I had a bad flare on Christmas day. Was able to watch kids open presents. Hubby gave me nothing on Christmas day saying he forgot. Well I think Christmas is about the birth of Christ and for the children. That was only the beginning of my troubled dayI was in bed most for 1/3 of the day in miserable flu like pain. Went to the ER on Christmas Eve only to hear you are having withdrawal symptoms because you are out of pain meds and I can not give you anything for pain today. She also said that she could not give me a pain injection because I drove myself to the ER. She did call my Pain Mgmt Dr who was of course away for the holidays. I talked to his Receptionist this morning and she is suppose to call me back soon. I could not believe the audacity of that ER Dr. I will call and put in a complaint about her. She was rude and unhelpful. Somethings would have to change very soon. I believe that I am on the wrong kind of meds or that they are not working as they where a few weeks ago. I should have not been in so much pain on Christmas eve or Christmas day.
