Arachnoiditis

My husband was diagnosted with Arachnoiditis 5 yrs ago.  He suffered a traumatic back injury in college football and at the age of 35 had suffered through 3 back surgeries - the final being a fusion of the L4-L5.  

Due to my career we have moved from Seattle to Northwest Arkansas and now are in Chicago.  Each time he has had to go through a horrible process trying to find physicians who 1) understand the disease and 2) will prescribe the numerious pain meds he needs to function.

Can anyone advise a physician in the Chicagoland area (W. Suburbs if possible) who has experience working with Arachnoiditis and medicine pain management?
