I was reading some old posts hoping that someone would recommend a good pain specialist in Spokane or Sandpoint Id. They must not be afraid to prescribe pain meds. I have had the same doctor in Seattle for 20 years and he just retired and now seeing a Dr in the same clinic. He will carry on with the medications I've been on all that time (oxy an breakthrough pain med). It is a long drive to Seattle and I am looking for a good Dr closer. Has anyone gone to Dr Lynda Williamson? She is a DO and Pain specialist. The government has scared most Dr's and the extra time they have to put in on each pain patient is horrible. I don't blame them for not wanting to deal with us but what are we to do? Please help me...I wouldn't be surprised if no one can help....it is horrible. I am 68 and in pain night and day, the meds help a lot and I can not imagine not being able to get them. Thanks in advance for your help. I have done some research on pain meds (Oxycontin) if I understand correctly the narcotics like oxy. does not harm your liver, bladder, kidneys. The other medications Dr's want us to take for FM do harm organs. Anyone else studied this at all?
