Sorry you had to be sent to the ER, I hope getting the spinal tap wont give you a warse headache, I know it did for me. If you get worse headaches/migraines now, ask for a blood patch to fix the spinal tap. And you would have to look at your PM contract about
getting pain meds at ERs, some doctors dont care and some do. I know I had to sign a contract that stated something about
getting meds at the ER, and once I mentioned that I may have to go cause I was very sick and had a severe migraine that wouldnt go away, and my PM doctor at the time freaked out and said if I received any narcotic pain meds that I would be breaking my contract, which I thought was a bunch of BS, I'm just happy I am not his patient anymore.
Right now I'm having severe stomach pain, might be my pancreas, it feels like it's in my chest and its getting harder and harder to breathe, but I refuse to go the ER. I would rather die at home in peace then die there, thats for sure. BUT I'm sure this pain of mine will soon past, it always seems to. But as long as your feeling better, then that's good. I know getting meds by IV are alot better then taking them oral, they seem to work alot better. I know people either love morphine or hate it, it's an odd med.
