I haven't been on the board much lately, I was out of town for 2 weeks in early August and of course, got busy with life.
Now to my current situation. I believe I am going thru withdrawals. I have been on narcotics (mostly percoset) since March. My PM was perscribing my meds, then he told me he wanted me to go see a Doctor of Osteopath b/c he didn;t think he could help me anymore. The doctor he wanted me to see had a 2 month wait to get in (I figure she must be good)but silly me didnt want to wait that long. So he gave me a list of other DOs in my area and I got in with one the next week. I won't go into that experince, I have posted about it previously, but lets just say she SUCKED. Luckily I never cancelled the orginal appt with the "good dr" which should have been on August 11th. So my PM gave me more meds to last until 8/21, which was very generous of him. Well, I was supposed to return from my trip to Alaska on August 10th, but a damn volcano blew on the Alaskan chain and AK Airlines stopped all flights to and from AK. SO, I didn't get home until late on 8/11 and yep, you guessed it, missed my much awaited DO appointment!!!
If you are still with me (I apologize for taking so long but this story is so bizarre) I called my PM the next day and explained what had happened. I had a new appt with the good DO scheduled for 9/11 but would obviously run out of meds before then. His office told me that I needed to see my primary care for meds. Well ok, fine. Stupid me thought I could just live w/o meds until 9/11. STUPID ME!! I stretched out my remaining meds until 2 days ago. I had a horrible, restless night last night and feel anxious, cold, runny nose, restless legs, etc. I googled my symptoms and figured out I am going thru w/d.
I freaked out and called my primary care doctor and explained to the front desk lady what had happened (she probably thinks I'm an addict). She said she would give the doctor a note and made me an appt with the PA at 3:30. So I guess my question is, what can they do for me?? Luckily I have a good realtionship with my primary care, my whole family goes to her (in-laws, etc) and she was the one who ordered my MRI and referred me to PM in the beginning of this nightmare. I know she gets updates from the various doctors so she isn't completely in the dark. What could she do for me?
