My doctor is wanting to send me to a pain clinic here in Somerset. However, I have heard some very negative things about them. Do they often get you hooked on pain meds? I don't want that. are ther good pain clinics here as well as bad? If so, which are the good ones?

My insurance company is requiring me to go to a pain management clinic as well before they will help me pay for my much needed surgery. I have never hear anything good about pain clinics either, they pretty much toss pain meds at anyone they can and do get people hooked (thats what I have heard). I chose not to do that because like you, I don't want to get hooked either. I am not sure what your situation is, you may be in great need of pain medication for legit medical reasons, in that case you should look into it but just be very cautious about it. Hope that helps a little!:)

They sent my mother to the one n London . They are REALLY strict. She has to go every month. She sets for over 4-5 hours each time. It is a two hour drive one way. She has seen a doctor n person twice. Has to do conference meeting over computer. She is n so much pain all the time but they will not increase her medicines or change them. Her back is so bad no surgery will help. Shots not option because her back has crunched up to where they can't tell where her spinal cord is. She couldn't afford surgery when was option now to late. She sets with tears n her eyes from pain. Has to walk with cane. So please don't wait to long. Good luck .
