Hi Dani,

I'm sorry to hear about your troubles with finding a new doctor, nearby. In regards to that, I have listed below a couple websites specific to locating pain management doctors in a given area. All you have to do is input your city or zip code for narrowed results:
{link removed because site no longer exists}

You can give this other page a try too if you come up with different results for some reason or another:
wellness.com/find/pain%20management%20specialist

Many of the results you find (in one or both of the links above) also list a phone number for that specific doctor; I'd consider calling up a number of them to see if they are accepting new patients; some aren't, but most usually are. You'll also want to ask them about your insurance and what it might cover, or if there are any other fees that you should be aware of.

I hope this helps!

Don't know if you've ever heard of Suboxone. It was originally used to treat opioid addiction but was found to control pain as well. Some pain management clinics are now treating long term pain with it.
In the initial stage of use there is a "high" of sorts but once the medicine builds in the system the "high" goes away and pain management as well as physical withdrawal symptoms cease. Thus the original treatment for opioid addiction.
So if you are unable to find a pain mgmt Dr then could possibly try one for opioid addiction. Just a thought.
