I was attending pain management and was dismissed because they couldn't get in touch with me by phone to do a pill count.I didn't even know that they had called because they didn't leave a message!When i went in the last time,they told me that i can never go back now,whenever i go to a doctor,i can't get help with my chronic back pain!!Sometimes i get to where it is hard to walk,lie down,or sit down because it's very uncomfortable!I even wake up several times a night trying to get comfortable! I feel as if i've been treated very unfairly,if i didn't receive a message,how was i to know?I'm not out here looking for trouble by any means,i just want help and am being denied that by everywhere i go! I'm disabled and live on a low monthly fixed income so, i called medicare and explained my situation,they told me to get a regular family doctor to help me with my pain but i keep running into the same problem!!!!

Hi and welcome to the support group -

first - you need to request all your medical records from the pain clinic.

Second - you really need to be examined by either a Orthopedic or Neurosurgeon Spine Specialist. You will be examined, have tests run and get a proper diagnosis of what is wrong with your spine.

Be straight forward with the spine doctor and see if they can refer you to a PHYSIATRIST Pain Specialist

have the doctors review your medical records from the pain clinic. this way they will know you are being straight forward with them.

Hope this helps - please keep us posted~~
