I've asked my doctor for some pain medicine several times. I know there are some pills that would help, but he wont do it. Two years ago i had a herniated disc out of nowwhere it squashed my spinal cord real bad and I got a laminectomy. For two years ive been dealing with pain. The first 18 months i didnt have a Primary doctor and couldnt get one, so i just went to the hospital because I hurt so bad and i couldnt function like normal. Then i finally got medicaid and its been like six months im trying to get some relief with this doctor now im starting to realize he doesnt beleive me or doesnt give a damn he ordered physical therapy, an x ray, an mri. But no pain meds. Not even NSAIDs. Ive been seeking hrelp with mental health because ive totally gone crazy and dont know what else to do to cope. Chronic pain really does cause depression, so watch out. Its terrible to try to adjust to the me I am now. My identity used to be a hard working, tough, stoic man. Now i am perceived as weak, lazy, dont care enough about my kids, lying scamming drug seeker. Yeah, im seeking drugs. Ive been seeking drugs for two years. Im seeking releif from pain even if only for a few hours. Im at high risk for alcoholism i know if i start drinking or doing streetdrugs and it gives me releif then its over, im gonna die on the street. I wish Dr. Kevorkian was still in business I would give hime a call.
