I am always nervous about going to see a new doctor. When something is working for me, they seem to have the overwhelming urge to change it. Yesterday I had my first appointment with a new pain doctor. The first thing that happened was when I was filling out all my paperwork there was a 2 page contract that I had to sign. It was a long list of things that I had to do to "participate" in their clinic and a huge list of "do and dont" rules. They were rules about never selling pain meds to others, dont give them to others, dont use any street drugs, be willing to participate in random urine drug tests, pick one pharmacy and always use only that one, never accept any pain meds from any other doctor, hospital, or clinic under any condition. It made me feel like I was signing into a rehab instead of a pain management clinic. As I was filling out my paperwork, 2 other patients got done and came out. They were both in tears and seemed distressed. When I finally got taken back (over an hour had passed since I finished the 45 minute paperwork) I was put into a room and the doctor came in after just a couple of minutes. He read my medical history and the first thing he told me was that it is hard to believe that a patient has Fibromyagia because the only diagnosing factors are the symptoms reported by the patient. Then he told me that he does not treat fibro with narcotics. I take Percocet everyday to keep my pain level down. Then he told me his treatment plan. He wanted to teach me how to COPE WITH the pain instead of finding ways to stop the pain. He said that I needed to learn to live with the pain. Needless to say that was both my first, and last appointment with this doctor. Does anyone else have this much trouble with pain clinics?
