So sad that you need to bash your country bc experience has shown illicit drugs are not the only front on the drug war.As a recovering addict, chronic pain SURVIVOR-and front line first responder I see the effects of powerful narcotic meds destroying a generation of young ill informed pain patients . So excuse me if you think you know more then the physicians trying to regain some assemblence of there medical ethics to FIRST DO NO HARM. What about self control and accountability? God bless the true sick and suffering just trying to get some relief sharing their experience strength and hope with others.

Bob, Donna, and Jo, I have been through a lot of people to help me find another Pain Mgmt Physician but one that cares about you and not just pen and paper. If you choose to, you will need to have all Mri's, Up to date (last 3 to five years). A PCP for a referral and maybe travel 45 minutes to the Gastonia, Charlotte NC areas. Gaston Pain Provider's in Gastonia are great, Carolina Pain Mgmt Clinic in Charlotte are good, Laudenium Medical in Charlotte is great, Charlotte Pain Clinic and Metrolina Pain in Charlotte NC are all Clinics that basically just get you back to what works for you in past. But never a guarantee. Some do back ground checks, monthly pill counts and U/A's at each visit. Cash only at Gastonia, Metrolina, and Laudenium. Not sure about Carolina, or Charlotte Pain . But I know that you have to be able to provide evidence that you have been treated before and the notes of the last pain doctor. Too many people are sharing and selling so that really is the main reason for the documentation and back ground checks. All these usually write after first visit with the exception of Charlotte and Carolina. Just Google Pain Mgmt in Charlotte NC. Also another is South East Pain at CMC Hospital. They were very helpful in getting me back to my regular medication. It's hard for anyone to guarantee that they will write. But from my experience and knowledge of others. These all are good and how I found out was I talked to my Pharmacist. I have been through a series of events and I need certain amount of medications to get me through the day. I asked her if she would provide me with a list of Dr's in my area that wrote what I was getting. She took her pen and wrote me a list of Dr's that she knew that wrote the medication that I needed. And it paid off. I had my Primary Care refer me to 2 of the 5. And after first one I cancel the other appt. That's been 3 years ago and since he left the Clinic and open his on. Taking only a hand full with him. So try these. They will help you out. Pain is awful especially when it's not noticeable and you are around healthy people. No one or no two of us handles pain the same way. So each person is tolerable to different levels. I am happy to help. Hope you get the right Dr as it might take one or two tries. I am a people person so I can get along with about anyone. But I have been through a series of Dr's that only care about the money and doesn't really care how your daily dealings are. Well good luck with your hunt for Pain Relief.

I'm in Boiling Springs, NC. I have 5 bulging in my lower back. From what I understand, you have to go to your regular doctor and have him refer you to a pain clinic. It kind of sucks but it's the only way to get pain meds anymore because so many people abuse them. Hope that helps you. Naproxen will take out some of the swelling which will help also if you don't have heart problems. Maybe you can. Try some aleve. That's the over the counter name

Hi. I just had a total hip replacement in Gastonia and have 5 bulging discs in my lower back the doc will stop prescribing me pain meds in 3 weeks and send me to a pain clinic. Those docs r really good. Just wanted to say thanks for posting about the pain clinic in Gastonia. I didn't know about that one. From what I hear, not many people like the one in Shelby

What is a background ck from a pain clinic? Honestly, that is total B.S.! What are they looking for exactly? No one is perfect as we all have made mistakes.

In SC, Oak Tree Medical runs a bunch of Pain Management clinics. That is where Dr. Rubel works through, both in Anderson and Spartanburg. They have offices in Greenville and various other towns in the North Central area. I used to see Dr. Rebecca Holdren on Grove Rd, Greenville. I saw her for 10 years and thought she was awesome. She DID cut my Morphine in half when I first came from VT and I didn't blame her! At my 2nd appointment, when my drug panel results were back, she increased the meds to my usual level. In my opinion, Dr. Holdren is much better than Dr. Rubel (who sees 100 patients a day and comes in with your refills already printed--without checking in). All in all, I've never had a problem with either of them OR my Doctor in VT!

