Pain Clinic Tn That Needs No Referral

Chronic pain in knees, elbows, neck (also degeneration). Holding down a job with this pain is impossible. Interfers with sleep, walking, standing, just plain daily living. I have a disabled child (5 yrs. & 70 lbs.) and has to be lifted. Pain from doing this is unbearable. Depression is a real problem. No doctor will treat me, have no insurance or money. Right at this time, I can't afford the meds or the doctor, but I need the help desperately.

@horsefly,

Sorry to hear about this intense pain you've been dealing with. Have you considered looking into any types of patient assistance programs or things of that nature? From what I understand, there are some drug manufacturers who offers these programs for patients who can't afford the full cost of their medication(s). It's really something to ask your pharmacy about if you don't currently have a doctor to refer back to.

Another suggestion I would look into, based on your description of not having much money, is to research natural alternatives that may be cheaper than prescription drugs. One example would be to grow your own medical cannabis, as it may be helpful for depression and taking your mind off of the pain. Essential oils or other topical pain creams may also provide some additional relief. These can be found at various health food stores or online at reasonable prices (in my opinion).

I hope this helps! Does anyone else have some suggestions?
