I'm brand new to this forum and wondering if I could get some help.
My PM just quit his practice and basically left MANY MANY people in
need of medication for pain (including me) high and dry! I'm extremely
bothered by this and absolutely dread any type of withdrawal. I am
on 30mg methadone tid and 30mg oxycodone qid for breakthrough
pain due to 3 bulging discs and spine degenerative disease.
Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as a new,caring
pain management doctor that won't give me grief for being on
the only thing in the entire world that HELPS my back pain and lets me
function as a normal human being? One comment I absolutely HATE
hearing is "You're just too young to be on those kinds of pain medications."
I'm almost 38 years old,if I'm "young" enough to be going through this
debilitating, HORRID, life altering pain, why am I not old enough to
get something to HELP get rid of the pain???
I don't abuse,snort,shoot,smoke,give,sell,or trade the meds.I never ask
for them early or "lose"or get them "stolen". I just want to be able to go
to work, clean my house,and enjoy the time spent with my family. Nothing more, nothing less.
Sorry for the long post. I just wanted to explain a little bit about me and my problem. Thanks for reading this and please feel free to email me.
