I was researching today on the Internet for support and found this website. So here I am. I am in great severe pain with DDD and SI joint on my right side. I have no job no insurance and on no meds. I am pretty close to throwing in the towel, I won't lie. Today has been really hard and severely times I thought of getting in my car and driving into a tree but then I cried and thought about my family.
I am in such pain and can't afford a PM doc who only wants injections at 5k a pop. I can't even afford his office visit fee at $375 which wouldn't matter cause he won't give any meds via a script.
I am close to rock bottom. I read somewhere of folks working out a payment plan with the doctor and hospital to get surgery but how do you attempt this?
I did apply for the Pre-existing conditions insurance but won't have an answer until December which means if approved wouldn't start until January. I don't know mentally if I can hold on that long. I just won't lie.
Gosh is there any hope for me? I am over the edge ......help me with some advice. Please from someone that understands.
Ps. I do go to a sliding scale primary doctor tomorrow but I have no idea if they will even try to help my pain. I am popping tyneol and Advil like it is jelly beans and my stomach hurts really bad probably from an ulcer I have created so that I'd how I got the appt tomorrow.
