Hello New to the board
I have to say I am so happy I found somewhere I can come to talk to people who are going through the same thing as me.
I had an accident at work almost a year ago. Since then I have been on workers comp/disability. The injury pretty much ruined me ever working in a high pace environment again.
I had an orthopedic surgeon until two weeks ago. He sent me to a DR to do a discogram which I decided against.( I have had two MRIs in less than a year) I went back to my ortho and told him I did not think now was the right time for a fusion. I am to young and my pain has become well controlled with epidural injections and medication. He got kind of weird, and said ok I am going to refer you to PM. I said well what about my epidural and my medications. His reply was you can get those through PM. I was shocked. The holidays were coming up and there was no way I was going to get through all that red tape before my medications ran out. Come to find out after speaking with my workers comp company they never got his referral! So here I am about to run out of meds he will not refill. I am so scared, I know exactly what a person looks like withdrawing.
I am stuck because I have no DR, almost out of medications, and no referral.
Any help would be appreciated or really just support. I feel like I am being treated like a drug seeker. Its awful. We are talking about a very small dosage Norco 5/325 here. I also know I have built up a tolerance to this drug as well. This last couple weeks have been tough.
