I was in a panic yesterday about going to the pain doc and asking again for pain medication and my results. She wants to do cortisone facet injections on 3 vertebrae IF her next order for a thoracic mri comes back fine. She mentioned p.t.. I told her the chiro did not help after 2 yrs of blind trust.
I became VERY UPSET, however, when I asked her for pain medication in the interim. I told her norco helped me and that the ultracet she gave me did nothing whatsoever. Again, she said she doesn't do narcotics because all they do is scramble a person's brain. I felt close to tears and was so desperate I asked her for the ultracet again (figured it was better than nothing), and I almost passed out when she refused to give me the ultracet, either. She said that my pharmacy called her that I took depression medicine (which I indicated on my patient questionaire) and that the ultracet might make me feel suicidal. I came home so upset and disappointed and in disbelief that a patient could be denied any help whatsoever. I'm going to have a bone to pick with my pharmacist in the morning. This was done behind my back and I feel emotionally devestated at being treated like a low life when I am nothing like that and took this as a personal affront. I am now afraid someone has 'flagged me' and don't know what to do to protect my well being.
If anyone has any ideas, PLEASE let me know what you think I should do. I couldn't sleep last night I was so sad over this treatment!
