Anyone know anything about Crossville Pain Clinic? It's right off of exit 317, turn right off the exit and it's 0.3 miles on left.
I went there once And the FNP gave me Opana........a form of morphine. Have return visit scheduled but not sure if I want to go back here or not
Was told Opana was the only pain medicine they prescribed. My family doctor had me on oxycodone before referring me to a pain clinic. I am afraid I picked the WRONG clinic. This Morphine is making me sick, bad side effects. I thought They only gave morphine to DYING people. I only have 3 ruptured discs.
Any advice welcome

Surgery. Pain medicine will do absolutely nothing for your problem. It might make the pain go away for a little while, but your back won't get any better, and will probably get even worse.

"Only give to dying people?" You can't be serious? First, morphine has been around for "at least" 200 years. It is still one of the most used narcotics for chronic pain. Oxycodone (Oxycontin) was initially only indicated for cancer patients who had less than 6 months to live. But we all know that changed quickly. Problem with Oxy is that it is very easy to abuse and holds a high street value. Yes, morphine is still used for "people who are dying" because it works at making the individual comfortable. Like any narcotic, if you give too much it will cause respiratory depression and you'll stop breathing, and most likely die. Morphine is still considered the first-line treatment for chronic pain. BTW, this office does not prescribe only Opana. They prescribe what is best for the patient based on strict criteria.

Stay away from any pain clinic that prescribes narcotics. There are plenty of other medications and treatments available that help with pain (and with the underlying conditions.) Narcotics only ease the pain temporarily and do absolutely nothing to treat the cause.

I have been taking Opana for about 6 months now for my chronic pain and it works really well for me. As for people seeking oxycotin the reason for that is to abuse them for your info they have changed them so they ain't easy to cut up or to shoot up they turn to gel. That is a really good thing maybe people will stop abusing them and take them like they are suppose to. I can't believe the people around here just seeking doctor's just to find one that will give you what you want. They just give you what you think you need then when you don't get what you want you think the dr is a quack. I just can't believe all the pill heads here in crossville the need to get a life. There is a suboxone clinic in Telahoma that alot of people need to go visit to get clean and people say they can't afford it that is a bunch of bull because they can always come up with the money for another fix.

I was told by FNP DENNIS MCCREARY that I would not be able to find a Dr. To prescribe me roxicidone and was prescribed opaba & percocet @ the Crossville pain clinic. I was only a patient there 6 weeks before I switched to a clinic in west Knoxville that started me off on oxycontin 60mg & roxicodone for breakthrough pain. I was very unhappy w/ Crossville & would not recommend it to anyone. The same FNP gave me 6 shots in my back...on the same visit & did not even let me lay down. He told me to lean over. I could feel the pain of each injection. When it was over I asked what the injection was, he said lidocaine. I never felt any relief from those injections & I decided on that visit that I was never going back there. I researched it & lidocaine injections are experimental with a higher failure rate than effectiveness. My skin did not even get numb from them.

Morphine is the pain medication that is in Percocet or oxydodone which is the generic name for it.

Get your facts straight Reba fan. Oxycodone and Morphine are totally different drugs. Oxycodone is in Percocet, NOT Morphine. If you don't know what you are talking about don't post on topix, you make yourself sound like an idiot.

They are very strict and require criminal background checks from Knox county and the county you live in. I like that, makes it hard for people with bad intentions to become patients there.

Sorry forgot I had changed my name. I put the number on the last post. Keisha is the lady @ ext. 222 you have to talk to to start the new patient process. You pay $350 then, give your information, & are given an appointment date approximately 2-3 weeks from then. I was give meds on my first appointment as I posted earlier. You have "homework" for your second appointment. You have to get a copy of your police record or papers signed stating you have no police record from Knox county & the county you live in to turn in on this second appointment. You also have to fill out papers about your pain history....describing your pain, etc...appointments are every 28 days or monthly. Hope this helps. If u have any more questions ask.
