Boy, can I identify with this topic. Whenever I go to the ER, I always get the doctor d'jour, so there is no continuity of care. I usually get a brief exam, then he/she asks what I usually get for the pain. I usually get a shot of Dilaudid and Phenergan, with a small prescription of Vicodan (or similar medication), in case my migraine comes back before I can get to my doctor. The doctor has my hospital records to back up my answer, but then the doctor mumbles something about the nurse bringing me something for pain, with no explanation as to what that might be. One doctor/jerk ignored my request and the information on the medical records showing my previous treatment. He sent the nurse in with a shot of Benedryl and orders to put me on oxygen for an hour. I violently objected to this treatment, since I knew it wouldn't work, but the doctor refused, stating that he did not believe in prescribing narcotics for migraines. I got the shot and got the oxygen, which as anticipated, did nothing for my pain. I had to go to a walk-in clinic to get a shot, which did the trick, but ended up costing me almost $150.00, since I don't have regular insurance. I just hate doctors who think they are God, and refuse to listen to their patients.
Just my experience,
