    Sorry you are having to go through this. I finally got pain meds in May from my family doc. Now, since 7/1/05, they don't take our insurance anymore. So, I don't know what I'm going to do next year.

    We won't know what insurance options we have until November. At least I got enough pain meds to last me until next year as I don't usually take but 1 or 2 a day. He gave me 5 refills...

    Because of certain meds I take, there is nothing I can take for pain, but Tylenol and that doesn't help me much.

    I want to keep my family doc. I've been going there for 25 years, but I may have to change to either another doc or use my doc for out of network, which would cost quite a lot. :( This doc problem is a bummer. :(

    Good luck with the other doc!

    Hugs,
    Faye

    I WAS DIGNOISED IN 2000. HAVE BEEN IN PAIN SINCE 1989.MY DOC LEFT TOWN. SO I WENT TO ANOTHER AND HE ASKED QUES. AND GAVE ME A PAMPLET ABOT FM AND CFS. MY OLD DOC SAID IT WAS ARTHRITIS. BUT HE WAS ALLWAYS THERE FOR ME. HE NEVER MADE ME FILL LIKE I WASNT IN PAIN OR WAS JUST AN ADDICT. HE WOULD GIVE ME WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS BEST. BUT NOTHING WORKED. NOTHING STILL DOSNT WORK. I HOPE THIS GUY WILL AT LEAST HELP ME. GOING TO REFER HIM TO THIS WEB SITE. THE CLINIC THAT I'M AT IS FOR IMMUNOLOGY STUDY. THEY DONT KNOW ANYTHING. AND THE ONE'S THAT DO DONT STAY AROUND LONG. THANKS FOR LETTING ME VENT AND FOR UNDERSTANDING. GOD BLESS

    You were right to get any doctor that you could see.They ahve to see you first because of the abuse of these drugs on the street.They could be in deep trouble if they weren't careful.

    I think most of us here have been in your situation. I read an article recently that said pain is the most undertreated symptom and I certainly believe it! Why people are made to suffer is beyond me. Isn't our quality of life worth something?

    Anyway, good luck with your appt.

    This is so sad! I know that doctors are under pressure to not prescribe pain meds, but if they can't find a cure for some of the things that are causing the pain, it's almost worse than being alive.

    The laws about this stuff are just too strict. We should be able to sign some sort of release of liability for the pain meds. If something happens to us for having taken them, it's our own fault, but let us take them whenever we need them. Don't tie our doctors' hands. If we abuse them, it's our fault and becomes our problem, but at least we won't hurt so very badly. I understand why the system is set up the way it is, just don't agree with it.
