or you can admit that you're an addict and get off the pills.

Best bet is to travel to Knoxville, better Drs. and better offices. The way it is looking right now, Chavin may be closing the doors within a years time. Also, if your appt. is at 10:00, you probably will be sitting in the waiting room for 2-3 hours before you get called to a exam room and there you'll have another hour wait. They are not prompt! I would suggest you do your research and find a quality Dr. if you are in pain, if you're looking for pills then stick around morristown!!!

Well at least you admit you have a problem. You know most addicts don't realize that even though they might be having legitimate pain, it doesn't mean that you're are not addicted to the drugs you're taking. Pain does not keep your brain from becoming dependent on these drugs. And when your brain becomes dependent, it changes your way of thinking and your perception of pain. Your body stops producing pain killing endorphins, endorphins that would have naturally alleviated the pain. But now, since these endorphins are gone, you depend on these drugs to supplement them. Since these endorphins are produced in small doses throughout the day(even when you're not in pain), and at night to help you sleep. Your brain tells you that you're in pain or need drugs to feel normal. Ask yourself this, If you were to stop taking these medications, how would you feel? Pain?, nausea?, vomiting?, anxiety?, sleeplessness?, withdrawals? If the answer is yes, it has already affected your brain and you are addicted. If the answer is NO. Stop taking them for a day or two and then re-read the question. If it's still no great. Stop taking them and try to let your body heal itself without putting poison in it. But you and I both know the truth(even if you're denying it)PAIN CLINICS ARE FOR ADDICTS. How do I come to this conclusion??? You told me this big sad story about all your operations and surgeries. You certainly did not pay for these yourself. Your insurance did. So why isn't your primary care doctor, or surgeon, or orthopedic, or your DPT writing you prescriptions for pain pills? They love money, don't they? Of course they do, but they're not going to risk their license for a few extra bucks, writing narcotics Rx's to an addict. Sorry friend, when the doctor who preformed these procedures on you, that caused you so much pain to begin with, wont wright you Rx's, there is something to be said about that. You are a junkie, you just don't know it yet.

Look at what you wrote.(need pain meds) You don't every NEED pain meds. A need would indicate you require it for survival. Your whinny ass WANTS pain meds. No one, no one person in the history of man has ever died from pain. You don't need pain meds, that sounds like junkie talk.

You are just a troll, trying to find some sort of gratification by putting someone else down and attempting to sound all high and mighty while doing so. Addiction and dependence are two different things. Addiction is the abuse of something, dependence is the need for something. Your reply to that is probably going to be, "if you need something then you're addicted to it". If a person were to have 1-2 drinks after work everyday do you call him/her an alcoholic? Probably not, as compared to the person who has a screwdriver for breakfast, a six-pack for lunch, and a bottle of Jack for dinner. My point being is addiction is the constant want for something (pills, sex, alcohol, or even ice cream), and dependence is the need for it. Many people with chronic pain don't want to take pills, but they need to so they can work and take care of their family. Addicts don't care too much about anything except getting their next fix. In saying that, when a person takes a narcotic for pain it does what it is supposed to, blocks the pain receptors in the brain and there is no "high". If a person who isn't in pain takes a narcotic they will feel a sense of euphoria, the " high".
