I know how you feel! Doctors think they know how you feel but dont! I had to resign from my job of 20 plus years because of two failed back surgery's! Just don't stop looking and hoping to find the answer to your pain! I have been looking for 6 yrs for the right doctor. I had a very good doctor for my pain in NJ! But I couldn't live on my ss disability in NJ. I'm down south in GA now looking for a good pain doctor. Doctors don't know what we feel like from pain! I loose so much sleep because of pain! The best pain med I was on is opana. I felt a lot better and could function on it. But since I moved my insurance wasn't good here! Obama lied my insurance was not good every where like he said the Obama care would be! Opana costs $450 with my new insurance I can't afford it. If you can try opana it works and I didn't loose any sleep!! Just don't give up!! Things will get better! I'm hoping the new pain management center I started this week is the answer! But they want to start like I never had any treatment for pain before! I wish you luck and hang in don't GIVE UP HOPE!!!
