My Doctor suddently stopped my pain meds, what do I do?
Hi, I have severe chronic pain. Lupus (which attacks the joints), severe fibromyaligia, knee arthritis, neuromas(pinched nerves) in both feet, arthritis in my back and more. I can’t function normally without pain meds. He has been prescribed vicodin for five years, no problem. Suddenly his brother joins his practice and brings along his nurse from hell. She rudely calls me and says, “you obviously have a drug problem, you need to go to pain management.” I was shocked. Somethings happened and I’m at a loss. I have no medical insurance to pay for pain management! They want 380.00 just for a consultation!. So, now i don’t know what to do. It would eat least be easier if he would taper my dose down until I figure out what to do but no, he just completely cut me off without warning. So, what can I do? please help!
