Re: how to deal with pain?
Sorry to hear you are in pain. I am not sure what a "Pain Clinic" is, or at least I am not sure what YOU are talking about.
I went to a PM&R doctor, but I am still in pain. Some days (today) worse than others. What I have come to believe is that I will always be in pain, some days worse than others.
If you are in Montana, you might try looking in Google for a PM&R doctor. Like anything else, some PM&R doctors are better than others.
Best wishes for you...
