First, did you stop the xanax abruptly after taking regularly? That can cause seizures, so please be careful. Don't stop the morphine until you talk to the doctor so you don't have withdrawal from it too. You could ask the doctor about other opiates such as Dilaudid or Opana.
So you don't feel rushed with the busy doctor, how about write your concerns down and then use your list to discuss your issues with the doctor. You could also ask the pain doc to talk to the primary doc. That way they could come up with the best plan for you addressing the pain, the muscle spasms and the anxiety.
