    Hi. I live in Joplin MO and I need the name of a doctor who is willing to prescribe narcotics for fibro pain. I have tried Cymbalta, Lyrica and Requip. They either didn't work or had serious side effects. I live in daily pain, from the moment I wake up until I can finally fall asleep. I can also drive to Springfield, MO or Pittsburg KS. There are pain doctors in Tulsa, but they are 2 hours away and I was hoping to find someone closer. Any help will be greatly appreciated (you'll be my best friend for life!).

    I moved back home to MO 8 months ago from WA state. Immediately the docs here pulled all my pain meds and I do mean all.

    I was allowed 10/325 Percocette a day. Now if I don't comply to going to a pain clinic they won't give me any. I cannot afford the pain clinic.

    I have had this illness 23 plus yrs. and suffer horribly.
