This chronic back pain is really wearing me out. All modes of therapy have really failed so far. I am just holding the line with dope, but it is failing. What are some alternative treatments for chronic pain? I am going from doctor to doctor seeking a cure. I feel like some of these quacks are taking advantage of me with nerve blocks and all this other crap. I take oxycodone and vicodin and I just get some relief. The VA has failed me and so have the private pain doctors.

This iis a temporary fix but go to the VA and ask for a torodol injection. It will last for less than a day but I have done it as an emergency.

It works by reducing the swelling with a massive dose of injected Nsaid.

I also have chronic lower back & joint pain in my hands. I know what you mean about both VA and private sector pain docs! Private care docs here in Arkansas are scared to death of giving out pain meds.

The DEA and the state of Florida has put the fear of God into the pain management doctors. All they want to do now is give those expensive steroid shots.

Yeah the Arkansas pain specialist are scared, and after what happened to Dr. Fisher in Ft. Smith, prison term and lost medical license (He did return to university and earn a degree in law) and a couple of others here in Arkansas that were raided several years ago, I don't blame them for being scared!

The DEA SWAT teamed their offices early AM, just like a meth lab raid, and confiscated all patient records, computers, etc. and left the patients out in the cold without a means of treating their pain, they treated the patients as addicts, so the other doctors were scared of taking them on as patients after the storm went through. Sad state of affairs for sure!

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
