Sorry I havent written anything to you yet on here, but I so feel sorry for you, if I could I would help you, but I wouldn't know how( but if you can think of a way, let me know). I always keep a small stash (actually in my case I have a huge stash) of my meds in case of emergencies like yours that are hidden very well so in case my regualuar meds disappear I would have enough to last me atleast a month. I dont know if this a bad thing to do, but it's kinda my 'security blanket' as withdrawals scare the heck out of me, I dont think anyone likes it, but if I can advoid i, I will. I would be careful of the ER, as one time when I was very ill (vomiting every 10 mintues for 6 hours straight) I decided to go to the ER to get something for nausea. Well I waited 4 hours before I saw the doctor, and she gave me 2 things for nausea through IV that didnt work, and I was still complaining, and the doctor came in and yelled at me that she WASNT giving me any methadone as she doesnt prescribe that stuff, I was so ill from vomiting, but I'm confused on why she said that as I wasnt out of methadone, or was asking for pain meds, and was sent home still vomiting. And if you hapen to get a nice doctor, the most they may give you is like 10 5mg hydrocodones, maybe, JUST maybe, 5mg percocets, which comparred to methadone is nothing, you'll still be in withdrawals, and not to forget a referal to a rehab, even if you tell them your a chronic pain patient and brought with you the proof. And of course they'll wanna call your pain doctor who may or may not help you, but since you said they wouldnt help you now, I doubt they will if the ER calls them. But if your in pain they may give you toradol for pain (NSAID) and somethng for nausea and fluids, but even then you'll still feel terrible. Well have metioned before that opioid withdrawals wont kill you, but sometimes having underlying conditions can get aggrevated and that can kill you, so if maybe going to a rehab center will help, but if you have medcaid like me they'll just throw you into a jail cell like room and watch you suffer (I have no expereince of this but I have heard), but if you have private insurance you may get a real nice place that will take care of you. But if your like me, I have a real fear of being locked up in a room, so that would just make me severly depressed and I will go crazy, I'm sure of it. Have you tried maybe finding a doctor that does Suboxone, maybe you can get on that short term till your appointment so you wont have withdrawals, I dont know what else to say that anybody else hasnt said. but stay safe.
