I couldn't find a pain doctor to give me meds and so my family doctor does it. I tried back shots(failed) physical therapy,I can't do. I can't lift , stand or walk much with spasms and PAIN.
I kept winding up on the floor locked up going in a out of the ER rooms. Had mri, doctor started ultram, muscle relaxer.etc Still, back to the ER. pain meds increased from strong to elite. Went to pain doctor for shots. No effect at all. after 7 months later surgeon told me to live with it. No life, can't
work. reclining chair only no bed or I can't get up. and if I lock up go to er. That's what he said to live with. Back to family doctor. Increases pain med big time to get some relief.4 months later I find a really good surgeon but he wants me to be completely off meds before he will take me. I tell my family doctor about this and he tries to send me back to a pain doctor. none of them will take me because my family doc has been giving me meds for 11 months now. I called him today to call me back 3 times to tell him, he has to ween me off under his care but he does not return call today.
Without meds or some meds I will be back in ER. How do I get down to no meds first just to get to be a new patient of the really good surgeon I found? I suffer with meds and now no surgeon will take me if im on meds. If I didn't need meds I wouldn't need surgery. MY family doc has a attitude now and it's not my fault. how do I get down to no meds and suffer just to get surgeon to take me.
It feels like a catch 22. Any suggestions?
