Hi I have had RSD for almost 3 years. Where I live it is really hard to find a doctor that understands it. My GP was honest enough to tell me in all of his years
of practice I'm only his 2nd case. He has been pretty good at giving some pain meds. But its gotten now where 20mg oxycontin and up to 4 5mg Oxy IR along
with the usual Nerontin, anti-depressent and more is just not even taking the edge off anymore.
In the time I have had RSD I have went through every penny I had in savings plus borrowed just for the meds. I have social security disability from a older back injury
Well today I go to see about a nerve block,,, the hospital sees my Medicare card and thats cool.. then I show them my QMB card and they go off cause is from Va and the hospital is in NC.
They refiused to take it. I tell them that I just can't afford the 20%...there just is no money left. They acted like I was the lowest form of human life ever to walk in the place.
Of course I had to leave,, just getting SSDI is barely paying my normal bills.. Well now I really don't know what to do..
I have thought about just ending it all..I just don't think I can go on much longer like this.
