. is detoxing me off of all of my pain medications despite the fact that I have not had much improvement. I did their physical therapy and took the shots they just didn't work. I am o.k. with them taking me off of the morphine. I started with 100 mg ER and am now down to 30 mg ER, but there are days that I am going to have to have something because when it does come on it comes on bad, like being operated on without anesthesia. I don't understand what is going on, it is like since I went through their protocol and it didn't work then I must be lying and addicted to my meds. I have never mistook my meds. The other thing is that I do suffer from Fibromyalgia (2nd) and Chronic Myofascial Pain (1st) The only medication that gives me the best relief and helps me sleep are the Soma's, but since I have told this to the physician he now thinks I am addicted to them. He said they are not supposed to be used for sleep, but sleeping pills do not work so what am I to do? He gives me 45 per month and all I have ever asked for was 60 he gives me 90 of the 500 mg vicodin and all I have asked for and what I used to be on was Vicaprofen that contains 7.5.vicodin and 200 mg ibuprofen, they work so much better and without stomach upset. I have never asked for an increase in my morphine or complained each time he reduced it, but now he is sending me off to someone to detox me when I am not ready to be detoxed. Well I guess I am, I just don't want to be stark naked when the pain comes. I am generally full of pain/anxiety and sleep depravation 2 weeks out of the month. Any comments would be greatly appreciated P.S. switching docs is not as easy as you would think. It took me 9 long months to get this guy to take me and I am being turned down from other pain clinics without any response as to why. Once again, I do not abuse my meds nor sell them.
I take soma's for sleep. They work great. I dont wake up drowsy. After I take one about 30 mins later I'm asleep. Im sorry your going through that. Ive been there done that. Because there are so many people out there that do abuse drugs it makes it complicated for people like you who really need the medications. It is really hard to switch doctors. So you can't get into any pain management clinics? There are clinics out there for people like you that get you on the right track for medicines. They make you take a drug test to make sure your taking your meds and that you are taking only whats prescribed. Thats how they know you not selling them. They make you bring your bottle's of medicine in so they can cant them to prove your not taking more of them. Keep looking, you might have to drive a little ways but when it comes down to pain being the issue its worth the drive. I have to drive over an hour away to see my doctor. Hope it all works out for you.
Dearest mfdfibro; I really don't know to do but i've got to say something. I just finished a 1& 1/2 hr full page post to you re things we all could do if we all could just stop our damn whining and get together. I even had a name for it... "WE WHO HURT"! THEY shut me and my ideas down! THEY took the whole page, scrambled it, and then deleted it. this is the 5th time at least that this has happened when I tried to offer helpful ideas. That's enough. They got my attention. Their will be no more posts from Sacosam. THEY, finally got my attention... and THEY can shove their points...
These doctors nowadays will give you motrin 800 wtf is up with that,my good friend who had major back surgery got 1 script of Percocet 10mg and 1 refill and when he went back to the doctor ,the guy was like your tryin to smash an ant with a sledgehammer.I can see he is always in pain as he cant stand up for more then 30 minutes at a time.These doctors will hand out benzos like candy but when it comes to pain meds you better have all your paperwork,MRI's,etc or your not going to get anything at all.My other friend who has a pain problem was getting 30mg Roxicodone then the doctor stopped his script out of the blue no taper or anything,so he found a connection for methadone 10mg pills,and unfortunately alot of people go to for illegal drugs such as heroin cause the doc stopped their meds with no taper,happened to my brother.
