I just got back from the doctor. I was needing a refill on my pain medication. They told me that they will not refill my narcotic (Oxycodone 5mg) and would have to try something else. They had tried tramadol last week (I had a horrible headache after taking it) and this time I am getting Tylenol 3. I understand that some people have addiction problems but they can tell from my history that I have never abused my prescription. I have taken 60 pills in the last 8 months. And the only reason that I have been taking more is that I fell in November.
I am so frustrated. I have a MRI scheduled for October (I am in Canada so have to wait).
I have been doing ice and exercises but that is not working completely.
I just needed to complain. I know there is really no solution to this. I will just have to make the best of being in pain and trying to work and live a fairly normal life.
For those that are experienced with Canadian doctors is there any suggestions??? I moved here last August from the US and this is the first problem that I have had (other than the 4 month wait for an MRI).
