Hi Floating

I have a theory. It seems as if each doc including the specialists are eager to send you to another specialist to do something you would think they could do. They often have a name of someone to send you to. Do they get kickbacks or is there an unwritten rule that if I recommend you that you will recommend me. The system seems unnecessarily complicated.

As far as opiates go look for the right doctor. They are out there. A lot of docs are squemish about them. The tide is turning but slowly. Did you know that until the 1950's that opiates were what docs presrcibed for depression. That's when the tcas and maois were found.
Now they are being rediscovered for pain and for other novel uses. No they are not perfect but if other pain meds do not work than use something that does. They also may be helpful augments for depression. It is up to your doc to monitor your usage.
So look for a doctor that will use opiates for pain and is willing to use them for chronic pain.You may have to see him/her once a month to discuss your treatment.

Good Luck
