I was referred to a PM dr from my spine dr. I went to see him for the first time June 2. I like him and I think this is going to work. Before I left, looking at my files and everything I have been through, he prescribed me 50MCG of Fentanyl, and only 30 norco 7.5/325. The Norco was used for BT pain. Before I left, they gave me a referral sheet and told me I had to get a Psycholgical Evaluation for long term narcotic use. I live in the state of Illinois. Has anyone ever heard of this? I have a appt. on Thursday next week to go. Personally I do not need to see a Psychologist, but is there something I do not know about? The nurse told me I have to see one before I come back, or the dr could lose his license to practice. Any thoughts or advice on this? Oh by the way, when I go back on the 30th, none of the meds helped me at all. How do I tell him this?
