Boy do I understand the feeling of being scared of your PM doctor!! I had one several years ago that was a complete jerk. He never listened to me, told me to go the ER if I was in that much pain, and would sometimes decide I dont need anymore pain meds and give me a very small amout of my pain meds and tell me to taper off and then a few months later represcribe my pain meds back to me just for the heck of it. It never made sence to me, it was like the more I complained about
my pain, the more he would take me off of the meds, but the less I complained he would give me more. And he use to love to call me fat, I am 5'6 and weigh 150lbs, I may not be a supermodel, but I am far form being fat, he even asked me if I was pregnant once, and I have no belly!!!!
I could only take so much of this doctor, every time I went to an appoitnment I would make myself sick with the anxiety and have panic attacks. But it was hard cause he's the only the PM doctor around that took medicaid so I was forced to put up with im, but then one day I had enough and decided to never go back and that was the best choice I ever made.
You would think that most PM doctors should know when your in more pain, but some of them out there just dont care and I think they think it's funny to watch us suffer and that way we dont bother them as much. But it's jsut so hard with PM doctors dissapearing like crazy cause of them being scared of DEA and the ones who are around are almost impossible to get into.
