This is a bit of a rant. Over the weekend I was in the ER..9 hours Sat and then back on Mon for 11 to continue testing. The reason I went had nothing to do with my back. This is my *issue* every dr and nurse felt it necessary to talk down to me because of my pain medications! THere I sat in an immense amount of pain and having to justify why I take my medications to them! What bs. One dr went as far to tell me "My back hurt so much one time that I couldn't put my socks on..but I refused to get an mri because you know the only reason they do those are to see if you're a candidate for surgery"...My response..(I was already crying my face off) "Well your back obviously didn't hurt as much as you said it did..oh and you're walking fine now, must be nice".
I hate the medical community right now. Just feeling terrible that they made ME feel like I was a wimp or that I was trying to pull a fast one..even though I actually REFUSED any pain meds for the reason I was there.
It's so frustrating..and on top of everything else I have a new disorder to deal with. GRRRRRReat
thanks for listening
