I have PsA and somedays are worse than other- I have an AWESOME rheumatologist BUT she is leary prescribing narcotics because she says the DEA will be up her butt in a heartbeat due to the fact she is not a pain specialist, so I am stuck and feel like really as hard as I work and have been paying into the system [working since I was 14 with 2 and 3 jobs] and I can't get treated appropriately- this is SUCH BS- I need help please from anyone out there.
It is BS. We all have that problem. She could order something until you can see the pain dr. Its when they order long term that it becomes a problem. We are over a million strong and we all have to make noise about how we are being treated. Society doesn't have a clue. They are brainwashed by the media to think that only drug addicts take narcotics and drs who prescribe them are drug pushers. Don't forget that drug pushers loose all their assets go to the dea. Busting a dr can be very lucrative for them.
Welcome to the world of the screwed pain patient. Sorry to admit that, but it's only gonna get worse form here. Thanks to the dealers and patients who sell their scripts, DEA is indeed intimidating Doctors. They can't stop the street sales so they're screwing us. The new mantra; "The war on drugs is a war on us." Hope you luck out.
