Hello, Mandy! How are you doing? I am very sorry that you're in so much pain.
What type of doctor have you been seeing?
At this point, it really sounds like you need a pain management specialist. They are also the only doctors that are able to prescribe strong analgesic on a long-term ongoing basis, now.
It may be the Lyrica that's causing the easy bruising. Which muscle relaxant do you take?
Mandy! What was the full name of the Doc you were seeing in Richmond, for Opanas and Fentenel!! Please share name asap!!!
ThanksSo much ~Marcus
I am so sorry for your pain. I feel I am in the same boat.
Were you able to find the names of any doctors willing to prescribe pain meds? Compassionate doctors who will not treat me as a drug seeker?
Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much...
Sounds like you need a neurological consult.whatever you do,stop expirementing with fentanyl and these other drugs as they will kill you.go to a neurologist and go through the examinations needed to properly diagnose your condition(s) and then either the neuro or pain mgmt doc can and will help you.the troubles of recent stem from crooked doctors prescribing pills to people who are malingerers and are only looking for a high or to sell the meds on the streets.these types have made it tough on those of us who seriously have medical use for strong opioids.i refuse to use the word "need" because even with the pain i live with every day the medecine does not keep me alive but it does add to my quality of life quite a bit.try using a tens unit next time you see your doc.they do help alleviate pain somewhat.no medecine will take it all away.if it does...you are taking too much and are at risk of death.you will need to learn that you have to deal with pain to a certain degree.also sounding desperate while talking to the doc and over exaggerating pain will get you nowhere unless you are seeing a pill pusher and at the end of the day you wind up with a serious addiction.and in pain.you will be better off seeking a cure forwhat pains you instead of masking the symptom (pain) much love to you hon and good luck in your hunt.im sorry you hurt.i only replied because i saw that you have been trying fentanyl etc.and i truly want nobody to die.hang in there.
The dr i referred in Va, all do pill counts and drug panels to make sure pts are taking their meds and check the online virgina monitoring prescription line to make sure the pts is not Dr shopping. They're pretty tough where i live, they want REAL records. They're not playing games.
I have bad fibro RA neuropathy and a few other things could you please kindly let me know who you see as ive been calling doctors all morning. Thanks alot
Hi! This is the first time I have ever posted a question online, but I am in dire need of finding a pain management doctor near the Fredericksburg, Va area. I had an L-5 S-1 Spinal Fusion due to a car accident 4 years ago, and also suffer from Degenerative Disk Disease. I moved to Va last month from Ga, and the pain doctor I have been seeing is a REAL JERK! He REFUSED to keep me on the same meds I have been on for the last 4 years because he "knows what will work better." Well, needless to say, I have tried everything he suggested, and none of the regimens he has put me on work for me. Instead of going into the long story, I just need to find a doctor that will put me on the meds I had been taking for years that actually work. The medicine I had been on is: 15mg Oxycodone 4x's a day, 50mg Ultram 3x's a day, .5mg Clonazepam 4x's a day, 600mg Neurontin 3x's a day, 25mg Phenergan once daily.
He told me that if I didn't "like his way of doing things, then I can just dismiss him."
Well, the problem I'm having is he will only prescribe Extended Release Medication, and I have tried everything he put me on, but they don't work without a short-term medication for the break-through pain. I would really appreciate it if anyone could point me in the direction of a Pain Management Specialist that will prescribe me the medication I was on before. Apparently this is more difficult that I could have imagined :(
Thank you all for your help!
I have severe rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and carpal tunnel in both wrists. That's just the tip of the iceberg. Well I have been seeing the same Dr for the last 8 yrs and because people can't follow directions, or abuse their medication is why I am now looking for a new LEGITIMATE Dr. His practice made a decision to no longer write pain medication, bc they do not have the resources or time to monitor it properly. He wrote me a excellent referral letter, saying I follow all guidelines, and am a good patient. My rheumatologist believes in a different pain medication than I am prescribed, and so he said he would write me rxs for a new medication, but if it ain't broke don't fix it. I have tried everything under the sun, and I'm also taking Arava, ibuprofen, and Plaquenil to supplement the inflammation. I am looking for either a general practitioner or a internal medicine Dr that is understanding and will allow me to continue to live my life w as minimal pain as possible. I am open to any and all suggestions.
Hi I'am in Fred/Spotsy have you had any luck? I have DDD, Stenosis, Bulging discs, fibro.
I don't know any pain management dr around that arntvtightvassrsv I'm not drug seeking ibjustcwantvtovbe out of pain or have it subside to where itsxbareable
Hi there! Sorry to hear your having so much trouble. I'm in the same boat living right outside of FredVegas lived in the fredericksburg area all my life. I'm not sure how far you are willing to travel, and I'm new to this whole message board not really sure how it works. But there is a great pain management dr. In manassas named Gerald lee. More than likely he will treat you with those med, providing Recent MRI and and records.
It is very difficult and frustrating to "find" the right fit and right pain dr. The dea has them all terrified. And for good reason, those of us that are legit pay the price for those who abuse . I went thur the same thing with finding someone whom I trusted and would let me partipate in my care. I had heck of time finding dr for my pain after moving to va from Florida, I even went back to Florida a few times and saw my old dr until I found a dr I liked. I went thur a few. I was not going to be treated like a child or spoke down to by any dr , I am always polight. I am an grown women, I know my body better than anyone.. I had no luck in Richmond area. I live in Williamsburg, I have to drive into Hampton roads to see a great pcp, if a pain suffer has complex problems. And other medical issues. The dr become frustrated too, when your dr is not willing to listen to your needs ,such as not wanting to try or give you break thur medicine, I think of that as a control freak issues with that dr. I had dr like this.. I changed.
Balint Clinic in Weyers Cave is closer, southwest of Roanoke. People from all over the state are forced to go there.
Fentanyl and other drugs will Kill you? NO, I'm going to do it Myself if I don't get some help.
I'm legit. That's fine. I expect that. Please share the contact info of a doctor or two. Thanx and god bless.
No one wants to prescribe pain meds, due to the od's that have been reported. This is cruel and in humane tx. If you do find a doctor you have to worry about the Dr.getting reported to the Feds. Now govt states that no one is to be precribed pains meds as a first. alternative. I find it upalling,it's not your fault everyone has to pay for the many that have OD. They made the meds for pain and thats what they should be used for. Many doctors are afraid to prescribe pain meds. How can the govt. overide a doctor order. Angry and dismayed.
Helenebbb .....could you please share the name of the doctor you see in Hpt. Rds.? I have been looking ever since my doc.'s license got suspended while he was trying 2 help his ppl.... it's been a PIA finding someone w/ all this BS going on thanks 2 the gov overreacting as usual 2 the druggies they can't catch so all of us must suffer...it's sad...I have so many records, diagnostic results & you can see the damage when you look at me!! They're gonna kill us or we'll do it ourselves. PPL can only handle so much. Thanks for your help...
