Hello. I'm new here. My question is multi-fold. 1. I'm new to pain management and just went to the "intake." 2. I went over on my prescription for pain meds last month due to a tremendous increase in pain. 3. My MD wrote a new script, and referred me to pain management after going over. My MD was understanding and confessed they didn't know what to do - as pain management isn't their specialty. 4. This is chronic and has been going on for 8 years. This last bout has landed me on Percocet for the past 7 months. 5. When I showed up to the intake, I had already gone through my 1 month (new) script in 2 weeks (2 days worth remaining. So I had only a few). 6. At the intake, the doctor stated they do not prescribe on the first visit. They called my doctor to see if they would fill another script. 7. I have to wait a week before seeing my new pain management doctor.
What is the most likely outcome? The pain is already intolerable. I'm trying to use the few remaining pain pills for when it's really bad. But, there are no "good times." I don't want to hound either of the doctors. I had to sign a PM contract with my new one. I don't want to appear as a pill seeker by calling. Being in limbo and not even knowing if I'll get a call with a "yes or no" is driving me nuts. Please advise, and thank you.
