Pain and confusion

Jan 10, 2018 9:47 PM

I have stuff never heard any solutions of anything I can do to help with my pain (900mg gabapentin and 5mg norco as needed). I am terrified of needles. I I am trying to play with the idea of taking my blood they need so. No one has said that they would have to but I truly feel like I have so many mystery. I have never help so helpless. Not only about my neurologist but helpless with myself. I want to know what is wrong with me. I’ve been told to get a Therapy dog. &
I’ve been told to”suck it up and be a big girl if you really care about your self “

I’d also love to be able to get refills of my meds wothout getting the 5th degree. Thank you so much addicts for making these kinds of VALID questions impossible. If I ask one question about adjusting my norco, I’m looked like I’m seeking something.

This has all turned into the bigger picture being about how to catch a drug addict rather than finding a solution to those of us who have pain.

Wish my luck on my endeavors. I will never NOT be confused

All they are concerned of is making sure we were getting everything we want except understanding p

I ran out of my norco 2 weeks ago. My doc can’t get me in with my schedule (totally understandable. That’s my issue, not his). But that he can’t send a script to my pharmacy or write one so I can pick it up from the office. Even when I ask if those are an option, I get attitude like I am a seeker! Ugh!! Again, the seekers and abusers ruin everything.

All this for 5/325 norco #60 1 every 4-6 hours. Last refill was 11/16/17. I can’t say I even seem like a seeker!

I hear you! Some doctors & staff have reverted to their previous judgemental ignorance on use for those who are not "seekers" or "addicts" but are trying to live with significant chronic pain.
