It has been awhile since I seen you post, I am glad to see you back! It is to bad that you were treated that way at your Doctors. Some Anesthesiologist are into pain management, and have have extra training in that area. So I would not be overly concerned about that. Some Doctors are not that well versed in pain management, and just don't want to deal with it, and so they will send you to someone they feel is more qualified and able to treat you. You mentioned you have Restless Leg Syndrome, (RLS) what have they given you for that? You mentioned you were taking Hydrocodone that is for pain not for RLS. Usually RLS is treated with Requip or Mirapex which is quite effective for most people. You might want to check out www dot rls dot org as they have allot of information concerning restless legs. Of course there is also the Fibro forum here at HealingWell that you can go to.
cbear I don't know if you can call us a "life line" but we are here for you! To listen and support you! I do wish you were not in so much pain, have you tried calling your Doctor and try to just talk to your Doctor not the nurses or PA's or what ever, but your actual Doctor? You might want to give that a try, and explain your situation maybe just maybe your Doctor could do something till your other appointment!
I wish you well!
