Hello everyone, Can anyone reccomend a good, understanding pain doctor in springfield illinos who has not been ruined by drug seekers. The drug seekers have hurt the people such as myself in real need of opiate pain meds! I am on a medical leave of absence from work due to degenerative disc disease, severe osteo arthritis in spine and knees. I could go on and on I am 300 pounds and am also fighting with my insurance company Health Alliance HMO to have WLS but have been denied twice due to my hypothyroidism. Any assistance with a doctor would be so appreciated! Thank you!!!
