I am just so frustrated

I am so down and frustrated with how the treatment of my neck is going! I just finished 2 months of physical therapy which didn't work at all because Medicare requires it to fail before they think of surgery! I have 2 herniated discs in my neck and in constant pain! I have a pain doctor who I like except for one thing he is scared to prescribe pain meds! He will give me epidural injections in March but until then he has given me no meds to deal with this pain and it is taking me under and I don't know what to do! My depression has gotten worse and there is no end to it!

I saw an amazing neurosurgeon in Cambridge who might be able to help you. He has pioneered some neck surgery which really made a difference to me. His name is Mr Rikin Trivedi. It’s worth reading up about him.


Surely your doc cannot stop you buying paracetamol or similar over the counter?


Get another doctor
