I had shoulder surgery back in 2006 and since then have been in chronic pain. I have tried everything from physical therapy to a personal trainer. I am a senior in college and love going to the gym but have been forced to stop going completely due to the chronic pain in my shoulder. I have numerous MRI's and everything comes back negative and I am sent home with "dont lift heavy, dont lift above your head". Sometimes when I wake up in the morning (if i sleep on my shoulder by accident) I am in such severe pain I can barely drive to my AM college classes. I have been to 1 PM doctor (for 1 visit) and he said I am "too young" to start pain meds and wrote me a script for 20 perc 5's. I am turning 23 in a few months and this is REALLY affecting my way of life. I am becoming increasinly depressed due to this. Can anyone recommend me a PM doctor OR clinic who will listen to my needs and wants and help me out? I am NOT a drug user (dont even smoke pot) and do NOT have any interest in selling medication. I am willing to sign a pain contract if needed. I dont understand, oxycontin OP's arent even abusable, what are doctors so afraid of? Please someone help me. Unforunately I because of the pain I have taken opiods in the past only when desperately needed, so I am a opiate tolerant and educated (i researched the drug heavily before using) I understand that it is addicting but everyone knows that perc 5-10's once or twice a day isn't going to cut it for severe pain. The science of half lifes will agree with me. Please someone e-mail me and let me know a doctor who will understand.
