Hi all / New to boards /
I am looking for a doctor in the state of Va. that someone can recommend because I can't seem to find 1 here that will provide me the help I need. Once they find out what all I've been on over the past 7 yrs they don't want to touch me. I am dealing w/ back pain & have had 5 levels fused in lower back. My doctor now has had me on Norco now for 6 months & for the last 3 visits I've explained its not masking the pain & wanted to know if there was anyway he could write something that would last longer. He says he will not write me narcotics (??) I am not seeking anything other than a bit more time of relief & he won't write anything else.
Any help either w/ a recommendation of a doctor in Va. or maybe a way of gettting to him to understand my position w/out begging because thats not going to happen would be appreciated very much.
He keeps getting me to schedual the SI injections , Facet injections , nerve blocks & a bunch of other $$$ makers for him that cause me nothing but more pain longterm - I guess writing a new Rx won't make him any $$...
Now he's starting to talk about sending me back to the surgeon that sent me to him / so its time to find a new doctor.
I am sick of this game these doctors play
Has anyone had any luck w/ a family doctor writing what is needed w/out all the games?? I may try that route next if nothing else. The Norco 4x's a day is doing nothing for me at this point & I'm in bed 80% of the time because of the pain & this pain management "specialist" won't help me or my family...
Sorry for the rant I just would love to end this game & find a doctor that understood PAIN
