Hello.

What I can share with you is that there is always help and always hope.

Read through the Tip at the top of this WebMD Back Pain Community that lists the recommended steps for getting back pain treated and diagnosed. For an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment plan, you will need to start with a spinal orthopedic surgeon or spinal orthopedic surgeon. The next step would be to see a pain management specialist that is a physiatrist. This type of specialist focuses on various pain management methods and does not solely rely on prescription medications.

I pray you can get the treatment and relief you need soon.

Hi and welcome to the support group -

Dave has, as always, given you great advise~~


I live in MO (KC area) so am close to KS. I have SSDI along with my hubby's insurance so I can go to MO or KS for my treatments etc.,

get an attorney that handles only disability claims and maybe worker's comp too. You should also show documentation from the worker's comp situation. There may be a way to open that - not sure but maybe. The attorney will not require a fee up front as they will take a percentage of what they collect. They will be able to file for you. You will need to provide all doc's etc that you have seen.

since you are on MO healthnet you will have a struggle with getting a referral to a spine specialist so start with your primary care doc or call your case manager and see what you need to do.

Seeing a pain management specialist is vital as they will help you with pain management control. I see a PHYSIATRIST Pain Specialist - they go deeper into pain management control based on patients needs.

http://www.spineuniverse.com/treatments/what-physiatrist

You should see if you can go to a teaching university hospital (has to be on MO side) as they would have the best and newest tests for properly diagnosing and treatments.

Hope this helps - as Dave says there is help out there just need to get to the right direction for it. Keep us posted what you find out~~

hi and yes I do see what you are up against.

My oldest daughter has MS, Bipolar, Boarder line personality disorder, mild schizophrenia and has epileptic seizures. So I fully understand what you are going thru.

what part of MO are you living in? If you can, google PHYSIATRIST in your area and see what it shows up or do PAIN MANAGEMENT SPECIALISTS as it should show this too. many of them have websites so you can research those.

Physiatrist Pain Specialists will have a set of specialized spine physicians that they can refer you to. but with MOHealth Ins you need referrals from your primary doc in order to see specialists and I hear sometimes this can be a drawn out process - be sure to contact your case worker too -

I hope that you can get to a doctor soon - please let us know how you are doing and what you find out - take care~~
