Katharine Says:

I have moderate to severe Degenerative Disc Disease of Cervical Spine with severe narrowing (stenosis) along with bulging and herniated discs with severe arthritis (osteo) also in cervical spine with boney spurs. I also have Fibromyalgia, Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome ad Chronic Fatigue. My pain management doc has done many different procedures, non giving much relief and no long term relief. She has told me there is nothing more she can do. So, I need a Primary Care Doctor who will take over writing my Morphine and Muscle Relaxer. My current Primary Care doctor said she trusted me totally but could not write RX for opiates. I need help. I will not be able to function without some pain meds. I live in Gen Allen, a Richmond, VA suburb. Please helpp. Thank you.

Hello, Katharine! Sorry that you're so miserable, it's terrible for anyone to have to suffer.

However, under the new regulations that were enacted this year, no PCP is going to be able to prescribe you opiates for long-term chronic pain. They have been severely restricted on what they can prescribed, how much they can prescribe, why they can prescribe it and for how long they can prescribe it.

In order to continue getting them you'll need to have them prescribed from a pain management specialist.

Learn more Morphine details here.

Is there a different pain management specialist that your PCP can refer you to?

Have been on opiates for 18 years for incredibly painful IBS and probably Chrons disease (it's been a while since I had a colonoscopy, but there is a Chrons blood panel now, and my number is off the charts). Have been seeing doc for 14 yrs-prescribes 240 30mg oxy and 6 10 mg methadone. But due to the incredible tolerance, it isn't even close to stopping pain.

Hello Mike....I have been also taking 30mgs of oxycodone (150/month) and 10 mgs methadone (150/month) - from my pain management dr. For the last 6 years. - However he just retired 2 months ago and I am now desperately needing to find me a new pain management Dr. - I live in the Richmond area and wanted to see if you would be able to forward me any Doctors names or info that you may know of that I might try to get in with? Thanks for your time and any help you may offer - And I hope that you can get your pain more controlled soon.

I just read your post about chronic pain. I am in Richmond VA, and I'm in serious need of a doctor willing to trust me and prescribe opiates. Did your post lead to any names of doctors from others? I am desperate.

Thanks so much for any help you can offer.
