I'm so sorry for the pain you are in. Unfortunately I can relate. I have been in that much pain a lot lately and narcotics have been my only saving grace.
I found a doctor (GP) who supports prescribing narcotics for chronic pain and he referred me to a neurologist who also supports and prescribes narcotics. Between the two of them I am on a regimen of long acting narcotics and use a combination of T3s / Toradol / Ativan for break through migraines.
Before I was prescribed narcotics I tried many different types of medications including Topamax, Neurontin, along with other new advances in migraine medications. They would work for a week or two and then my body would adjust and the headaches would come back.
This way I don't have to visit an ER and I only visit my family doctor or neurologist. Someone who has labelled you a drug seeker obviously doesn't understand physical dependence and drug addiction. People in pain don't seek drugs for a high, they seek to end their pain and want to end their pain. It's so frustrating that some doctors are to scared to prescribe the medications necessary to end the chronic pain that some headache sufferers are in.
I hope you are able to find a solution soon. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
You are not a drug seeker and in no way should be labled as one. I honestly don't understand why doctors refuse to #1) believe their patients pain is real, even if they can't understand it, and #2) they are supposed to have this big degree and know how to help. Was all that money spent on med school a waste? And I swear one of the courses some of them took was sarcasm 101. "Well, you know Michelle, headaches aren't a disability, you just need to try and overcome them." I had one, who I no longer see, tell me that exact thing! OOOHHHH I was livid. My ex-husband would tell me the same thing, I called him Dr. Chris and asked him where he got his medical degree from. "Well Michelle, we can't afford for you to be going to all these doctors when there is nothing wrong. It's all in your hea, mind over matter!" I can't have kids and he once told me to "get over it". I'm so glad I left him. He was a part of my stress. Yucky old bald man. (no offense to those that may be bald, just him)
Sorry I got off the subject there, just a small rant.
