GRANDMA PAT Says:


I have been in pain management for years, lost my doctor along with other patients, and primary won't fill or says she can't and messes up my progress to get in new pain management in time. Now I'm losing Soma, was 3 times a day, now I have 7 tabs left. Was on 45 mg of morphine 3 times, oxycodone 15s and xanax 5 mg 3 times a day. Which she said she can not write for. Why, if she knew or thought this pain clinic was prescribing more than standard, did she never say a word until i had to go to her in desperation for this? Your primary that has to refer you and get info to get into a new pain clinic, I have very serious health issues no one is dealing with, I feel alone and suicidal. I even told my doctor and the old pain clinic staff that left, and not a bit of help, yet they know i have a history of heart failure, bleeds in brain from pain issues. No one cares, our country is falling apart and i asked again today for something for bp and high pulse, got nothing for it but a nurse, they did not send in the info two times that could have had me in pain management by now, and in having the colostomy i had to postpone since I wont do it with out pain mgmt on board.

Today they cut me back more 1 soma for a few days then no more, oxycodone 10mg 3 times to be cut on mon again and morphine cut from 45 3 x to 3o 2 times. All i can do is cry and sleep then cry more then no food, not drinking, feel horrible, and have lost desire to live and fight. These doctors put all on others and not one seems to care or no what to do with all of us real pain patients. I just want to die at this point for i am so tired of suffering and its only going to get worse. I feel so bad for all of the posts i have seen and know im not alone. All i see is the same four walls every day, go no where and before i felt i had some reason to fight and live to fight cancer and even cancer doc can not help get you in pain mang. They said today it will take at least 8 weeks to get in and ill be dead then or out of meds in a stroke etc. That is my biggest fear. Have had 3 bleeds in brain from this and pain is no joke.

The nurse said today we all are paying for those that dr shop and are addicted and i said i thought even addiction is a matter that needs treatment. They counted my tabs. I take drugs panels, did nothing wrong and most of my pain is caused from docs that did botched surgeries and cancer and injury from accident. I dont no what we all can do or if there is hope but it does not do good to ask on this site if someone knows where to get meds. Its not just docs its insurances companies and pharmacies. It's all getting way too much and hard for even a well person to figure out. I am ready to go home to my maker and wish he would take me soon. I am so tired of the lack of proper dr care in our country and its so sad i feel and pray for you all i want to know who is going to be responsible when i die or end up in a stroke due to this. Xanax withdrawals will be the worst too for i had them before for you can not sleep to escape the torture and they only get worse with time unlike opiates most docs dont seem to know this. I guess i have heart rate of 139 now and bp 200 over 133.

This is an older post but back in the day that was the pm recipe... Long-acting and short acting Soma and Anti-anxiety...those days gone. U can still get pain med for legit need... Long-acting and short acting and any muscle relax and just not Soma and maybe if you're lucky I handful of any anxiety meds ... But if I'm not mistaken previously soma was not even a scheduled medication now I think it's a three... But now pain doctors prescribing psychiatrist prescribed psychiatric ...drs not supposed to let patients play doctor or pharmacist regarding what works best for them or what they've been on for years it may not be the right recipe but you just believe it is ...hopefully the reduction will stave off cold turkey wd but u need to see it as a blessing in disguise...i use to love soma... And had a similar recipe but I don't now and I'm thankful for it much more energy taking some also clouded the hypothyroid diagnosis everyone including myself thought it was the soma slurring my speech and making me fatigued was actually hypothyroidism!! Decide what is most important to you being able to get pain medication for pain or Dr. shopping to get your "recipe" filled which you will never find again by the way and one doctor and the pharmacy might look at you cockeyed if using 3 drs to get all those meds!

