i am so angry that my pain managemtn dr decided that they were going to refer me to someone else. no prob with that EXCEPT she is weaning me off my fentanyl patch BEFORE i get an appt iwth the other, second it is over 70 miles away and i dont know if i can take the drive. I woke up at 3 am in extreme pain. I had gone to bed at 12 am. I hurt so bad i could scream. I am doing my best to keep as calm as i can because i know it wont help the pain. it pisses me off that i am being refered to someone else to deal with my pain because i dont need any procedures i.e. injections and such. it is all about money to them !they stopped my methadone (for pain), they are taking my fentanyl from 50mcg every 2 days to two 12mcg every 2 days for 8 days, than 1 12mcg for 8 days. this is ****** wrong@ i made an appt with my pcp for tuesday, i am hoping she knows anyone who deals with fibro etc patients. we did find a reumy (sp) about 12 miles away i need a referal first.
