I was wondering what people say to their PCP when they want you to come off Narcotics?
The reason I ask is my PCP suggested I try and stop taking the pain meds. She doesn't Rx them a pain clinic does. I have peripheral neuropathy, C3-C4 central disc herniation which impinges on my spinal cord which for some reason no one thinks is causing a problem. I of course no better but no one is listening. Fortunately, the pain clinic I go to does help but I don't know for how much longer they will.
This whole thing is ridiculous I have tried every medication and opioids are the only things that help. Now I am being told they can make pain worse. Hyperalgesia. Personally I think those studies are complete nonsense.
My PCP even went so far as to ask me which meds I can stop.
At this point I don't know what to do. If I stop the meds I will not be able to function because the pain will come back it always does. Then again I have been on them for years now and maybe what she says is true.
Personally, I think she is Opioidphobic but other than seeing a new PCP what can I do?
