I have taken methadone for about 9 yrs. and other pain medicines before that. I have chronic pain post polio syndrome, Degenerative arthritis, Degenerative disc. in back due to severe Scoliosis. New laws passed , so my Doctor stopped doing pain management, not sure why. The pain management clinics are expensive and they do not take medicaid. I need a Doctor for pain management that can prescribe pain medication, but who takes medicaid patients. The Disable and poor are out of luck now. Need Doctor from south Arkansas

I'm sorry, but even for any listings I find in your area, I have no way of knowing what types of insurance they accept.

Have you tried asking your doctor for a referral somewhere else?

Have you tried contacting your local Medicaid office to see if they have a list of doctors that accept it?

What medication where you referring to, did you mean Methadone?

Yes, methodone. I have spoke with Doctor and medicaid. They say, if I can find one, let them know and the Doctor will give me a referaal.

I too am suffering the exact same medical problems as you are. I have degenerative disc disease and sciatica in both legs. I have only medicaid as insurance and would be grateful if you could let me know if you find a doctor that is willing to help. I share your frustration with "the system" and I will do the same for you. Today I found a web page called and under the heading" Doctors who will prescribe pain medicine in arkansas". It has a list of doctors in the Little Rock area that will prescribe pain meds, but I'm not sure if they accept medicaid. I am going to check out and you may want to do the same. Good luck.

Do you know if Arkansas Pain management will prescribe Schedule2 narcotics? I have been on methadone for 16 yrs. for pain and need to probably continue. I was DISMISSED from Dr. Ackermans' pain management for offering to give my appointment to a patient that had driven o7i5 miles, one way, on the wrong day. She was 80 yrs. old and was told to take my seat. THEN, Dr. Ackerman wrote the wrong prescription for me. When I pointed it out, the receptionist said I was being disruptive. SOOOOO, I'm in a mess, right now. HELP, ANYONE!

I too, feel everyones pain, literally!! I have fibro. peripheral neuropathy, 7 ruptured discs, a broken hip that never works right, 1" shorter than the other and hurts with every step. No Dr. I can find wants to ADEQUATELY treat my pain. Not even half way. Now I live in bed, down to 97lbs. @ 5'7" and because I'm 67 years old "they" just say "she's old, let her die". Well, heck with that!! I'm going to fight back. There are over 100 million people in the US, who are not treated or undertreated for pain! Let's do something about it!

Man, i've got a herniated disc as well, Arkansas is the s***tiest place to live if you have a condition where you need opiate narcotic pain medication- There are about half the Drs in town will not write you any kind of pain med, only wanna do injections and epidurals, forget that, but the other half will write you the meds you need, completely depend on the Dr. If you do get stuck going to one of the Pain Referall Doctors and he doesn't believe in Narcotic pain Medicine, just nod and shake and tell him thanks, but no thanks, i'm going to get a second opinion....or third opinion if you have to until you get the relief you need!

This sounds better than being turned away bc no one is taking new medicine patients... Could you help by providing the information since now that hydrocodone is schedule 2 our pcp's are no longer prescribing nerve meds... Or pain meds or muscle relaxing agents... I'm disabled and cannot survive this way... I was on methedone at one time.. I cannot afford to be in those clinics which treat addicts not set up 4 pain management... And the methedone Tore my body up... Any help finding someone who will see me is a blessing...

tired of pain Says:

I agree, I recently moved to AR, as I was reunited with my HS sweetheart and we are getting married but I had 2 major neck surgeries, I had every level of my lumbar spine fused, a total lamentomy, rods in my back and a broken tailbone. The Dr that I had prior was wonderful, however, I can not go back and fourth. The new Dr that I have, is not as compasionate and I am sure that its because they have way to many patients. The bottom line is that the Gov, is taking control of our healthcare without even knowing us! This is hurting the folks who are truly dealing with pain so bad that all you can do is lay flat on your back! The Dr's are saying they can only write this amount or that amount? It should be based on the Dr, who is the one taking care of the patient and not the Dr who are only able to write this much or that much! I have a very high tolerance for pain med,s. So I am going with the pain pump, hoping that it works. If anyone has any info on experience with a pain pump, please let me know but we as Americans, need to start something! I just am not sure where to begin? Anyone have a suggestions? No one should spend their life, flat on their back as I have for the past 2.5 months, I have had no life and its really unfair as the Gov, has never done a exam on me so how can they tell the Doctors, what they are allowed to prescribe! Spend a day in our Bodies, maybe then it will wake up their eyes!
