im in a bad position. I am as of right now receiving my rx's from my pain dr. which is morphine sulfate & loratab. My primary Dr. just informed me they are closing their office so i have to find another primary and my pain Dr. informed me i need to get my rx's switch to my primary. I cannot find another primary that will accept me because i have chronic pain along with many other drs. i have called. I dont know what to do!! How do i get my rx's if i cant find a primary?? Im in a really bad spot and dont know what to do!! Iv'e had 3 back surgeries and 1 neck surgery. I have a titanium bracket in my back and 1 in my neck. I have been thru pain shots 4 times and physical therapy 4 times and nothing works. I will be like this the rest of my life and I have accepted this and fine with it. Its not fair that irresponsible people who take pain meds make it hard for us who really, truly need them!! Im sick of it and dont want to be punished because of stupid people!! Why dont drs. accept pain patients anymore?? I dont understand what we r suppose to do?? I need help?? please????View Thread
