I've never failed their drug tests,or no reason to stop with out warning. He referred me to a pain mangmt doc who tells me I'm not under contract an that he won't even help me come off them but keeps giving me injections and now is doing RFA injections. I'm startin to go threw with drawls,what should I do?
Can he? Absolutely, these days it's more a privilege to get meds than it is a need, which is unfortunate. This typically happens when the prescribing Dr doesn't feel or believe things are going the way THEY think they should. Contract? Not sure what you mean there. The original Dr should have allowed you 2 or 3 final refills to help you stop, although it takes much longer to get off the stuff correctly. Injections of what? That may be the help but you post doesn't specify what it was before the RFA.
This pain Doc should offer you some advice, but sounds as though he thinks he's helping you, based only on the info here that pain Doc is your only source for help/solution at this time. Still wonder what really caused the first Doc to cut you off. Best to you, hope this somehow helps.
You can google the Thomas Recipe or put it in the search menu above. It will help you get thru the withdrawals. Thr RFA ia an abalation of the nerves that are causing you the pain They burn them so they stop hurting, but that is not going to stop the withdrawals. Your regular doc had to stop giving them to you because of the new DEA regulations. Some of the new pain docs have stopped giving them out also because of these new regulations. If they don't, they can lose their license. You could try a differnet pain doctor, but you will have to sign a contract. Try to get thru the withdrawals & see if the RNA works for you. Sometimes it only works for a few months & you have to have it done again, but have heard of it working for a year at a time or longer. The problem is they burn the bad nerves, but they tend to grow back together eventually. Try the Thomas Recipe. It does call for a benzo I believe, & maybe your doctor, one of them will be understanding enough to give you a short script to help you thru this. I so feel for you...
