I just found this group/website and really hoping that someone can help me. I was diagnosed with Fibromyaligia/CFS/Extreme Anxiety, Depression (and panic attacks).
I was originally diagnosed thru a Rheumy about 9 years ago ,but didn't really care for her 'bed side manner' so for the past 6 years have been treated by my PCP. A long story short, my PCP left the area practice (with no forwarding information to be able to contact her).
As most are probably familiar, I am on some heavy duty medications. Here is a list of what I am currently on: Gabapentin 300mg 3x day, Amitriptylin 75mg a bedtime, Hydroxyzine 25mg 2x day, Alprazalam (xanax) .5mg 3x day, Hydrocodone 10/325 3x day, Ibuprofen 800mg 3x day and Trazadone 100mg a bedtime.......I am hoping to find another Dr that would be willing to keep me on the regimen that I am currently on.
To make matters worse--I do NOT have medical insurance so I am a self pay patient. Most that I have called do not want to take on a new patient that is chronic pain/illness and who does not have insurance.
If anyone has any suggestions on where I can go for help please let me know. I appreciate your help and your feedback.
