... several health issues (too many too mention). About 4 months ago a tv feel on the back of my neck & left shoulderblade. I was in severe pain & was having trouble turning my neck & also using my left arm & leg, so I went to the ER, they did X-Rays & gave me an injection of dilaudid for the pain! told me that there wad no break of dislocation of the shoulder blade or neck. Then I was sent home with a prescription of vicodin 500mg (3 days supply) for pain. To make a long story short, I went back to the ER 2-3 days later gave me an injection of valium (to relax my neck muscles). Went to my PCP the following Monday he told me I need to see a specialist, I do not have health insurance or any income. In Jan. 2013 I filed for SSI/Disability, I know it can take years for a decision to be made... I know I need a specialist, but I can't afford one!!
Seeing a specialist is cheaper than going to the ER. Many of them will help you to work out payments and many give discounts to cash paying patients who do not have insurance.
