well and the Twin Cities pain clinic and I'm excited to read more about them for I'm ready for trying something different.. I need to learn to manage this new illness before I let it manage me. Thanks for posting about them and I hope to read more.

I went to a Dr. Andrew Will in Bloomington/Edina area close to France ave so & 494. I think it was called the Twin Cities Pain Clinic He really helped my pain & when I requested, he KNEW HOW to give injections in my back. His nurses were also very nice-alot more than the ones here in Chicago. Good luck.
