I am a 48 year old male from Memphis, Tn. I had two major car wrecks between 95-00. Ive been taking pain meds for the last fifteen years. It's the only temporary pain relief I have experienced in all this time. I had an excellent doctor in Corinth, Ms and have since moved to Memphis, TN where I am having the most difficult time finding a Pain med prescribing doctor. I live in pain, cant hardly get out of bed amd cant do a simple task without unbearable pain all across my back. Ive exhausted every option I know how to. Ive been to Drs and nurse pracs here and nothing. Ive had numerous nerve blocks, five to be exact, and nothing has made the problem any easier to live with. Im also on Medicare. It shouldn't be this hard to get the meds i need and been proven to need by other doctors. I just don't know what else to do. ANY info whatsoever would be most beneficial.
please go

not everyone is a drug seeking addict. There are legit people that do have pain and have to learn to live with it. These comments that I read sometimes from you sarcastic baboons just proves that you don't know much about pain and living with it. I have seen doctors treat cancer patients like drug seekers and all they wanted was some relief. It sickens me that anyone that complains of being in pain is automatically labeled as a drug seeker. I'm sure someday you may need pain meds to help you but because everyone has this kind of mentality, good luck when you do need it. Im grateful Im healthy and dont need that kind of help and hope that one day I never will. The addicts have ruined it for the people that are really suffering, take it out on them. The system needs to get smarter. Instead of cymbalta being 200 dollars to fill it should be hydrocodone that should cost 200 dollars to fill, then maybe the addicts would stop doctor shopping and ruining it for the people that really do need the help.
good luck in your search person...hope you find relief!

Dr Deflumere is absolutely the very best. But, she does not write prescriptions for narcotics freely. She has helped me and numerous people that I have referred to her. She is very understanding and takes her time with every patient. I highly recommend her to anyone with legitimate pain problems.

I too live w RA and Fibromyalgia. The pain is sometimes unbearable. I am under a drs care, but the prescribed meds are not for pain. I teach special needs students and am far from a narcotic seeking dr. However, I would like to be under the care of a dr that is compassionate to those truly in pain.
