I wanted to let you guys know that knew about my sick degu, she's much better now. She's eating and drinking now and at this very moment she's playing on her wheel, which I'm so thankful for. but the reason why I'm typing is becasue I'm in so much pain right now, my legs are cramped up from the pain in the lower back, and I cant find a doctor to help. Since I'm on Suboxone and I tell doctors that I have a tolerence and I'm dependent on opiods they treat me like I'm some addict. They wont help me at all. I have state insurance that's restricted cause I went to the hospital too many times 3 years ago, but because I cut my finger, and had a bad reaction to the tettanus shot then my finger kept getting infected, then I had a severe sinus infection, so I'm forced to go to one doctor's clinic, and it's a low income clinic and they treat me terrible. Everytime I make a appointment for my pain they end up calling me on the day of my appointment saying the doctor wont see me for any pain issues, one time they called me 20 minutes before my appointment. And when I ask them what I should do about the pain then, they tell me if it's that bad then go to the ER, and we all know that the ER has issues with people that come in there for chronic issues. The Suboxone helps, but not for severe breakthrough pain. I'm taking Cymbalta for the pain, but that only helps so much. I really want to try Lyrica but these doctor's freak out when I ask, they treat me like I'm asking for something illegal. I cant do Tylenol because it makes me vomit like crazy, NSAIDs give me very severe heartburn that lasts for a week even after one dose. I dont know what else to take for pain. I have Zanaflex but that makes me feel so weird, makes me heart slowdown too much, and when I cut it in half it's not as bad but doesnt help the pain at all. The other muscle relaxers dont help at all either, I wanted to try Soma but that too they freak out when I ask about it. I dont how to convince these doctor's to help me. Am I asking wrong??? Should I ask for a referal to a specialist in back pain?? I refuse to go back to a pain specilaist, they are the ones why i'm in more pain now, if they would of treated my pain instead of covering it up with meds I wouldn't be in more pain now, they wouldn't even do a MRI. SO does anyone know what kind of doctor does back problems?? Thank you for listening.
ps, does anyone have any Idea how much a low dose Lyrica costs out of pocket?? I know it's very expensive but I want to know a rough estimate incase I do convince a doctor to prescribe it.
