I finally heard back from my PM's assistant today after calling for 2 weeks. They said they will refill my pain meds this one more time and then refer me to a chiro who does manipulation. Last time I talked to PM doc he said if the SI joint injection didn't work we would try an epidural and I also discussed a nerve test. Now the assistant is saying there is no notation of this. She said that if this doc they are referring me to can't help then I need to go back to my primary. I loved this PM until today and now I am heart broken =(( . It was like she was treating me as a drug seeker and they are throwing in the towel and won't help me anymore. I am going to call my primary after the Holidays to have him refer me to neuro to have nerve test done.
I am in so much pain and just want to stop masking my pain with narcotic pain meds and get down the cause of the problem and fix it. I am so upset that he is just tossing me aside. I made it clear I want off the meds and want to get back on my feet so I can feel better and start working again and I only take pain meds because I AM IN PAIN!! I don't abuse them ever. I didn't ask for this pain! X(
I am just so upset and it's Christmas Eve. I am tired of living in constant pain :''( Thanks or listening to me vent. I have to go to my parents' soon to do christmas there. Hopefully that will take my mind off it for awhile. I am going to have a couple of glasses of wine tonight too 8} .
