I wrote the other day and Thank You Sandee for talking with me. I dealt with the withdraws from Percocet,Paxil,Xanax, and Lithium. I suspected My Dr. was on something. I went to him for help telling him I have been on same dosage of Percocet for years and it is not working anymore. He wanted me to get on Suboxone. I asked will it help with the pain. He said No it is for people getting off Pain Pills. I felt like he was saying I was an addict and didnt care otherwise, he sent me home saying he would not help me. I needed another Dr. This was Thurs by Monday Night. I was in so much pain and so sick. I could not even hold down water. I have never run out of meds before because I am very cautious even though they dont work the same because I am tolerant to dosage. I needed to go to the hospital but was to scared to be labeled again. I had noone to talk to and got on internet and found this site. Sandee helped me so much by talking to me. The next day my boyfriend was so scared because I was throwing everything up, My whole body was twitching, etc. He called the Dr adn said look it is against the law to turn her away for her meds. I cried and cried and screamed at him I dont want to go back to him I will lay here and die from these damn withdraws. I ended up going to Dr. He gave me my meds.
I discovered not only was he a recovering pain pill addict so was his son. I guess he lost his wife and was homeless at one point. So now he thinks because he stopped using pain pills everyone else has the same problem. He said he wanted me to be honest with him. I said I have been honest from the beginning and that was all I said. I held my tongue to get my meds. He said you have been on these meds too long and need to get off. Okay well he doesnt even know what is wrong with me. I have no problem getting off meds. When I am Fixed. I need a Dr that cares enough to give me answers about my medical condition. It took Dr 7 years to believe I was in pain. 2 years ago I underwent a Diagnostic Laparscopy. The Dr said he could not believe I was able to walk. That all my organs were binded together by scar tissue. Severe Pid something that could have been fixed with antibiotics if the many Dr's I went to believed me. Now I probably will never be able to have a baby again. One year after surgery I had to have another one to get rid of scar tissue. It is getting close to November and I am scare to death of this surgery because it hurts worse the week after they do it. Only to shortly relieve pain. I moved to Florida hoping the Dr's would be better here. NOT. I am still getting over withdraws and I have my meds now. I am still throwing up black stuff- which is probably blood in my stomach. I am searching for a good Pysciatrist, Pain Doctor, Back Doctor, and Gyn. I am trying to get on track now that my eBay has suffered- my house is a wreck and I should be on the phone finding Dr's. It just get old. Just wanted to Thanks Sandi for the talk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you lesnbek the community here is for help ,advice and support and I am so glad I was able to help you. It is so nice to hear that a member has received help and support here. I urge you to find yourself a better Dr. I am also very glad you did get your meds and your doing a little better. Please remember we are always here when you need us and know your in my thoughts. Have you thought about the clinic I told you about in Tampa? He is a very good Dr who will help you find the kind of treatments YOU want and will not let you live in pain and force treatments you don't want on you. I think you have a very good boyfriend that truly cares about you and that is very important to have that kind of support so if you have not thanked him perhaps you should.
I am so sorry you will not be able to have a baby but hey don't give up there are new procedures and treatments every day so please don't give up hope and there are so many children out there who need a wonderful person such as yourself that needs loving parents so that is always an option too when your ready. I know what you mean about the house being in total disarray I have the same problem from time to time and being a neat freak I have just had to learn to take it one day at a time and do things when I am able. Don't let it get you down because one things for sure it will always be there to tackle tomorrow.
Thank you so much for the post, it is great to hear you have helped someone even if only by being there to listen we all need that at some point. Your going to be fine just hang in there and keep up the good work! I am really flattered by your post, thank you lesnbek
Good luck and know I and the other members here are always here for you when you need us.
I absolutely advise you go to the ER now if you suspect your throwing up blood this is VERY SERIOUS and LIFE THREATING! Please let me know if you need anything at all!
Please get yourself checked out NOW!
Keep me posted and do take care of yourself, throwing up blood is really serious!
I really feel for you and wish you luck finding all your doctors. I cannot have children due to the 15 years that I spent sick and having surgeries for my female problems. I ended up after 30+ surgeries and countless treatments having to have a total hysterectomy. There is hope I want you to know that. No matter what happens you will get through this.