This post is all of those who take pain medication..I had to go to a pain clinic for my chronic condition and the experience was horrible..I changed pain management doctors due to the way I was treated and just returned from my visit...leaving in tears and feeling like killing myself because I told him my pain is unbearable in the swinter and at its best in the summer, falls and springs are mixed., when we have bad storms I don't do very well...I was told I need an implanted device and they could have me 100% pain free all the time...I am not open to such a device and this new doctor was very rude! I guess this is where it's gonna go these days...I am very upset that we are being treated like drug addicts...I want to end my life because I'm tired... I'm 54 and have been dealing with Chonic pain since age 11..they have left us all with very little options and have no sympathy or compassion for us...I don't want to fight argue or try to convince anyone anymore about my condition... it's only going to get worse good luck to all.

Do your research but Oxymorophone I heard controls pain well, however can make you more sleepy then ocycodone. I swich my pain meds up quite a lot to help pain more.

I know the doctors I go to do not prescribe somas anymore, I know in my case it definitely is a blessing in disguise. Somas for me were too easy to abuse, and mixing with alcohol became a very dangerous cocktail. It numbed everything, pain, feelings, emotions, but definitely very addictive for me. I am glad the decision was made and enforced because I do believe they would have killed me.

I have been on every medication there is including everything you just listed your on & thinking about changing to & I promise you will regret changing! Hydromorphone has a maximum availability of 3-4 hrs per IR tablet of all and the ERs are 8-10 hrs max. Then you only get somewhere around 10% of the actual pain ingredient, you can look up every medicines detailed specs by just googling it's name. Everybody is different but the majority of people will agree that you should stay where your at on the meds. Hope this helps. And you never have to have your meds taken away like I did, I moved from Cali to Mississippi & down here they don't even give terminally ill peoe he of what you get! I have MRIs, and every test you can imagine proving my medical conditions & they just want to give me 3 norcos a day with 15 mg of morphine at EVERY doc office within 100 me's of Biloxi. I'm moving back to Cali & having to relocate my 3 children who have lived here there entire lives because I can barely get out of bed every day.

I hate to break it to you but, our country is killing the middle class and older people along with the sick. You're going to need to find someplace for euthanasia. Your medications are done. That, or you will have to go on the streets. That's what Obama wants you to do.

SHAE: Agreed. Any doctor who would take you off those three things at the same time should be completely sued for malpractice. And the benzo withdrawal (xanax) can actually kill you. That is a completely irresponsible thing to do. I would find another doctor, and report the first one.

That's right! They are cutting people off entirely! Obama wanted it. Kill off the sick and poor. Suicides have quadrupled. It's like being in Nazi Germany.

I took opioids for 25 years for chronic pain, then lost my doctor. I got through withdrawals using kratom. I take it twice a day and am mostly pain free.

Sued? Reporting to board more realistic....u can be "right" about anyrhing but if there is not a golden path lined with $$ to pay filing fees/costs ( not even talking attorneys fees !!) that garuanteed leads to the garuanteed malpractice insurance pay out---no attorrney is going to "front" those costs Plus their time & office personnel & supplies for ur case!

If u have tons of $ for those things then u can put down a big retainer & maybe a newbie atty will waste his/her time...
I'm not being judgmental I'm being totally serious ! It's not whether you're right or wrong it's whether you can afford access to legal system!

I have used Kratom too, it does help but there are so many different strains and at least for me I had to try different ones, it is a guessing game, where I order it they do not give any medical advice, I think I am going to go ahead and start trying to find a good quality product, as we all know, our days of getting our pain meds are numbered,

CHRISSY: I said "should be sued"...I never said it would be possible to do such a thing. If you would actually read what I wrote, I said the thing that I WOULD DO is to report them. Calm down already.

Not "uncalm"...& i did read, said "should be sued"...you may have intended it as a figure of speech but a lot of people actually think that they really can sue over just about anything ... I agree with you on the should be Sued on many of these things !!! Sadly it has become just a figure of speech !

The days of pain medication are numbered. A lot of people will turn to other means that are cheaper and more readily available. But, illicit drugs can have additives that kill people. But that's what the government wants.
