Doctors Who Will Prescribe Pain Medication In Or Around Picayune Mississippi

Gwen Says:

just moved here two and half months ago and have had no pain care. I have a pain pump installed and was on opana and soma 120 each a month and can't get a doctor here to give me any pain meds and family doc wants me to go to pain clinic but the ones here only do injections which do absolutely nothing for me, been there done that. They act like their scared to death to write a script here and although I live close to Louisiana they don't take Mississippi medicaid.This is no quality of life and there are supposed to be laws about the right to treatment of pain,YEAH RIGHT not here.Please help if anyone knows of pain clinic that takes medicaidhere who give pain meds or one in my area in Louisiana that takes MS medicaid.

Hello, Gwen! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having.

Actually, there aren't any laws regarding your right to pain treatment, there are hospital and medical policies on it, which they often title patient's rights, but no, there are no laws regarding it.

And due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you will have to see a specialist for pain medications. GPs can no longer prescribe them for long-term ongoing use.

Have you tried checking with Medicaid to see if they have a listing of clinic they could give you?

You're luck Mississippi Medicaid pays for Pain Management of chronic pain. Louisiana Medicaid won't pay for it.

What are people like us going to do. The DEA has got to where doctors can write a Prescription for pain but three times I've went to the pain clinic in Southhaven Mississippi and all they want to do is give SHOTS in my back. In 2005 I had an accident that left me in severe pain and drop foot and a year ago I had reversed shoulder replacement that left me in more pain. I told the pain clinic that I didn't want SHOTS in my back and it won't do anything for my shoulder. her reply was, 'no shot in back no pain med.' so I left. We all need to get together and contact the DEA TO SEE IF THEY CAN CHANGE IT. I read that some doctors got together and AND got the DEA to make more rules where people can't get pain meds. if you have a history of long-term pain and prove on MRi they should not say anything to a doctor about giving you pain meds. Please someone HELP chronic patients that are on pain meds and on disability. that's just crazy. in too much pain to work but can't get your meds without going through hell to get it.

Re: Judy (# 16) Expand Referenced Message

U r so so correct!! I have been a chronic pain patient for 25 years and in the last 2 years or so it has become almost impossible to get pain meds even if you're going to a legitimate pain clinic. And it just keeps getting worse and worse and the only ones it hurts are the ones that really need it who will not just turn to illicit drugs. This is the reason that overdose deaths from illicit drugs have skyrocketed in the past 2 years, and if they keep taking our meds from us that truly need them ODs WILL continue to skyrocket. It doesn't take someone very smart to see what is causing the skyrocketing ODs!!!

Laurel Pain Clinic takes Medicaid and Medicare. When you first go you go one time a month for 3 months after that you only have to go 3 months that may be best for your mom

My husband is dying and is on hospice care and they don't want him to take pain medication. I think it is a sin to let someone die in pain when they could help him if they wanted to. All the government is doing is making the street drugs look good to the people who are past the point of careing where they get pain relief
