Thank you all so much for the support. I knew I could count on you guys and girls to be here for me.
I get my pain meds from my pcp, and the time I went in with my back the last time, she said that if she increased my meds, I would regret it later. I don't know what that means, but I was so aggravated.
I went to a clinic called NY Rehab and the doctor there told me that she would get me stable and then she would ask my pcp to take over prescribing my meds. She did get me stable, but now I'm not so stable, and I don't know whether to try to see her again, or find another pain management doctor. When I agreed to see her, I felt like it was my last chance of seeing a pain management dr.
I had saw a good one back about 4-5 years ago, but I messed up with him because I kept missing appointments, and he dismissed me. I called back there one day about 3 months ago, and they are not taking my insurance now (medicaid). I printed off a list of pain management drs last night, and I plan to call them, and see if they will take my insurance.
Well, I'll go now. You all take care, and I hope you all have a low pain evening.
love and hugs
