Well they called me from rehab and let me know that my insurance would not pay for a stand alone facility and that I would have to check in to a regular hospital close to me. That's a problem because there is not a hospital in my area that does drug detox... So I took 3 more 10/650's, called in for work and now have to start figuring another way. I have tried several times by myself, but the insomnia, cold sweats, nasty taste and smell and the feeling of impending death have overcome me each time, the same symptoms that I know a lot of you have made it through. Sometimes I can't tell if my chest pain is from my high blood pressure, CAD (50% blockage to right coronary artery) or just symptoms of the withdrawls so I get scared take another xanax and a few hydros and it all seems to get better, but I know it is actually getting worse. What is really scary is that I really do have back pain and have had 3 neurosurgeons that have told me they would not even touch it, because it is beyond their capability. The one with the expertise to do it (located in Memphis, TN) does not take my insurance BC/BS of arkansas and I just got word from another in Little Rock, AR that he will not attempt it either. I believe I am ready to say the **** with the surgery and just learn to deal with the pain if I can get myself detoxed....
