  • Hello
    It seems Pain Management is full of trials and tribulations. I had trouble with my first pain managemnt Dr. I was 23 at the time and I think that contributed. When I first saw him I was already on the fetentyl patch and that seemed to trouble him.He ripped me off of it sending me straight into withdrawel. He gave me nerve meds which of course didnt touch the horrific pain I was in. I went on in that pain for what seemed like forever, it seemed he didnt believe I was in pain. It was not until about a month later, I said to him "my legs are so cold". He felt them and began to appologize tell me he now knew I needed relief. Long story...I later found out the reason he was so hesitant to perscribe meds to me was because he was already being investigated for insurance and med issues and within that month he was arrested and sentenced to time in prison.
    It was onto a new Pain management Dr. for me....
    This time I lucked out. She was sooo nice and gave me pain relief without hesitation. I am still with that Dr til this day and we have a great relationship. I can call her on her personal cell phone at any time with a problem and she never minds. SHe has been through so much with me and I dont know where I would be without her. We work together to contol my pain.I have an imput on my meds and that makes a huge difference.
    SO I guess the moral of the story is there is hope, there are good pain Drs out there but sometimes the road to them is bumpy.
    I wish you much luck with your adventure into the world of pain management.
