ok, so I live in MN, and as now it's winter, my pain has increased due to the cold and snow. So I finally broke down (literally-cried at the dr.) and switched to a narcotic pain med-mscontin. I take one at night, and one in the am. Now, it is working better than the tramadol, but still most days have quite a bit of pain.
I went back to the dr. for the one month follow up, and he ordered a drug test...is doing to all his narc. patients. No problem....I may have missed a few of the am doses, but am confident that I had taken the last 3 on schedule.
I get a call from his nurse yesterday saying that there was no sign of the med in my system! she talked to the dr. and called me back today to have me come in for another blood test and my pill bottle. (something else I was told at last visit was now being done to all!)
Has anyone else had this happen, or am I just weird this way?
