I Hate The DEA.....I have had stenosis, ankling spondilytis, and scoliosis but to hear most doctors speak one would think I only had a mere boo boo. I have seen every pain specialist in a 50 mile range. I had a great one, but being my first one too, I didn't know not all pain doctors are the same. Boy did I make a mistake when I left the good one for the closer one. Now the good one won't take me back. I have tried as have other health professionals but no dice.
I have had this pain since almost 25 yrs. and am at my wits end. The good doctor had me on morphine and my new one thinks arthritis meds will be all I need. Where did he get his lisence. Since the DEA has gotten on such a tear, nobody will prescribe pain meds anymore. I have to say I see their point but of course disagree. I have even read where ppl in hospice are being denied pain meds. Now that is really going to far.
I have been to so many doctors, ortho, neuro, gp's pain management. Is there somewhere I have failed to try. Maybe I am just too depressed and not seeing the forest for the trees. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
