You need a pain management Doctor, go to www.doctorsforpain.com or www.raceagainstpain.com. Both of those websites lists pain Doctor's all over the US and all you need to do is go through their lists, write the names of Doc's that might be close to you, and then start calling.
It took me 6 tries to find a good pain management Doctor, so do not dispair if you don't find one right away, keep on trying and the victor will be yours! Good luck with your search!
