I am trying to not be annoyed but my PCP is driving me nuts. I am on 6 Norco per day 100mg of Gabapentin in the am and the pm. Called Doc about my pain not being under control the suggestion was to increase the Gabapentin to 200mg at night. I understand him wanting to try that I guess but I don't even know if the Gabapentin is even working. So I did the increase and it didn't help me sleep nor help the pain. I am trying to get the nurse to call me back but I'm feeling ignored. If he doesn't want to help me with my pain control then just tell me so I figure something else out.
I have an appointment with a pain management doctor on the 16th for my Spinal Cord Stimulator pre appointment. I am wondering if I could ask him to take me on as a pm patient? I just want one doctor that understands what I am going through. I know there is a need to be cautious etc.... but I am at the end of my rope. I don't think I'm asking too much, I just want a little more pain control. I shouldn't have to feel like I want to just crawl in a corner and not move I have 3 kids to take care of so I force myself to function.
Sorry for the rant I just had to get it out!!
