I like Jim1969 and in the US, I am not sure how far away you may be from New York or even if you would receive treatment.
I totally agree with Jim, I hope you have a GP, again I am not sure how it works in Canada with referrals or anything else, I am going to suggest something at least temporarily, maybe you could go to a methadone clinic. Again I dont know the process in Canada, but that would at least help until you find another PM doctor you can get an appointment with. Its bad enough dealing with the constand pain, withdrawal from the medications makes the process so much worse.
Check the city where you live, most have treatment programs. As I said I am sorry I cant be of more help, this is a large forum, hopefully someone will be able to help you. In the US we have something called the AMA (American Medical Association), do you have anything similar, the AMA is set up to address concerns of the Doctors and the people who count on them for help.
I am out of ideas, I hope you find help soon. Good luck. Will be praying for you.
