... Hi guys, I had a pain management doctor but he started wanting to go down on my pain meds and that to me didn't make any sense, when I was in more pain. There might be a more aggressive one in the area, actually I am sure there is living close (one hour) from Boston, Ma there has to be something. My doctor is just a family doctor. He tries hard, but does go by the... (5 replies)

The point is to look for nerve impingements. Honestly there are much better ways to find and DX a nerve impingement, IMO they are inconclusive and... (3 replies)