I remember when I first started Pain Management I had to go to a Psychologist who specialized in assessing risk for addiction every week, for 8 weeks, prior to the Psychiatrist (Pain Management Doctor) prescribing anything addictive. It certainly wasn't necessary to be perfect, as I am Bipolar II. Folks with Bipolar Disorder are 50% more likely to have an addiction. I was obviously still approved. So, just don't assume people walk into a Pain Clinic and are given narcotics.

Also, I think a lot of it has to do with how the patient presents him/herself. I see a lot of people get demanding, emotional and aggressive-- pushy instead of presenting the Doctor with some research you've done, or an idea you have, and asking what they think about that. For instance, I have a hereditary degenerative disorder. My father has it also. Morphine worked really well for him and still does. So, theoretically it made sense for me to start off with Morphine. I approached my Doctor like that. I didn't say, "I am in severe pain and I need you to prescribe me a REAL narcotic." Asking like that doesn't make the Doctor sympathetic about the severe pain you're in! It makes him/her worry about you drug seeking, being an addict and them losing their license.

I wish you all the best of luck. May you have relief from your pain! If you are seeking a prescriber in SC, do give Oak Tree a try!

This is a LONG TIME LATER I realize. I'm hoping you found a way to reduce your pain.

If you are in a bad situation now, have you tried Pain Management Associates on Skylynn Dr. in Spartanburg? I see their main Doctor, whose name is Rubel. All he does is Pain Management, so he's not afraid of medication. Visits are VERY brief, unless you point out having a problem. He is quick to order MRIs and other tests, and refer to specialists.

OR There is another branch of Pain Management Associates on Grove St. in Greenville. Dr. Rebecca Holdren is very smart and personable. I really liked her (but moved to Spartanburg). She had GREAT suggestions for medications. Most testing equipment/personnel are right at that facility AND they have their own pharmacy! SO convenient! That's where I'd go if I was looking for a Doc myself.

I live in Spartanburg SC. I am from VT, but have lived here for 10 years. I've been in Pain Management treatment for 15 years. I am on a 75mcg patch, 3- 30mg morphine ir, 4- 20mg baclofen, etc, etc a day. This is a step down. Prior to the Patch, I was on 16mg of Hydromorphone ER (Dilaudid ER) a day. Yes, I'm all f****d up. It'd take a lot of space and be boring to explain. Suffice to say a trained Pain Management Doc wouldn't be prescribing this stuff unless something serious was going on! Anyway...

These meds have become a gilded cage! They DON'T take away pain. Let's just get that out there. Opiates numb out/shut off the part of your brain that panics and tells you to "Kick a$$ or RUN!!!" when something is causing you EXTREME PAIN. In that way, they also take away your motivation to rehab yourself: look at laser surgery, disc replacement, pain psychology- any number of things you might do if your PANIC was relieved and your brain not tricked by opiates. SOME people function brilliantly using opiates because the effect seems to remain very narrow and specific. Their basic MOTIVATION remains intact. Others of us become debilitated "Couch Zombies". The numbing has spilled over into ALL of MY LIFE. Due to my condition(s) it was easy to get disability. I have felt no drive to rehab myself back to work, despite loving my job. I am emotionally disconnected from my husband and my children. I feel very little about anything- except a wave of pain for what I'm missing and some desperation. I want to be myself again. I WANT to feel...even if I'm a 9 on the pain scale instead of a 6.

When I wanted to wean down on my pain meds in VT, it was no trouble at all. I was lucky enough to have a psychiatrist, the type of doc whose med school training SPECIALIZES their knowledge to rehab, recovery and pain management. He just asked me if I wanted Methadone or Suboxone to work with! I chose Methadone. It knocked me out and had such brutal side effects I quit the entire effort.

Here I am in SC, and asked my PM Doc about whether they wean people down on Suboxone/Methadone. He acted like I'd slapped him! He said, "That stuff is only for addicts. Nobody prescribes that down here!"

So, for anyone in the Greenville-Spartanburg area, is it true that "NOBODY PRESCRIBES THAT DOWN HERE" for pain management? That would make me really sad because I'm feeling SO trapped in opiate hell!

Thanks Folks
Mya
