Dr. David :

I am sorry you are in constant pain.

Dr. David :

your GP needs to refer you to a neurologist or pain management doctor to get an MRI scan of your neck and spine to check for spinal stenosis or pinched nerves in your neck and spine which most likely is causing your constant pain down the right side and the burning pain in your neck and jaw.

Dr. David :

just giving you morphine is covering up the pain but is not addressing the cause of the pain.

Dr. David :

have you had an MRI scan of your neck spine before?
