What are the pain management alternatives for fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis?

default
Posted on Mon, 27 Jan 2014
Question: I am trying to find a pain management doctor for my daughter. The standard procedure in this area seems to be" 1. Give the patient enough pain medication to treat the pain. 2. Cut the pain medication in half My daughter has fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and chronic pain. The pain doctors we've seen offer no complementary pain management alternatives, just cut her meds in half, which has led to withdrawal and seizures. How do we find a doctor who won't do that? She is an RN, so she understands her problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated. She is currently a non-functioning lump on the bed.
