  • Ask to be referred to a Pain Management specialist. They use non-surgical pain treatments directly at the site of pain. Some treatments work better than others so they will try one a couple of times and if it doesn't work then they will try another. What works for one person doesn't necessarily mean it will work for another. I've had a lot of people tell me that the epidural treatments never worked for them, yet just one treatment has me in a lot less pain than before.
    If you'd like to see what Pain Management is all about, you can look at the website of the practice I visit to see what it is all about: www.treatingpain.com
    Doctors are frowning on frequent pain pill users now because they can become addictive and that is why your doctor may not be willing to give you more.
    I wish you well!
