I was seeing Dr. Creighton for over 20 years. When I first started seeing Dr.C I was in such Chronic Pain dealing with Fibromyalgia that the only future I could see was me having none. The pain hurt so bad that all I wanted to do is die. Dr. C prescribed Oxycontin's and it was the first time in 5 years that I had gotten to feel no pain @ all.Then after 2 days it came back and has been with me now for more than 26 years but the Oxy makes the pain manageable now. Thank's Dr. C
