... I found one very near me that had an appointment today, but they don't take Medicare. None of them seem to take Medicare, according to my research. I have both spinal and headache (including migraine) issues. I just moved here and am having trouble finding a doctor. My previous one was prescribing Oxycodone, which worked well in conjunction with acupuncture, yoga, Pilates and chiropractic care. The medication is a necessary part of this regime, so, as sympathetic as I am to doctor's DEA issues, I don't want any bull about not prescribing it. A few weeks ago my pain was so bad I went to Urgent Care. I told the doctor what I had been taking, and that I'd been out of it for a while, but he said he doesn't prescribe "narcotics" and wrote a prescription for Fiorcet instead. That helped, but also put me to sleep, and it's not practical to sleep all day when the pain is debilitating. Oxycodone and hydrocodone have both worked well for me with no side effects. If anyone can refer me to a doctor in Cincinnati, I would be most grateful. I need one who takes Medicare or at least could work with me on a payment plan. Thank you!
I'm really sorry for what you are going through. I'm in the same situation when we move.
I don't think you will get any responses because it is not policy here to give referrals.
I hope I'm wrong.
I have chronic insomnia as a result of chronic pain. They don't seem to understand how the two are connected. It's like being in the end stage of labor and they tell you to meditate and go to sleep!
My best combo now is trazodone 100mg and Ambien 10mg.
I had a constant headache 24/7 for years. A nurse mentioned an old drug... Imitrex which took my headache within 20min. Now I only need it 2-3 x a month.
As far as the oxys go, you are going to have a problem. Soome Primaries won't even take you on as a patient.
I would ask your old prescriber if he knows at physicians in that area,
You may want to ask him if he will talk with your new doc to vouch for your need and your compliance in being a ”good” patient.
I think the pain centers lack the empathy and treat you as a drug-seeker first.
If you can get a local doctor that is wIlling, you may get better results.
PS... You may try medical marijuana if it's available in Ohio.
