I just received a whole lotta emails from someone from this site, claiming to be "Lori", a fifty five year old who blasted me for things I discussed a few years back.
Lori was going on and on, about the "hundreds or thousands" of suicides due to people not being able to get their prescribed meds because of
, as Lori elucidates us, "all the new schedule 2 laws", and hydrocodone being changed from a schedule 3 to a 2
She also thinks that pharmacists should be sued via "class action" because they should be legally mandated (I added that word; Lori didn't have much of a vocabulary)
She asked me questions about my personal life, and attacked me because I'm not poor.
She didn't seem to know what SCI, SCS, Brown Sequard Syndrome means. As she claims to be a PT with 35- yr experience, she would understand all these things.
I asked for info about the thousands of suicides, and she sent me a link to a tabloid article whereby an FDA agent explained that the controlled drug act was enacted in the 1970s, and there are no new regs.
Apparently, physical therapists get their professional journal info Via tabloids, and this Lori, PT hadn't even bothered to read the article, haha
Again, folks, hydro has been rescheduled to a sch 2, just like all the other meds of its ilk.
If thousands have committed suicide because of that, well, I'd suspect that they may have other co-existing pathologies.
I have had my email address, and sometime even my cell phone number freely posted in my "story". I've taken calls and have received many emails from new members mostly wanting to discuss spinal cord stimulator topics with me.
Because the radical idiots who want to take away MDs constitutional rights by mandating them to require to treat anyone (MDs can refuse to treat anyone, for any reason) , bitch and moan about petitions about "new laws" that don't exist, I am removi g myself from this group.
Have fun with Lori, who is not 56, but 28 yr old, is not a PT, and is going to get arrested for harassment if she continues to fill my inbox with idiocy.
I have warned her over and over to cease contact.
Some of you are my Facebook friends.
See you there, and have fun with the idiots who don't even know that their petitions against non- existent "new laws" on,y confirm their ignorance.
What kind of PT doesn't know what PubMed is, and gets her medical- legal references from a tabloid.
So, if you're honest, the MD may refuse to treat you as you are a liability to the MD,
But, if you're not honest about your history, this will make your situation less likely to be taken seriously, as wrist pain is often transient and resolves itself.
Have you been treated for this pain at all during these years?
Do you have a diagnosis?
Whether you opt to be honest with your MD, or try to lie your way out of it, I think we can agree that this sort of dishonesty, combined with illegal drug diversion, oft times comes back to cause more problems than we would have encountered had we been honest from the start.
I would urge you to be honest with your health care providers, but only you can decide how you want to proceed.
Do understand that health care works best when patients are honest with health. Are professionals, and visa- versa.
Idk about discussing this with a pharmacist, since it's not your Rx, and your pharmacist would be correct I'm referring you to the prescribing MD, and you have not one.
For the most part, withdrawal is miserable, big seldom fatal or terribly dangerous. I am aware of someone here who experienced seizure whilst withdrawal from Tramadol (Ultram and Tramadol is the same thing), but that isn't a common or expected sequeale.
I would urge you to be totally honest and transparent with all of your health care providers.
The situation in which you've found yourself can serve as a lesson to the rest of us
Please don't think I'm attacking you personally; I'm just telling it the way that it is.
First, every American is now able to get affordable insurance, no matter what your work hours and / or financial condition.
Go to your state info page to apply for insurance via the affordable care act. It's the law.
Second, you've kind of gotten yourself in a Catch-22 situation.
You and your relative have blatantly broken the law by him/ her diverting his/ her Rx to you.
Whether you'll experience withdrawal symptoms is dependent upon a few factors.
It's up to the MD whether he or she treats your pain whilst diagnostics are pending. Still, if you tell the MD that you've had this pain for four years, it will seem as if it's not something for which you require powerful analgesia.View Thread
