I'm really happy with the pain control I am getting I have 3 bulging disk in my neck with c6 I belevel is the worst 3 years ago it blew out and the doc put me on hydrocodone 7.5 and it worked good for a long time about a year ago the meds stopped working as good. Any way I just moved to a new town my old doc gave me 2 months worth of pills and told me to find a new doc. I went to make a appointment and the appointment was made for months out so I went to the er to get a few refills where the first time she did not question it just filled the prescription I told her I needed no questions asked the second time I went to the ER I brought my medical records with me so she would know that I wasn't feeding her a line. She walked in the room and gave me the RX no problem I then told her I brought my record she got a big smile on her face and said yes I would love to read them. She then made a few calls and got me into a doc the next week. When I got to the new doc she did not want to give me the pills but she did. She then said that my MRI was 3 years old and she needed a new one. I did the MRI and found out that the pinch on my spinal cord went from mild to severe and that I was not getting immune to the meds the pain was really just getting worse. I asked my new doc if she could give me something to control the pain better and just like that I was put on percocet 10 325. I'm so sorry for u all that can not get the help u need. The only problem I have ever had was the wait to get into the doctor and that's it they look at my MRI and thats it they really do control pain at least where I used to live and where I live now
