You guys judging whether someone else is in pain or not is very immature! I have chronic pain, I am also against, people snorting them, and over taking them to get high, and selling them! I only take them when the pain in unbearable! No oxy's or anything like that, just a good'ol lortab!.. It helps me mobile when I am in a jammed up position! No, it doesn't take 100% of the pain away, but it does make it alot more tolerable!
I as well know Dr. Kostenko... he is all about getting you healthy, and he does give out good pain meds, He will give you a list of vitamins to take... lol I do not see him, but my ex-husband has for 13 years now! I can give you his phone number if you need it?

just a suggestion, and I realize you will need to visit your doctor for this-but there is a new medication for neuro type pain that helps called Lyrica. It really does work.
As for you other judgemental angry at somethings-some people do have real pain and some want to just get high-please be smart enough to know the difference.
This person was just asking for help-and I hope that is what I provided her or other lurkers on here who are too afraid to join in because of angry people like you.
Lyrica works great! It has made a big difference in my life. It doesnt' dope me up all the time, but it really helps alot with the pain.

Lyrica has been a miracle drug for my husband--he would never ever take a pain pill--no matter what--but when he started taking Lyrica it improved his life so much--he has Multiple--meloma a form of bone caner (in remission). Doctors offered him very very strong drugs for pain--he always refused.

i was in a car accident about a year ago and have been to 2 different chiro's. neither one of them hepled my back. i have pain that shoots down both my legs and my back catches and locks up on me if im on my feet for an hour or so. i live in princeton and it is impossible to see a dr down here for pain not to mention pain medication. i have the x-rays of my back and everything proving i have disks out of place. so if you could give me your docs name and number i would really apperciate it.

I believe the best is not in Beckley, but in Charleston. Dr. Deer, he gave me a pain stimulator implant on my spine to stop chronic back and leg pain and I am virtually pill free and that's great! I sure don't want to live my life on pills. Only once in awhile maybe a tylenol and I take Zonagran for nerve ending pain which is not a narcotic. So if you truly want help and not just pills, he is great! Works out of St. Francis Hospital.....

Try Dr Jafary at the Stanaford Medical Clinic on Stanaford Rd he helps pain wise but he gives ramdom drug screens to make sure ur taking your pain pills and calls u for pill counts soo that keeps the real dope heads out of the office and the pain meds given to the ones who truely need it... or try Dr Rahim i heard he was decent

Get a life people!! If someone is in pain, I believe the highly intelligent doctors in WV can help them! They just need to listen to their doctor! A doctor knows if you TRULY are in pain!! They have other ways of checking than just by asking the patient their symptoms!!

I agree with (cowgirl) and there is no sense in being so rude and hateful over someone asking a simple question *rolls her eyes at the idiots)

Exactly!! I agree with AOL. BP is almost always elevated when you are in pain. There are even some lab tests that can be done to determine if the body is under stress from pain.

there are many reasons mr. Konstenko's phone is hard to find just try finding his office. does legitimate doctors work out of their homes with guard dogs on a long dirt road who only requires an mri and cash to get pain pills. mr. konstenko is not DOCTOR!!!! HE IS THE CANDY MAN FOR PEOPLE WITH ADDICTIONS TO PAIN PILLS!!!!!! he should be doing time in prison isnt that what happens to people when they deal with drugs???? so why is he any different. wv has a huge problem with people addicted to drugs so why dont they start with konstenko to fight the war on DRUGS

Actually, I was looking for a holistic type doctor because I have many allergies to the heavy pharmaceuticals, you people are pretty nasty with your accusations. No wonder people say such nasty things about Beckley
Can make suggestions however DO NOT MIX herbs under any circumstances with pharmaceuticals. Helpful herbs for pain; white willow bark, wood botony, rosemary leaves, raspberry leaves, blue vervain and kelp.

Diet is equally important reduce acid foods such as red meat, coffee, white rice, butter, cheese, refined flour, refined sugar and strawberries.

Increase Alkaline foods such as all vegetables, olive oil, most fruits, brown rice, dried beans and nonfat milk

Drink plenty of filtered water each day.
be careful

As a healthcare professional I would advice you guys to Definately do more investigation before choosing a Dr. I would not choose one based on topix. There are other places to check and i would start by looking to see if lawsuits have ever been filed or licenses have ever been suspended. I am not saying this has happened to those Dr mentioned above. If you honestly are looking for a Dr to take holistic care of you, you should always do your own investigations. Hope you find the right Dr. For you.

Dr. Michael Kostenko is the best holistic physician in these parts. Give him a try and you won't be disappointed.
Yea Kostenko will treat ya REAL good and when you are hopelesly hooked on his remedies you can keep the methadone clinic in business too or perhaps a detox center. Maybe Oxy and Xanax will help you with your allergies
