Feeling hopeless

I have been in chronic pain for close to 11 years. The pain is in my left shoulder and radiates throughout my neck, back, chest and down my left arm. I have seen countless family doctors and been in the emergency room more times than I care to remember. The pain has of course gotten worse as the years progress. I have had testing done and was recently given a MRI which they didn't find anything and the orthopedic surgeon suggested that they do exploratory surgery but he wants over $1000 dollars down before they operate!!! I have insurance but obviously not complete coverage. I AM IN SO MUCH PAIN! And I have begged....literally begged doctors for help and they won't! I don't know what to do anymore. The pain is everyday and all the time. I was told that it looks to be nerve damage but they aren't 100% sure.

Does anyone know of a doctor in or around this area ( scottsville, glasgow, bowling green, cave city....where ever) that would actually help me? And what I mean is try to give me some type of relief. I CANNOT AFFORD SURGERY UNLESS THEY ARE WILLING TO DO IT W/OUT A DOWN PAYMENT....and when I mention anything to help with the pain I am instantly treated like a damn pill head and my record is squeaky clean! I haven't ever taken narcotics except after I had three c-sections. I feel like these doctors think I'm out for pills but what I want is to be fixed. Healed. But until someone can figure out what the hell is wrong with me.....why can't they give me something so I can function and not writhe in pain all the time?! If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.

I can't take this pain much longer.:(

Yeah good luck with finding one. I have been in constant pain for 3 Years now with my back.I use to be able to do whatever I wanted, then all the sudden i wake up one day in pain and cant do half as much as I use to. Ive been to Dr. All over Bg and Glassgow all they seem to know is loose wait and it will get better.I call BS on them...still suffering

so sorry to hear this.first of all politicans,insurance companys has put a hurt on drs doing the job that they are trained for.age matters to most drs,if you are under 40-45 they in most cases don't want to write pain meds.and yes I know pain meds are not what all people are looking for.some of us do want to be at least some what pain free.cps has a new office in b.g.and they have over 50 offices in other states,tenn is as close as I know of.get on the web go to comprehensive pain specialist web site and give this a try.some quality of life is all that some of us chronic pain suffers ask for and get treated like drug seeking addicts.yes we do become dependant on pain meds after taking them for any length of time,that is just how our bodies work after some period of time on the meds.and yes we do start to need more meds after awhile,sorry but our bodies get to where our daily amount of meds stop being as effective.not our fault,just how the body works,and this does not make us drug seekers.after being on pain mads for a short time most of us don't even feel any high from taking meds this is a good thing.hope youfind some help,no one should be denied pain meds just because of some politician trying more failed drug policies on Americas sick and suffering.lets vote radical drug hating politicians out.lets send em to the house!!!

I live with chronic back pain. I don't ask the doctors for pain meds because they can't/won't give it to you. I think if a person is in enough pain, they should help them anyway they can to relieve a person's pain and suffering. No, I do not condone druggies, etc. But a better quality of life without CHRONIC pain by taking a pill would be my choice. I don't trust doctor's anymore. They act like you are coming to them just to get drugs; not answers! I suffer each day...and when the pain gets really bad, I just continue to suffer. Don't plan on going to doctors anymore!!!! I'm done with 'em! I'll stay at home and suffer.

Sorry, you guys are getting lumped in with all the druggies lying to get pain meds. Blame the druggies for ruining it for everyone else.
