Honestly I would look for another pain management dr !!!! Mine put me on gapepentin, MS Contin extended release and MS Contin immediate release and when I tell him it's not working he ups the extended release it helps a little but at least he tries to do something

I only go to my GP but am wanting to look into a pain management specialist. I don't know how to get a referral without offending my GP though.
