I've had chronic pain for fifteen years and been on many types of medications, opiate and non-opiate. When I changed insurance and couldn't see my regular doctor, I ran out of fentanyl patches and oxycodone. I had never abused my medication, but after going through a few days of horrible withdrawals, I became desperate and made the dumb mistake of trying H. That was three months ago and I'm too ashamed and embarrassed to attempt to try a new pain specialist.
I did go to a suboxone clinic for about a week, but the pain was too unbearable and I went back to the dope. I have really bad veins, plus I'm not good at inj's. so I have bad bruises and marks.
I want to get on legitimate pain meds, even methadone if that's all I can get. I can't go on like this anymore and I'm desperate for a doctor who won't be cruel and judgmental (I'm going enough of they myself).
Does anyone know of a doctor they would recommend? I also can't wait forever for an appointment which makes it challenging.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
