Have severe chronic pain, headaches, neck and spine pain. How to get relieved?

I need a primary doctor & am having a horrible time finding one! I have severe chronic pain , headaches, neck & spine pain. I live in Hopkins SC. I have run out of my pain med s and cannot find anyone to help me. I don t want to be on any med s but I don t want to be in pain either. I just want to live a somewhat normal life. I am on disability & on Medicare. Is there anyone that is compassionate, understanding, will listen to my symptoms & help me to find the correct pain relief?

Hello,

I have studied your case.

As per your symptoms neck pain can be due to diffuse disc bulge compressing your cervical spine.
Another possibility can be migraine,consult doctor to diagnose it

When such patient comes to my hospital we usually take x ray spine to see for severity of nerve compression.
Some medication like methylcobalamine with muscle relaxant and analgesic will reduce pain, you can take them consulting your treating doctor.

Also check your vit B12 and vit D3 in your blood.
Hope this helps. Wish you speedy recovery.

Take care
