Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Yeah, this is quite common. The problem really is unlike most everything else, the people giving narcotics and those dealing with their bad results are different. If burning the nerve endings went badly, if it is done by a neurosurgeon they would be the best choice to try to fix things. BUT giving narcotics by "pain mgt" they don't deal with narcotic complications. For this reason, many people are going to drug treatment centers for pain control.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
