Please don't take this the wrong way, but you can't take your mom's meds. She needs them. Also, if you go in to see PM and have meds in your system that are not written for you, then they are going to see you as a drug seeker. This is NOT a good way to start the relationship in the office. They can, and likely will, do a UA on the first visit. They also can't see your true pain unless you allow them to and this means taking nothing to mask the pain signals. You need to be very clear whe you go in. RFA does wonders for me. It doesn't work for everyone, but it (along with the proper meds) gives me a quality of life that I just don't have without them. Don't get me wrong, RFA hurts to me when I have it done, but about three weeks later, it's a God send!
