Don't know if you can find a good acupuncturist in Mississippi, but do try to find one - it could really help. Best wishesDOM

  • I am sorry you are in pain. Have you been to a doctor who specializes in pain? Though some doctors can be hard-headed/hard-hearted when it comes to believing a patient is in pain, others are more understanding and willing to give the patient the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps it's just a matter of finding one who understands.Best Wishes.

  • Elke is right. Go to a pain clinic. They are usually run by anesthesiologists and are sympathetic to your problem. (or they'd be out of business).
