So I've been on 180, 3 60s a day for 8 years. this December Samaritan health services has told my doctor he has to keep me under 120 a day if i don't go to pain management clinic. I don't have a car or insurance. is anyone else suffering from cut backs. they have now cut off moriphine and are just giving me the narcos. No slow down just a no more
This is due to the garbage that has come out with recommendations for narcotics. Supposedly we don't need more then they say. They don't take into account that people get a tolerance to narcs and need more. They also don't think we have pain, unless we look all crippled up. I don't understand what the health service is. Do you have medicaid? They would pay for the pain dr. How far would you have to go to see a pain dr? I know they are few and far between in some areas. I live in a place like that, but the one I go to is 16miles away and there is another one 16 miles in the other direction.
It's not just a problem with HMO's. It is an aggravating problem for all chronic pain sufferers because of our government deciding what pain is and how much and what kind of pain meds we need. I would venture to say that the majority of these folks making these decisions for the populace have NO clue what chronic pain is and how much we suffer, even WITH pain meds. We are all in the same boat as you.
Dear fear and loathing. In the US you can sign up for insurance through Obama care. Don't get confused by this. They may provide a high price tag, but what you pay is based upon what your taxes say. Therefore, if it is $250 it may be reduced to $25 per Month or less depending upon your actual income. Call and they will talk you through the process. Medications are covered and a whole lot of other things that will help. If not USA then you need to apply for whatever programs your country has regarding low income.
