I have rheumatoid and osteo arthritis, fibromyalgia, hypothyroid and obviously, chronic pain. I lost my job and insurance this past January and have recently received medicaid. I was on 30mg morphene sulfate timed release with (4) 15mg breakthrough per day, and Humira. My GP has me on .225 mg of synthroid which is WAY too high and I have constant, severe hot flashes. I CAN NOT find a rheumatologist, endocrinologist or pain management specialist that will accept medicaid, and due to my loss of income, even though I am still currently receiving unemployment, I cannot afford to lay out these expenses and bill medicaid. Considering the current politics that cut doctor's fees so low that most dropped out, as well as all the drug abusers in Florida, I understand why, but what am I supposed to do? I am in such severe pain I can barely walk; I have unbelievable sharp pains in my knees and hips, and every joint in my body is on fire. I'm only 43, and my kids are 5 and 6. I can not function like this. I went to the emergency room today upon the advice of a medicaid employee, and they not only gave me nothing, they could not help me find doctors. I feel so discouraged and depressed. I MUST be there for my kids; I don't want to spend one more second telling my children mommy hurts today honey, I can't play. Can anyone help? Any suggestions?
