My primary wanted me assessed for being a danger to myself. I am home now. The professional that did my assessment conferred with the Dr in the ER, and I am comfortable for the night. Tomorrow part of my go home safely plan is to sit in my PM's office until someone talks to me because this amount of time off meds is a bit over board. That was the consensuses there. Soooo a little rest tonight, maybe some sleep. My prayers are with everyone.

After many phone calls, my PM has decided that he can not help my level of pain. He had decided this when he took me off all meds for 30 days and said he would see me on the 25th. Why, my primary was not told right away and this month avoided, no one really understands. I am left to assume I really made my PM that mad when I called Administration because I had an issue, though he said he understood and things seemed ok, I guess not. Not sure whats going to happen now, I am still dumbfounded by the turn of events. I feel like the only thing you are allowed to say is, Yep I am fine, its all good, no worries. I feel like if I say things are not going well or my pain is worse, I get punished. *throws her hands up in the air* I am thankful that I at least trust my primary physician.
We also have a great snow storm going on, so its a good night to tuck into bed. Still have a couple of days of meds from the ER, so will rest and prepare for my next battle.

Prayers to all and a hope for a restful evening as best as possible.

Gosh you are in quite a bind eh. So sorry things are not any better for you. How are the withdrawls at this point? what meds did you get in the ER? So what will be your next move? have you talked to your pcp to see what she suggests?

Keep posting and let us know how you are doing.

No withdrawals that I can tell, and I have had experience once with serious withdrawal a few years ago when my PM got arrested, a very sad story. He was hiding the fact that he had parkinsons and many people in my area took advantage. The poor man was exonerated and is now in a care home and doing fairly well.
Just the pain now. My primary gave my PM a little heck and I will be seeing him one last time, still another week to go with no relief. I could go on and on about all the things I have learned in the ten+ years I have been dealing with this.
Here are my two favorite common mixups.

1. If the person on the phone asks, what has helped in the past, prepare to have a message sent back to your Dr saying that you are asking for X medication the person on the phone asked you about. Regardless of if you did ask for it or not at all.
2. You will get pain meds thrown at you left and right during the beginning of your condition, even if you beg and plead to try something else. Until finally you have tried everything and then you have to fight tooth and nail for anything at all.

I have many more but those two are the most common I see people go through and have experienced. So here I am begging to try meds for neuropathy like Lyrica and I am being told no pain meds for me, I DID not ask!!! for them!!!!!. *TWITCHES*
Lyrica and Cimbalta where not even heard of when I started down this road.
Sighs.....
I used to write, I loved to write, I miss it so much. Maybe I need to go back to it now that my head is only fuzzy with pain.
