This is my very first post, and I am hoping someone can relate. Diagnois in "98" but know I've had FM since "88" I also have deterating disc diease, which lead to neck surgery, and also shoulder replacment. (Another whole story) My first MD, did pretty good at keeping pain at about a 8, but after 3 years, dumped me. Said he wasn't comfortable anymore handling my meds. I went to a Rhemumy, after signing "Drug Contract" kept me out of the pain, I wasn't comfortable with all the narcotics he had me on. Neither was he, Morphine patch, Vicoidan, etc..etc.. Dead end there,I found another MD, and have been with him for 3 years. PROBLEM...he now is dumping me. I'm really distraught over this. I'm on the lowest med's I've been on ever. Ultram, and Vicodan twice a week. He will only give me 30 tabs per 3 monthes. When I told him, I wanted to look at other regiments, and brought him in a list of what others are trying, he immediatley said, I am setting you up with a Rheumy! This is very upsetting, as once again, starting over,from the beginning, of what I have tried, what my symtoms are, just the whole nine yards! Depression is hitting big time! Which we all know makes the pain level go up. What I want to know, is if anyone else is having this long term problem with doctors dumping them? I'm frighten to share anything with this new Dr. It's almost like they don't like the fact I stay on top of new ways to treat Fibro. Maybe my approach is wrong? Should I be less aggressive? I really appreciate that this site is here,as I have went from full active life to nothingness. Thanks for being here.
