    I went to a pain specialist and he sent me to warm water therapy 3x week for 3 months. This didn't work well, made me feel worse.

    When I went back, they wanted to put me on narcotics. I have Tramodol as my main pain med and I'm not ready to go to narcotics. Needless to say, I won't be back to them.

    Good luck

    So sorry it didnt work for you! Iam on neurotin 600mgs three times a day. I cant get Savella or Lyrica with medicaid. My mdoc said she cant up my neurotin without me seeing a pain specialist ...so guess i will be seeing one soon. Maybe she thinks that the specialist can be of more help in getting these meds or something.
