Is it possible to just make an appt with Dr Webb in Huntington. Do u need a referral or can u just schedule an appt. How does this first appt work. What meds does he write. I know of a few from the area that go to get rid of their meds but I need mine and was wondering how it works with him. Any info would help. Are there certain days he sees new patients and does appt take long time. How many appt till he treats pain.

There are all kinds of other ways available to people to treat chronic pain besides taking pain meds. Educate yourself,do some research. They're out there,much better than a quick fix with addictive pain meds that in the end make your pain much worse and you're addiction much stronger. Do yourself a favor.

You have to get a packet from Dr. Webb's office someone that goes already can get u one or you can go in and ask for one if you had a referral that would be great. Dr. Webb does not play around you will be pisssed when you go to see him and you better be clean. You not only see him but his Eric is a psychologist and you also go to group meetings with your peers who also suffer it is a great place for people who are really trying to manage their pain it isn't for those seeking a way to get meds he does call you in for a pill count so you must also have a phone. HE was my father's Dr. for many years like 12 I believe. And yes they accept insurance. Dr. Webb is the real thing if you are trying to manage your pain or even your addiction if you are already at that point. Do not tell them if you have ever gotten them from another source besides a Dr. if you have never received a scrpit of your own tell them you was going to florida to get your meds they do not keep records and doc Webb cannot ask for them. I hope this helps and I do hope that you are for real bc if not your wasting your time. They can tell the one's that are just trying to get drugs also you have to have an MRI.

Dr. Webb is a good Dr. if you really have chronic pain, but his son Eric is not the only psychologist there, and I never had to go to group meetings. And yes, u do need a referral, then u have 2 fill out a bunch of paper work. He will not write u meds the 1st time u see him, if i'm not mistaken u will get your meds on your 2nd appointment. BTW, I was never pill counted & I went there for 6 yrs. Since you're so curious, he does write oxycontin, roxycodone (boosters), and alprazalam (xanax).... But if u really want help, u will deal with the pain, and go on with life. None of these meds will completely take away your pain. All you are doing is getting addicted to drugs and becoming dependant on them. That is why I quit going, and proud to say I've been off all medications for 15 yrs. Do like I do, tolerate it and move on with your life. Try doing stretches, exercise, walking, etc.

I do agree with pain mang. Life can get so bad with pain some think about ending life. Other than living in pain all the time. You dont know how it is until you have lived in someone elses shoes. Now if you do go to pain mang. stay away from opana
that was a great meds before they changed it. Now I think it passes right throu you. Stay with OXY and rocy. that is the best you can take. Alot of docs want to put you on opana. Stay away.

Ok for u to say this you have no idea what true pain is. I was a pro fighter for most my life, motor cross MMA and fought w the best,I know all about pain and yes for many years i delt with it just cause i thought it made me tough.. U know pain is just weakness leaving the body kinda shit. But now im at the point where i rather piss on my self then walk 6 steps to the bathroom cause of my pain... I scream in my sleep from pain when i sleep. and well i can go all day. But truth is there is real pain out there that can only be helped....helped mind u not taken a way true pain will never go away but it will help u manage it to a point that u can start trying to get your life back on trac. And it is true if u have true true pain u can not get high on pain pills.Plus if u want ur pain helped u will take it as u need it not over do it. So again anyone that says man up and take it... Has no idea what 24hr a day non stop neveer goes away not even for a second kinda of pain. IMO

You sound like a dreamer man. You can't even make sense when writing in the English language. You say you were an MMA fighter and everyone just lost it when they read your comments. Again you sound like a dreamer, come and join the real world with the rest of us.

if your really going to a pain C. for help. DO NOT
tell anyone anything about where you go what you get or anything. You are there for yourself and no one else. And if someone is out there to get help from a
pain C. ask your reg doctor or the hospital you go to. and if you dont get any help ask your reg doctor who you should change to. So you can get some help. And go to church and ask for them to pray for you. And if you really need it GOD will hep you get there.
But always keep your mouth closed and never say anything. Someone can cause you alot of trouble and if you really need that help you have no bis braging about it because you are doing something you do not need to be doing. I hope i have helped someone.

Actually the old school method of treating pain is opiates and morphine until the 1930's you could get a bottle of elixir that contained opium derivatives. Not everyone on pain medication gets addicted when taken as properly prescribed and only as needed. Man up and take the pain well that would depend on the pain. I agree that some people dont need to be on pain medications for minor health problems or pain, but there is also a majority of persons that have a legitimate need for pain medication. Someone that is dying of cancer or has some other type of debilitating disease should not be told to man up and take the pain. Why in the world would someone choose to lay and suffer when there is medication that can help ease there pain to where it is bearable and increase their quality of life. My grandfather worked in the coal mines from the time he was 16 and he retired at 62 having put in almost 50 years of work in the mines where at times he had to crawl on his belly or stay squattted down or bent over because they were mining in 3 to 4 feet. He worked hard his whole life and provided for my grandmother and their children. Now that he is older and can not work there is nothing wrong with him taking his medication as it is prescribed to him so that he can play with my children (his great grand children) he is a tough ol' man and for a long time he didn't want to be put on any medicine bc people like you and others who say things like "man up" or think that he is weak or less of a man because he chooses to spend the rest of his days happy and able to work in the garden or do little things around the house. True, he could take no medicine and practically be bed ridden and not able to enjoy life, or and thank GOD he chooses to take his pain medicine and have a decent quality of life in being able to still do things and help out my grandfather feels as if he is still contributing to the household instead of feeling as if he is a burden and if it wasn't for his medication I believe my papaw would have just given up on life years ago and would probably not still be with us.So although not everyone needs pain meds you can not judge everyone the same and bc some people get theirs illegally and abuse them does not make everyone a drug addict or a bad person. Would you tell someone with high blood pressure or diabetes to man up and not take their meds in 80% of those cases proper diet and exercise and not being overweight would increase their quality of life and by losing wieght and taking care of themselves they wouldn't need their medication either there are natural healthy ways to combat many of the illnesses and diseases that afflict those in this area, yet pain medicine is the one that people get shunned for using. Just think about the whole picture next time and remember not everyone is the same.

The other options out there besides addictive pain pills that will cause you to have even more pain,should be tried first.

There are also other ways of treating pain besides addictive pain meds. Those should be the first option to not lay and suffer.

I agree I am not saying that addictive pain medication is the first option and I also stated that a person should not be giving the oxy/roxy type of drug until they become opoid tolerant meaning that they started out on something less powerful and less addictive. Alternative treatments should be tried first. When I was first dealing with my pain I tried herbal remedies and yoga and acupuncture. To be honest the yoga does help, but I can only do the yoga now in conjunction with pain medication that will help keep my core strong and less stress on my back. I also tried steroid shots and muscle relaxers that didn't help at all. My issue was with those who said that people should just suck it up and deal with the pain it is up to the person and their doctor to find the best treatment method for each patient. I understand that a lot of people in this area have been known to abuse medication and that is why a lot of negativity has been associated with pain medication, however when taken as prescribed and for legitimate chronic health issues these pain medications do allow a person to improve their quality of life and are once again be able to function and do return to doing activities that they had to give up do to chronic pain.
