Ellis, I have no idea why she would change your meds if you were doing fine with what you were on. It surely has nothing to do with your ins. unless the cost of the meds you were on were too much and you said something. What kind of doctor are you seeing? It might be good to see a spine specialist such as an ortho or neuro to see what they can do for you.
Best of luck.
