I have been getting my pain meds for my degenerative disease from my primary physician for about 2 years now. He has recently sent me to a pain management clinic and the pain clinic did a physical and review of my medical history and stated I needed injections. They also stated because of the risk and how bad my neck was they could not do them in house like they normally do and they sent me to a neurosurgeon. The surgeon then sent me to have bilateral cervical faucet injections. Well they did not help at all they only made me eat more....lol Sorry for all the ramblings my question is. What does a pain management center really do? Did my doctor send me there because with all these new laws and deaths around pain meds he is scared to keep writing my scripts. I just feel like everyone is sending me some where else and no one is really helping me. Should I go back to this pain management center and tell them well I had them done and it did not help? I hope they don't make me try them again. They were awful and not helpful at all. Can the pain management center just take over my total care and start issuing my pain meds. I mean what else do they do besides PT and injections? My primary doctor is a great guy i would hate to make him feel uncomfortable but I need my pain meds or I would not be able to work. Thanks for any advise you can give me in references to a pain management clinic.
