Pain managment clini: If you have chronic back pain for injury or inborn problem and if surgical managment is not optionsl now- best to see Pain managment specialist. Besides using medication thry can involve phys. therapy, electrical stimulators etc. Nobody will judgdge u as a " Drug seeker". Goal is to have quality life with pain managable. Talk to your Doc. about it.
