As some may remember, I went off the oxys and went on sub for chronic pain. I want to see this pain doc and have made an appt. Question is... if he cannot help me and he refuses to put me back on opiates, do i have to wait awhile (1 year) before I can see another pain doc or clinic? This seems cruel is if this rumor is true. The person who told me this is on permanant SSI and uses Medicaid. I have the best insurance money can buy. BTW, I wanted to stick a hot poker through my eye at work 2day because the pain was so bad. I was thrashing at work. No joke! A quick response would be appreciated as I am purely in agony!! I am counting the days until I grow old!
