Ugh doctors

Feb 20, 2016 8:44 AM

Going to try to make this short. I have fibro! It sucks cUses a lot of pain. When I went to my Dr and said "I don't know what's going on my pain is a lot worse and I can't get it under control, I told him I think something else is wrong". I think he thought I was seeking more pain meds. Well I was but, because I was suffering terribly. Finally I asked for an MRI. I have bulging cervical discs and some degenerative. I am a nail tech, working has been killing me. I've been so depressed just thinking my fibro was the cause of all of my pain. With knowing something else is wrong, I'm hoping to at least be able to get treatments for my neck and maybe some relief. I'm really really upset with my Dr. He even told me at one point that he wasn't going to write me any more scripts! He embarrassed me so badly judging me like that when all along I had some pretty painful stuff going on, on top of my fibro. So much more but WOW!

I know exactly how you feel, im going through the same thing. I got referred to a pain management but can't go because I don't have insurance and can't afford it. And every doctor I come across won't prescribed anything stronger than tramodol. Which does not work and has worst withdrawal effects than any narcotic pain med I ever took.

That's insane! Your doctor should want to help you figure out what's wrong and really treat it. I would suggest getting another doctors opinion. There could always be secondary conditions that need to be diagnosed. I hope you figure it out!

Tramadol? Really? That doesn't even work on a sprain for me. Honey you need new doctors that know the meaning of pain.

We can thank our government for this, they have all the Dr's scared to prescribe narcotics any more.

From the geniuses that have marijuana classified as more dangerous than cocaine.

You would think that the government would know that prohibition has never worked. How many people die a year from alcohol a year? What benefit is reclassification of a drug? Now my meds cost twice the price. I do not have insurance and have too much to qualify for assistance. The research is there that marijuana works. Tax it, legalize it and put the money in our school systems. All I can say is try to make your vote matter. I have been voting my issues without regard for political parties. Hang in there it has to get better at some point.

I'm a Californian relocated to South Carolina. I'd be nodding profusely if it didn't hurt. I miss my medical marijuana card actually meaning something.

Having no insurance is what hinders me. I can't afford pain management clinic right. But hopefully a change is on the horizon. Praying hard for it!!!

Cspinelli, the doc was wrong for prejudging you. Just let him know you aren't drug seeking, but rather answers for why your pain was so much worse & better treatment seeking. Praying it all goes well for you! 🙂💕🙏🌼
