I'm looking for a pain doc who will prescribe my percocets and do injections ( epidural). I have back, hip, nerve pain down my left leg, meniscus tear in left knee (had surgery), ankle and foot surgery; not to mention left and right shoulder rotator cuff tears (had left shoulder surgery) , and need right shoulder surgery soon. I had an autoimmune blood test done which showed I have joint issues. I am in pain 24/7, also with migraines and neck c5-7 herniated bulging disk. I use to get Percocet 30s @ 5 to 6 a day, now I can't find a doctor to take care of me anymore, especially with my meds. I have no quality of life anymore. I can't work, nor finish the 7 classes I have left to get my bachelor degree due to debilitating pain. The pain drives me totally nuts. Can a doctor help me out there so I can somewhat have my life back?

Brief Answer: Percocet is not the solution Detailed Answer: Good day Mr XXXX! Hello Mr XXXX! I am Dr S Khan and i am sorry for your troubles you had been through. No wonder you need a lot of pain management and a good doctor near by. Mr XXXXXXX due to your country issues i am afraid i cant provide you with the prescription of percocet but i can guide you what to do what not to. As you need a chronic pain management specialist so do a rheumatologist. Percocet has oxycodones in it. And this can be prescribed only in states so i think i will not be able to as i am thousands miles away from states.But what i can do is to listen to you every word you say and try to find a solution by guiding you and making the ways for you. I can also provide you the doctors list near by you and i can give you tips regarding management of these pains. Mr XXXXXXX ou need a management plan and that is to be devised by a team of doctors comprising rheumatologist, chronic pain management specialist and dietitians as diet and lifestyle modifications can change the fate a lot, and last but not the least a physiotherapist. Kindly provide the area you live in and i will provide you with the list of doctors who coul dhelp you with the pain, Remember the goal should be pain free life not percocet. Oxycodone is not the solutuion for the troubles you have. It will just create more. Kindly clos the discussion please and rate the answer as per your experiece. Let me know if you have any more to ask. regards Dr S Khan

Hi Dr. I know that oxycodone is not the only solution and I know that I need many doctors Sorry I wasn't done with my message above . as you read in my first question and explanations I've tried many doctors and I've been turned away by many. No one wants to help chronic pain patients here in Ohio, every time you call one or go to one and you let them know that your chronic pain patient they tell you they don't treat chronic pain so I'm out of luck. But I'm going to keep finding I mean keep looking and trying to find one. if you have any other him suggestions, please feel free to let me know. I will surely use what you've told me. Thank you Dr.
