Jlyn it depends on what your chronic pain is caused by. Some pain management doctors only treat spine related chronic pain while some doctors treat chronic pain in general.
The pain management doctor I see only treats conditions related to the spine.
I've been in pain management for 27 years in the DFW area. I live in Southwest Fort Worth. My doctor is based in Irving, but he also has a Fort Worth office.
It seems the better pain management doctors are in Dallas or the mid-cities HEB area, but Fort Worth has a few. Some will promise you alot and then after they've done all the procedures on you that they can kick you out the door to another doctor who just does meds. Some won't even prescribe narcotic analgesics up front until they've exhausted other avenues of treatment.
Don't you have a GP or Internist who can refer you to a pain management doctor that they work with?
Alot of pain management doctors require a referral for them to see you.

Sharona, the link below should help you find a pain management dr that accepts Medicare in your area. Very few drs, if any, will refuse a patient because they have Medicare/Medicaid. When you have Medicare and Medicaid, all that Medicaid does is pay your premiums, co/pays and deductibles. The drs are still paid the regular Medicare amount.

Sorry to hear that you're in so much pain. It's difficult to live like that, I know. You didn't mention what area you live in. I can tell you that here in Dallas/Fort Worth it's tough finding a doctor who will take your Medicare/Medicaid but what's harder is finding a doctor who will write you the pain meds you need. Most doctors in this area are so scared of the DEA and DPS that they are extremely hesitant to write for narcotic pain meds. Have you seen a orthopedic surgeon about having something done for your back? There are a lot of new procedures that are minimally invasive with short recovery times. It's not like the back surgeries they did even 10 years ago. The only pain management doctor I know personally is the one my dad sees here in Arlington. If you are im this area let me know and I'll give you his name. Good luck and take care!

Yea but the Doctors are allowing this to go on as well. They know how very effective these meds are to people and how much it gives people a generally better quality of life. They should be coming together and telling the government asses, that think they are doing a good thing, yea bust the ass of the jerks that are ruining this for all of us! But STOP GETTING IN BETWEEN DOCTORS AND PATIENTS! ! These good doctors need to stand with all of the "supposedly free" Americans. Safety and p.c. bullshiite is destroying this country. And they wonder why Trump is winning.

I don't see Dr. Christopher Ince, but I know who he is. He's board certified in Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine. My doctor knows him and says he's a good doctor. He won't just prescribe pills or follow behind another doctor. He'll probably want to try other treatments before he goes the route of opiate therapy. These days doctors are under the microscope and their going to try everything before opiate therapy so there's no question about you being on long term opiate therapy. Gone are the days of doctors prescribing opiates because you say you hurt. Right now is a bad time to be changing pain management doctors because you'll be repeating scans, emgs, other diagnostics, taking non-narcotic medicines and medical procedures. Just like you've never been in pain management. I had this all happen to me 5 years ago when my original doctor retired. Even with medical records in 2 folders about 8 inches thick (both). I had to repeat a lot of stuff all over again to get back to what I was taking and now I'm on even more, but I'm doing better because of the medication increase. Good luck to anyone changing doctors because it's back to square one these days...

Dr Ince - he's in hurst. He's a pain specialist. My brother sees him after having a rollover ejection last summer, breaking his neck and shattering every other bone! He seems content w the doctor.

Andorra, you need to see a Pain Management Dr. They can prescribe you extended release pain meds that last 12 hours, if they think they are indicated.

I have fibromyalgia and RA also, along with OA, migraines, chronic lower back pain, and spondylosis in my neck. I have never been able to get anything stronger than Tylenol III since they changed the class of hydrocodone which never worked for me to begin with. My rheumatologist has me on tramadol and flexaril for pain but that stuff doesn't work either. I don't want to have to take a handful of these meds to get them to work. I just want 1 drug that will knock my pain out fast. Do I need to see a pain management dr in order to get any stronger meds and does anyone know of one in Fort Worth that prescribes good ones that actually work?, ,

TexasMD, for those that have been on strong pain meds for a while, especially at high doses, it will not be pleasant to reduce the dosage or to stop taking it all together for a whlie. But, it is better than not having your pain treated at all. Once someone has been off of the pain meds for a while, they require lower doses and often meds that arent as strong as what they were on before. They also need to adjust their life style and use non medications forms of pain management. I've heard a lot of reasons, ie excuses, as to why someone can't, ie won't, do this but is is getting to where if you want to continue to have your pain managed, you have no choice. It is better to reduce some of your activity than to not be able to do any of the things you want to do. let alone need to do.

Some physicians tell patients the "can not" prescribe but really mean "will not" prescribe. We have a few folks call saying that and we find out that their MD has been busted by the feds for fraudulent prescribing (feeding prescriptions to those with no medical justification). I just hope the real patients are taken care of but unfortunately some (or maybe many) have become used to their levels of medications and are reluctant to reduce or self manage without meds.

TexasMD, what you said about Texas applies to every other state. I know that many drs lie to patients and tell them these things which creates and adds to the misinformation. We need to trust our drs to a point, but not so much that we don't verify what they tell us. Drs aren't perfect, they do make mistakes. And sadly, some lie.

I remember when Soma first came out. Our dr wanted to prescribe it for my severe muscle spasms and was telling me it was much safer than valium. I told him that I didn't take medications that were just out on the market and that I was willing to bet him that it wouldn't be long before they discovered that Soma had the same dangers as Valium, if not worse, he replied "you're probably right."

I do not wish to be confrontational but there are so many half truths and guesses in these posts that I almost do not know where to begin.
Soma rhymes with coma. I do not know of any physicians who will prescribe Soma because of its side effects. Not saying it does not have some application but very rare.
The DEA and FDA are NOT preventing legitimate prescribers dosing appropriately. They are coming down on criminal activities by some physicians, Nurse Practitioners and Pharmacists but only when there are life and death type concerns. The local DPS and Medical Boards are really the controllers of prescribing habits. If you want the facts google the Texas Medical Board Rules Chapter 170. It is not hard to read and will define clearly the rules for the treatment of pain in Texas.
Do not bother feeding the mouths of lawyers by mounting a legal battle, though I am not sure which attorney would take the suit anyway. The best approach if you want the rules to change is to approach your local state representatives (who were voted into office). Tell them the story and how you are affected. They can take this to the Health Committee in Austin next spring (when the house is in session) and if all agree then changes would be made. Realistically however do not expect change. There are too many deaths due to overdose of medications for the rules to be relaxed, and it is incumbent on prescribers to ensure there is a legitimate reason for the meds being prescribed, don't you agree!!
Finally do you realize that the USA consumes over 90%, and arguably over 99% of the WORLDS production of Hydrocodone. There may be other drugs in other first world countries that are being used but my understanding from colleagues in the UK, France and Germany is that they do not advocate long term treatment by oral medications except for extremely rare cases such as terminal cancer etc.
I am confident that this post will be hated by those who "need drugs" but these are the facts as of today.
