I am a chronic pain paitent. My doctor curently prescribes percocet for me. I have degenerative disk disease, 2 herniated disks and 3 pinched nerves. He wants to send me to pain management and I want to go but I don't have insurance. I am on the waiting list for a state insurance so I will have it eventually. My boyfriend of 5 years who just passed away and was in a wheelchair was also giving me methadone for the pain. I was taking 30 mg a day. I take 10 mg a day of the percocet. Should I level with my doctor about the methadone and ask him if he will prescribe it for me? I have been going to him for years but am afraid to tell him about it. I also don't want to go through methadone withdrawl. Any advice would be appreciated.
