I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If ANYONE knows of a good doctor that prescribes strong meds willingly in the Denver area please email me and let me know. I am in desperate need of help as I am going to be SCREWED if I cannot find a good doctor. SOMEONE please help me with a doctor!!!!!

I understand. Yes, they are only willing to pay for suboxone if it's a specialist. Do you have a line on a doc that is in a practice but is more of internal medicine? They normally ate the pcps that write for pain meds. Have you talked to the Dr. That works at the clinic you are/were at in Aurora? He runs a hospice so he writes class 2 all the time. He couldn't help me because I don't take them because of the suboxone.

VeryChatty, I believe Dr Chiacca and his group do stimulus therapy! They are on north Parker Rd! They require a referral but all are very good in the group!

I have a question for the group! What happens at CPR if your meds r taken? I've never had the issue but someone I c often there had this happen to him and he's really upset! I told him to call them, he's never been a problem or flunked a UA! Anybody have any ideas to tell him? Thanks guys! I can't imagine going close to three weeks without my meds!

Belle is so right about sleep rituals. If you Google "sleep hygiene" it'll give you vast amounts of info on the best practices. Bed for sleep and intercourse only, no TV, or computer, but a reader is OK. I guess they have a monitor that doesn't stimulate your brain the same way. If you do check your phone or TV it resets the clock on neurons calming down. I read that it takes 3 hours of no stimulus to let the mind rest. Anyway hope everyone is doing better than yesterday.

Rainbow are you avoiding suboxone or looking to take it? Please forgive my brain fog and confusion. Either way I have several doctor's names if you're looking for more than a nurse practitioner can offer. You are always welcome to request my email, or ask Susie, Cindy, or Wendy. We probably were ccd on an email together in Jan.

As for my sorrows...
I saw Dr. R today and he said that he was unable to help me other than a non benzo anxiety med (I'm already on Ativan and happy with the dose). So I am back in search of a pain specialist that believes in stimulant pain relief. As Dr. S. Wright retired and Wally Arthur left practice due to medical conditions I'm left with 2 that I know of...otherwise I have to go into w/d from suboxone for 36 hours and then can start opiates again. I have to have something for breakthrough pain when my RA drugs are in Flux. I just want to be able to shower and clean myself with out yelping in pain. I went from 30% in bed, 70% out to the exact opposite. I love my home but bed jail sucks.
Anyone have experience with stimulants for pain or know of a Dr that believes the results?

Thank You to all of you, who have shared with me some good suggestions to help me sleep. Some I have already tried, but a couple I have not, and am definitely ready to give them a try! I have a rare Lung disease that has cost me one lung already, so I as well as most Drs, are afraid to use any sleep medication. Because of all the Steroids for my Lungs, the bones in all of my large joints have been eaten away. I have had a hip replacement, a 6 Lumbar vertebrae fusion, both knees totally replaced, parts of both scapulas removed and a total L shoulder replaced, all due to Steroids. But it was better than dying at the time. I am now at a point where the nerve pain is ridiculous and I question how much more can I do. How much more do I even want to do? Adding the lack of sleep I have been getting, it has just become frustratingly awful. I need to remind myself that there are people worse of than me, not many, but some. I'll let you know how the new suggestions work out and again, THANKS!

I can't type much, but 2 things.

Humira will be my 10th biologic and while they aren't fun they help any autoimmune issue unless you're me apparently lol. Let me know if you want to talk about it in detail. 6 years of experience with shots.

I've been on suboxone for 1.5 years, I do NOT recommend it. If you have breakthrough pain, tough tacos. You can't add an opiate. I'm maxed on celebrex, suboxone, and at 50mg of prednisone right now. My only add to med is ritalin and only a handful of people believe me that it works wonders on pain, and fibro fog. If I had known that the dr was giving me suboxone I would have refused as my choice to get off opiates was for practical purposes not abuse. Please be careful with suboxone. It does help my pain, but only so much.
I strive for a 5 on the pain scale, at that level I can do a couple things a day. Right now I'm at 7-8 all day everyday except for the 2 hour RA wake up window and that's a solid 9. Suboxone is a miracle for addiction treatment, but pain management cure-all it is not.
Hope everyone is doing well. Xoxo

5280lady- re sleep help- One if the best things you can do is RITUALIZE a routine for sleep preparation - it can be a hot bath or shower- or a heating pad session - but do not watch tv it read in your bed. Don't of anything in your bed.but sleep-- That type of conditioning helps tremendously - and has been recommended by the top sleep studies for decades .

