Hi avanti88, My pain mgt. dr. has a message posted in the waiting room and it says if you are 15 or minutes late, then you will not be seen. Now, in my opinion, that is crazy. Every time I have been to their office which is every month, I wait more than 1 hr. and sometimes 3 hrs. to see my pain mgt. dr. These docs are so busy that they can't even keep up with all of their patients. That is obvious.
I would not change pain drs. because this particular one is the best one that I have ever had. So, when I go to my appointment I just expect that I will be there a long time. Sometimes I am surprised and I don't have to wait a long time, but that is rare.
Sorry, about your situation. I understand. If you have changed pain mgt. drs. then that is good. I hope all goes well for you.
Wow, you have had a lot of procedures done and now you do not have a dr. that will prescribe you the pain meds to take by mouth. I do not know what to tell you except have you tried seeing a pain mgt. dr. that would help you?
With your degree in aerospace and more it sounds as though you are a very intelligent person. I hope that you can find a pain mgt. dr. to help you with your pain.
I have had 6 major jaw replacement surgeries with prosthesis in my face on both sides. I also have migraines and neck pain and more things that cause me pain.
I have a wonderful pain mgt. dr. and I would not trade her for another pain mgt. dr. ever. She is so kind and caring and most of all she is extremely intelligent and certainly knows what pain is all about. She has been my pain mgt. dr. now for about 2 years. Prior to that I had another dr. that was difficult and not very helpful to say the least.
Maybe if you could stop using the marijuana it would be easier to get your pain medications. I just don't have any more ideas than that one.
Wow, you sure have had a lot of tests done. They can't figure out what is causing you so much pain either. That is very strange. Have you seen a orthopedic dr.? I read your long message. I can't remember if you did. The neurologist could not find anything else going on either.
I would suggest that you find a pain mgt. dr. They are far much better in treating pain and especially when it is hard to diagnose. I don't know what state that you live in, but most pain mgt. drs. are the best way to go when you have pain and you don't know why or what is causing it.
Try and find a pain mgt. dr. and see if that helps. I have been going go a pain mgt. dr. now for many many years. Currently, I have a wonderful lady dr. that is terrific. She is from another country, but that does not matter. What matters is that she is very smart and knows pain mgt. and how to treat my problems.
I am so sorry that you are in so much pain. I would never wish that on anyone. It is true hell to be in so much pain.
Please find a pain management dr. and let us know what happens.
I have had huge problems with Walgreens. They had a new pharmacist that did not know me. When my prescription was taken there she would not fill it. I had been going to Walgreens for many, many years and could not believe that. I asked to have my scrip back and went to CVS and they filled it without any problems.
I have heard that Walgreens has been sued for 85 million dollars. If that is true, then they have some real big problems.
Hello tom_1725, I have never had what you have going on. I do think that you should see an orthopedic dr. You probably will need to have surgery from what you have said. I sure do not know for sure, but I think that seeing an orthopedic dr. is your best bet.
Good luck. I am sorry that you are in such severe pain. I have only heard what you have because Barry Manilow had the same problem and did have surgery in order to fix the problem.
I hope that you find a really great dr. that can help you.
Hi aubri222, I have been taking methadone from my pain mgt. dr. for a long time now. I do not understand why your dr. would make such a change in your meds.
Maybe you need to find a new pain mgt. dr. if that is a problem. Methadone works very well for my chronic to severe pain. At first when I started taking it I was a bit freaked out, but it works very well for me and for my pain.
I hope that you find a new pain mgt. dr. that will get you on the proper meds.
