Cool new pain management dr

well I applied for ssi about forty six days ago I am almost 39 years old I have been in mental hospitals starting when I was thirteen years old been in every thirty day hospital for any number of miles from here on and off although I havent been hospitalized for the last six years I have been court ordered by a judge to go to mhmr which I have done for the last steady two and half years. Anyhow been on abilify for the last month in the last three months tried neurotin, prozac and resperdol the list goes on anyways i am awaiting ssi decision and its the longest wait of my life i mainly need to health insurance that goes with it. I am also on hydrocodene for knee and shoulder pain by general doctor put me on a small amount and referred me to a pain management specialist which i am so scared i am going to go to and they will deny me my medicine what do you think? I have never been to pain management and I am so scared he will treat me like some of the local doctors do as if I was just trying to get meds for nothing but the pain comes from a very bad car wreck I drove off a bridge and shattered my whole body years ago I just got tired of living in pain and went to dr after dr till I found one who would listen and prescribe and give me this referral will this new doctor be more willing to listen since I am a referred patient?

PM doc will be MORE able to help in most cases than a GP. Be confident and talk to them and don't leave anything out!

Re: new pain management dr

thank you i am so nervous about this first visit its coming up on next monday and while my gp has been good about the hydrocodone I have had other doctors practically laugh at me and that really hurt besides the pain I actually feel that I didnt know could be something managed. Thank you for the upbeat message.

Re: new pain management dr

anyways i have applied for ssi based on anxiety, mania, adult add, personality disorder, ocd that means i have such a short attention span to say the least anyways i have to go to a doctor that ssi wants me to go to and am a little nervous bout that i have to drive an hour well someone drives me to get to this new appointment I am hoping to get approved I have applied before but I always changed my mind and backed out of it but now I am going for it.

Re: new pain management dr

hope all went well for you I had an easy appointment needless to say this doctor says he is not the one for me he is a neurologist and for some reason well because the doctor i wanted works in his group is not taking cash patients they say insurance only anyways this new doctor was very nice to me and prescribed the medicine i am currently on and had x rays and such ordered at my local dr. very good and I am so amazed out how different pain management specialists treated me even if I went to the wrong type they are still so much easier and nicer to talk to vs gp.
