Discussions that mention duragesic

Pain Management board

:confused:My PCP referred me to PM when I didn't want to go on Oxycontin due to Back and DDD issues. PM has helped with those issues with narcotic therapy and Trigger Point injections and SI injections. However, now my arthritis is acting up in all of my joints ( RA was neg). The dose I am on with the Duragesic and the Percocets do not help my knees or shoulder or ankle when they act up. Do I mention this to PM doctor or should I go ahead and make appointment with a Ortho Doc ? All my PCP does is tell me to take more of my Percs but PM has me on a max amount a day. I don't want to go to another Doctor and look like a Doctor shopper so I may mention to PM in 2 weeks that arthritis is not being helped with current meds and see what she says.
