It may be growing pains. For a child they can get painful. Cardiac problems have been rules out. You may want to take your child to a Pediatrician, although it has been my experience that Family Practice Drs are just as knowledgeable. We had 6 children and one of them had the same complaints. We were told it was growing pains and the Family Practice Dr was right. Several of the other children also had growing pains, but not in the same places. The more upset you get over this may have a direct impact on the amount of pain your child feels.View Thread
A stronger pain med should help control the pain better so you can exercise more and lose the weight. If you're not seeing a Pain Managment Dr you need to start seeing one. I have put a link below that should help you find a Pain Dr in your area who accepts Medicare.
You may have to stay with your dr you pay cash to even if you are approved for SSI. The reason is because the states have to send Washington D.C. politicians the info on how they discipline high prescribers of pain meds and certain other meds to Medicaid Receipents. So many Medicaid Providers are greatly reducing the pain meds they rx Medicaid Receipents.
Forget the apology. Just be Thankful that you were able to get it all straightened out.
Thank You For Your Service & Thank Your Family For Theirs.
The link below should help you find a Pain Dr who takes Medicare. There is really no way to find out what drs rx Methadone. You will need to make an appointment and take a copy of your medical records from VA. Drs in the private sector are familiar with the problem you're having. But, it is still up to each individual dr to decide what he wants to rx his patients.
Going to the ER may not be a good idea if you have signed a pain contract. Your dr may or may not want to write an extra rx if you call Monday. It would be bestr to wait it out. When we accept the responsibility of taking these meds, we also accept that we may nave some bad days or longer if we are without the meds, even if it isn't our fault. Pressing the pain dr may or may not cost you having pain managment in the future.View Thread
