I have been taking pain medications for my many issues for 15+ years. Recently I was discharged after going back and forth with my pain management Doctors who would not work with me or my doctors. Would not let me off for a week to clean my system etc. They made it so hard and FOCUSED only on How many pills. If I was taking all of them. If I was blocked with constipation they could care less. Anyway after a while I just messed up. 15 years of following regimen and when my Teeth started rotting out. I just made a mistake out of fear and desperation. How can I get back on my pain meds with a caring doctor? My neurologists and Primary keep telling me I need it. I am in horrible pain and have been Tagged as a drug abuser. Is there any help. I will never do anything to lose my pain meds again if I get them back. I don't want Marijuana. I just want my life back and doctors that show trust instead of sneaking and .......Anyway does any Pain management give you a second chance. PLEASE HELP

    Today, narcotics are scrutinized in every possible way. You keep hear about pain contracts and such. This has become necessary as just one means to help ensure that these medications are available to those that need them and follow all the rules.

    When a rule is broken, it can be a very difficult uphill climb. People are human and as such mistakes will happen But how any one doctor deals with all of that is a different question. There is nothing telling the doctors that they must do this or that because a patient is in pain.

    You need to rely on the compassion of a doctor. Explaining everything to them, open and honest and see what will happen.

  • Was that you made or why exactly you were discharged?
    The chances of another pm doctor taking you on is going to depend on several things-first is exactly what the reason for the mistake and dismissal is. Second is your total honesty. Blaming your previous doctor is not going to fly.
    Trust , when it comes to pain management is earned, and is not something that should be expected from a patient until you have built a honest reputation with the doctor and demonstrated that you are a compliant patient.
    There are other methods to manage pain, aside from opiates, that may be recommended , as well as therapies.
