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!!!!!

Hello. I'm posting on behalf of my husband. He has been diagnosed a year ago with spondylolysthesis, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease in his lower back. He has MRI and x-ray from November 2013. He has done chiro, physical therapy, acupuncture and massage, and was advised to live with the pain rather than get surgery. Hasn't done much with doctors since March 2014 because he hates them. Honestly hates the thought of taking pain killers but has decided to give them a shot because he is in so much pain he hasn't worked in a year and he often feels down about it and cries. Just had our first daughter and he can't care for her because of pain. He wants to kill himself but I have convinced him to try pain meds. He is very unstable. I need a doctor who won't waste our time and money.

We have Medicaid but willing to dish out cash if need be. I have tried to read back for doctors names but there seems to be confusion about who is accepting patients...? Would like to try injections and meds if possible without a referral. He is fed up with pcps because they are all incompetent and immediately assume he is a drug abuser because he is 25 and has immense back pain.

Need some relief for him before he does something stupid. Hydrocodone does nothing for him but he doesn't have rx record of anything stronger, so would a doctor even prescribe anything stronger? Honestly he has tried morphine finding it off the street because he was in so much pain and it was offered to him. It worked well, he only took it for a week though because he didn't want become dependent on it for his pain without a reliable rx source.

Also he uses marijuana edibles, they're about the only thing keeping him sane right now, but he has a red card so will that be an issue?

Names of doctors and or help answering these concerns would be very helpful, thanks.

Tammy, sorry to bother you, is there an way that I can get the name of the Dr you are going to. I've been on mehadone since I was 17yrs old. I was abducted when I was young. The jerk who did this was drunk and wouldn't let me out of the car. Long story short. I woke up in a hospital because he had crashed into a bldg leaving me a mess.Ive had surgeries every three yrs since to current. Im now 50! Through all this ive been on methadone for Many Many yrs. my Dr. Isn't going to perscribe methadone anymore because of the new laws etc.... He is still taking care of me, but just until I find a new Dr.. I don't want to inconvenience him anymore than I already have. I'm on 70mlgrms a day, I would just like someone that can help me. Thanks for your time. Sincerely, Kadine

I don't see where "Comment" made a racial comment. They were simply saying what they observed in their area....and frankly, it is fairly accurate. These illegals come here and use our resources for their issues and by abusing the system, they ruin it for everyone. Medical offices should start verifying immigration or resident alien status before they see any of these people. If they are illegal....call ICE!

Susie I'm sorry you are still struggling with your health issues. I can't seem to get my migraines under control either. Lets hope 2015 works out better for both of us.

Rainbow before I ever posted anything on here I read EVERY page. There are many Drs. listed, that's the whole purpose of this forum. You only tried to help, I don't know why someone wants to make it difficult for you but they need to go another forum and troll there and leave this one alone.

Rainbow, you know I'm not in the same area as you guys, but from what I've read that you posted, you haven't done anything wrong. I do wonder why they keep quizzing you about this forum. It could be exactly what Mtn said, people like Cookie. By the way, Cookie never got back with all these other names that she supposedly posted under and received no answer, so I'm thinking none of what was posted by Cookie was even true.
Now someone named "comment" is going to make racist remarks. Oh my goodness!! I'm not being crazy by thinking that it is one or two people who are using different names trying to stir up trouble.
These "stupid" people with their remarks about going to "expose" us. There isn't anything to "expose". If someone wants to call attention to the problems that all of us face getting medical care and our medications. Please do. In fact they are invited to visit the petition website and read about everyone's problems and what we go through.
There isn't anything wrong with trying to help someone find a doctor. As I explained before, my doctor is in a very small office and asked that we don't give out his name because the last time someone did, his office was overwhelmed by people from as far away as Colorado Springs (most of them not legit). He isn't accepting any new patients anyway. His office is totally booked up with no available space.
This forum is very helpful when people can provide at least a hint on a doctor. What I faced when looking for a doctor, was they wouldn't tell me anything about medication on the telephone, they all insisted that I spend the money for initial office visits. Which runs into lots of money while you are trying to find a doctor.

Hope everyone is doing well. I've been fighting one thing after another in addition to my normal illness. I can't seem to get passed all these additional health issues. I'm hoping that 2015 is going to be a better year with my health.

Why are people not allowed to take pain relievers? They should not be condemned for the way they feel..... Please prove, whether professionals no who is an addict? I am so tired of people thinking for what is best for me. I have just figured out why I have so much pain, it is not mental, but, physical. No, doctors please stop thinking for me, until you know my whole medical history. People really need to tell their life stories.

You have to be a mexican citizen to get pain meds in pueblo. Ive suffered for years with nothing while the people with fake limps use canes n walkers to fool the docs n get them with no probs, to later sell.

Hi Pamela - I think you will find that govt funded facilities like. VA hosp, county hosp pain clinics etcetc will have their patients using methadone for pain management more frequently because the cost of methadone tablets is MICROSCOPIC compared to other time released pills. About 10 years ago a few insurance companies caught on to the same idea . It's not effective for everybody but for some people it works just fine for baseline pain management -- . Before you leave Alabama try to time your refill so you have a full month supply when you arrive in colorado- and start calling for appts NOW. New patients appointments usually schedule about a month and a half out. Having hard copies if your medical reports , doctors notes and prescription RECIEPTS helps- but a letter of recommendation from your pain doctor in Alabama detailing the doseage amounts will help tremendously because you can forward these for the prospective doctors to review (some docs have a lengthy questionnaire for new patients ) BEFORE your appt. Many clinics will review your docs and let you know if they are willing to accept you .

Good luck

Pam... Please Google "pain management Colorado Springs".. The groups and drs that come up are all pretty equal choices. I would make some calls and ask if the dr would generally prescribe methadone if the patient has adequate records... You will quickly be able to weed out your choices. I don't know anyone that takes methadone... Sorry that I can't be more specific in regards to names, etc. Safe travels!
