I just found a guidebook by Dr. Forest Tennant that talks about "Intractable Pain (IP)". Instead of chronic pain, he deals with patients that have unbearable pain every day. He treats it differently than chronic pain. Basically, he believes that opioids are necessary for people with IP. He also has some good advice for dealing with it. Does anyone know where one can find doctors that are IP doctors? I live in central Pennsylvania and there are none around us. I have been dealing with severe, unbearable neurapathy pain for a year, and none of the usual pain meds help (gabapentin, Elavil, Ultram, etc.). The website is at http://www.foresttennant.com. There is a guide in the "self help" tab. I attached the guide.
