So this has bothered me for many months. Back in May, I was in California for 3 weeks. I went to the walk in clinic there, with terrible pain. I had explained to the doctor, that I was currently being treated back home, and had not yet received a diagnoses.
Now, along with a few prescriptions (norco/soma/naproxen) This doctor wanted to give me a shot. He said that I would not be able to drive. I called my sister in, asked if she could drive me home, and watch my son for me, which she agreed.
What has bothered me, is what this doctor said about the shot. I told him the medications I was on, brought in my bottles, etc. He asked how long I had been taking them, and If I was taking more than I had told him. I told him I had been taking them for a month, and only in prescribed doses. He then told me he needed to know the absolute truth, because If I were abusing these medications, the shot he was going to give me would put me into acute withdrawal, and I would need to be hospitalized for respiratory distress. He said that many times, he has had "drug seekers" in his office, who lied about their use. At the very last second, they stop him from giving them the shot, for fear of what he told them could happen.
Now, I don't know what this shot was. I know that it wasn't demerol. It made me very loopy. I couldn't stay awake, but could hear everything around me. It also made my skin hurt, like a severe sunburn. It hurt for my clothes to touch my skin.
What has bothered me, is what the doctor said about the "acute withdrawal" Was he telling me a lie, to make sure I wasn't drug seeking? Or is there really such a drug that could cause that? I have never heard of such a thing before. Has anyone heard of this?
Thanks for your input
