Hello, 211563-ga!

 I am so sorry you are so miserable. I have never experienced chronic
pain like you are describing, but my mother has, for most of her life,
so I truly have a sense of what you are going through. Don't despair.
I believe you will find some relief!

 I have enclosed a lengthy list of clinics and doctors that I have
found online, and I have no doubt you will find someone within these
referrals who can help you. However, if not, I will gladly look
further for you. I didn't want to overwhelm you with information, so I
figured this was a good start.

 Some of the clinics may not offer the type of chronic pain management
you are seeking, but it sounds as though there are many that will
offer pain medication and other therapies that will do the trick.

 The Unifour Pain Treatment Center is a freestanding facility staffed
by a group of dedicated anesthesiologists, who sub-specialize in acute
and chronic pain management. We are committed to quality, personalized
treatment plans for our patients with diseases and injuries which
cause them pain. We work in close contact with primary care
physicians, specialists, physical therapists and counselors to ensure
a team approach to pain management. We consider no painful condition
"too minor" and are willing to assist any patient whose physician
feels may benefit from our services
 The physicians at Unifour Pain Treatment Center are skilled at
diagnostic and therapeutic injections and nerve blocks. In addition,
we offer pharmacologic regimens including chronic opioid management
when appropriate. Because of the adverse emotional impact chronic pain
can have, we work closely with psychological services to treat this
important aspect of our patients' well-being.
