I'm so new to this group. I'm a mother of 5 . I've been dealing with chronic lower back pain . Spinal Stenosis. I had been see a pain doctor for 6 years & was dismissed because he no longer would accept my state insurance. He said he only continued to see me as a courtesy. (For 6 years! ) so he gave me 3 months of medication till I found a new doctor . Well my primary gave 2 months of pain meds till I finally found another pain doctor . I started to see him almost a year ago . I loved the fact that he was giving me test that hadn't been done in the 6 years with the previous doctor . Diagnosed me with pinched nerves & the spinal stenosis. He preformed several injections & radiol frequency injections but really didn't help . Well my last drug test I was call a few days later telling me that my test came back positive for cocaine !! That he would only see me one more time to give me one more script. I couldn't believe it!! So I found a new pain doctor an hour away , go there today for him to tell me he would not prescribe me any medication but could schedule me for an injection. I was so emotional, embarrassed ,& mad , that I stormed out of there after he tells me that I need to find a clinic to get suboxten to get off my meds! I don't know what to do ! The doctor who let me go for the positive drug test does not properly hand samples . The first visit I had to come back to the office because someone had three out my urine sample that sat on the back of the toilet with 2 other samples ! The nurse had already called the pharmacy to tell them not to take my prescription until they got a new urine sample ! The day I took my last test there was 2 other sample in the bathroom when I went in to do mine . Someone please help , I don't know what to do !Welcome to Spine-Health
