    hi all, i know this has been posted recently but i just cant deal with this anymore..i cant keep going to the er to get pain meds...the last time i went i was refused and i found out about a good pain specialist but he isnt covered under my insurance and i cant afford him at all...im missing too much work lately and the pain sucks and the two docs that ive seen refuse to give me anything..so right now im not taking anything at all for this..the one finally gave me a referral to a pain clinic but they wont give me meds either and want me to do physical therapy..somehow im not sure it would help me any at all..im 22 and i havent had an injury/loss of movement either..i know that maybe it sounds naive to say that p.t wouldnt help me but i just cant see how it would...they say i need to exercise but im in too much pain to do anything and ofcourse at this moment my stupid boyfriend is asking me if im whining to my fibrooo friends and blah bblah blah..ugh can i say im frustrated at everything today.i feel like that no doctors will help me bacause of my age and i think that they all think that im a drug seeker once i tell them that my primary refuses me anything but i dont know what else to do..arghhh well i hope someone helps me..im about to go to mexico and start medicating myself lol..if i could ever make it there.hehe help please.i want my life back(considering i havnt had much of one yet at all)

    to hear your having such troubles Ami. I have to ask have you gone to the mayo clinic at all? If not don't! not to sound that way but their clinic is mainly a drug rehab and they take everything from you. I don't know if you have seen anyone from the Mayo clinic or not. If you have that may be what has got you going in circles with Doctors too. I will e-mail a friend who lives in Minnapolis and see if he has any ideas for you okay. Sit tight and I will let you know tomorrow if I can be of any help. Hang in there sweety. Someone will help you okay.
    Take care.

    I still have not heard anything from him. He is in and out of the Hospital alot so that may be what the deal is. He has severe migraines and arachnoiditis. I know that he travels to Chicago alot too to a specialist there. So, who knows where he is right now. I am really sorry about this. i will let you know as soon as i hear anything okay.
