I have had lower back surgery L4-5 in 2001 re-injured in 2002 and an cervical fusion without disc just a graft and a plate this was done in 2009 and have had back pain ever since now and developing thorasic pain somewhere around T11 or twelve. I have been to at least 4 pain management doctors and received 10.325 hydrocodone. Since it became a schedule 2 narcotic I was taken off them and given. Tramadol 50mg they do nothing this is from my current doctor. I need something stronger. I don't abuse the medication but I am in constant pain. I took the hydrocodone for 6 years now have to struggle to even walk my dog and drive. I have never done anything like this before looking for some kind of relief. i even tried an neurospinal stimulator that did not work. I live in Texas and see no end in sight except more surgery. My lower back has a tear in the disc at L4-5 and I have a small tear at C3-4. Ever since I had both surgery's the pain has gotten and the cervical surgery caused more problems with nerves and throat and left inner ear. I don't know what else to say except maybe help!!!

Well there a couple of things I left out the original. First let me correct a statement I am not looking for a doctor to fill prescriptions without seeing me. But I forgot to mention that I have had all the injections that are possible without any success not even a weeks worth can't remember them all I know the most painful was a caudal epidural, also facet, trans dermal an several more. I still have severe pain in my lower back pain level of 6 to seven, thoracic area from 5 to six. Have yet had an MRI in 5 years. I had a good pain management doctor however she is no longer practicing. I do live in Dallas Texas area. I am scheduled to see my current pain management doctor Thursday the 4th he does not seem to interested. It will be a miracle to get any Hydrocodone from him still looking for a doctor that does not believe in what I call torture. I don't know else to phrase it I am mostly bed ridden sleeping on an laying on heating pads all day. Would appreciate an compassionate doctor that understands my Illness. Any suggestions would appreciated also how do I find a doctor from this website from my area that would help me?

If you live in or around the DFW AREA go see Dr. Saeid Aryan. He is at Axis Brain & Spine of Beech St. He is a blessing in disguise. I can't say enough good things about Dr Aryan except he is AWESOME. He listens 2 your complaints and problems and he doesn't look at you like the other doctors do like you're not in any pain at all he sends you for special MRIs and x-rays that are different from the other ones and he gets a better look at what's going on with your back I went to him because none of my doctors would listen to my severe back pain and come to find out I needed surgery and dr. Aryan couldn't see how I was even walking around. like I said he is a godsend and God bless him for getting into the medical field because I don't know what I would do without him.