Chronic pain does make it harder- especially if you have nerve pain- trying to find that comfortable position - gritting your teeth iif one of those "waves" hits you - lol---- I don't think too many people realize how exhausting chronic pain is and how hard it is to motivate yourself to function every day to do normal things that many people take for granted. Especially if you are going thru an intense. Acute phase- bracing yourself to get up off the couch or bed - then loping like Quasimodo for10-20 minutes until your stretched out enough to walk with a slightly better gate- (but I still look like a gimp)-- You get so tired and worn out so easily - maybe one little chore at a time- then back to the couch for a break with a big sigh of relief til you can get yourself up again ---

Those of us that have made the sacrifices necessary to utilize pain meds to help function just a little but better every day. - I cherish that little but of relief it provides to make things more manageable - enable me to do One chore and one errand -- lol ! And it is a sacrifice- you lose a lot of your freedom because you have to plan your life a month out every month -- so long term travel is out if the question -- as are so many other things ...


I've written enough about my feelings on this topic - but fully understand the frustration when it seems like so many factors are fighting you and compromising access to the only thing that works - the only thing that can give you a little bit of your life back ...

Savannah,
U r so right "Dr Rock" is a wonderful doc! I've listed him many times! He certainly is fighting for those of us who have been battling issues for many years, he's the real deal! Colorado Pain Relief also a great group all are educated and also specialize in specific areas! I especially like Dr Primack! He's a great gate keeper for referring u to other doc's if needed!

Before I didn't have insurance and had to go thru the county, some sort of Medicaid, I guess. They wouldn't pay for any pain meds, I had to pay those out of pocket and it was hundreds of dollars. They also had a program called Aid to the Needy and Disabled, which gave me 1 hundred dollars per month toward my meds. But you have to be careful with that program, cause sometimes they want all the money paid back to them. Have you talked to anyone in Social Services about getting help?

Rainbow, Did u try Dr Navarkal? He's very kind! I know he takes Medicare! I've been going to CPR the costs r hard as I'm on medicaid as well but the difference of paying less for my meds makes up for the difference! I used to have to pay $800 for my meds alone! Give him a call, they also may know of someone who takes it!

I had a doctor who wrote all the medicine I have been on for Lupus and another condition PTSD. I went to the colorado pain place off cherry st. and saw a dr. navarkal and he actually told me I could call him if I needed him and gave me his personal number. might want to try him..hear he's very sympathetic. I hate my life, and he said if I wanted to talk to call him. isn't that sweet? he and his gf having issues he said, so don't want to make his probs worse.hope this helps Savi

ColoSusie-I've looked up and seen something's that may help! Xerosis Cutis is basically a fancy term for dry skin! The psoriasis is basically an over growth of skin cells, creating thickening and scab type areas! Some non-medical things u can try r Coconut Oil, this will help the Cutis, keeping your skin moist! For the psoriasis, increase intake of vit d, steroid creams and salcylic acid or aspirin, helps potentate these med! There r also shampoo's with this in it if it's attacking your scalp! The psoriasis can b caused or a flare up through stress, a recent infection and the cold weather itself! The newer meds r very effective, u just need to make sure there r no issues with the other meds u r taking! Paib meds r known to dry everything up, including your mouth, so they can b adding to the issue! U can try the non-medicine approach with using the coconut oil, steroid creams and aspirin, it depends on how bad your symptoms are and how they affect your life whether u want to go the medicine route or not! I hope this helps! There's old wives tales of keeping to white meats and veggies this will also help and I wouldn't count on these without other treatment! If it affects your scalp, Head and Shoulders makes a shampoo that has tar in it, it actually smells good and works surprisingly well to help with flare ups and keeps them away! Again, I hope this helps u! No doubt this is miserable especially with your other issues! Take good care my friend!
