Re: P.O'd about PM office

Thanks for the feedback. I am trying to deal with the pain and use as little medication as possible. I am a full-time I&C engineer for a large consulting firm in the midwest, so I am not, nor do I want to be, a drug seeker. I just want to feel like I can live a somewhat normal life without being in constant pain.

That said, I do understand that medical offices are hyper-sensitive now. I've read several articles over the last couple of months regarding the massive increase in prescription drug related overdoses that ERs are now seeing. I'm not sure that there is a rational explanation, but I could see why a doctor's office would be very reticent to prescribe stronger meds. than what I'm taking.

I'll just try to keep trucking along, at least until this winter when it will probably get unbearable again.
