Pain Management Doctors and RA

Posted on May 25, 2018

As your rheumatologist searches for the right combination of medication and lifestyle changes to treat your rheumatoid arthritis, they may refer you to a doctor who specializes in pain management. Pain management specialists use medication and other methods to control all types of pain. Finding what works for you may require trial and error.

On myRAteam, the social network and online support group for those living with rheumatoid arthritis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Pain management doctors are one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about pain management doctors:

What is a Pain Management Doctor?

My pain management doctor requested that I have the nerves burned. I’m so tempted if it releases the pain in my back.

Saw my pain management Dr today. Been having knee pain. She ordered an X-ray to confirm my diagnosis and then assured me she could help. I trust her completely and feel so lucky to have such a great doctor.

Got an appointment set up with the pain doctor the back surgeon referred me to. I'm hoping I won't have as much pain!

Going to pain management on Monday since nobody wants to give me pain meds. I haven't been able to do hardly anything and if I do I'm in tears.

Can you relate?
