Please help! I am from Illinois and over the past year I have seen 10 different doctors for back and knee pain mainly due to the fact that i have not found a regular doctor I like and it is very frustrating. To make it easier on me I go to urgent cares whenever I am not feeling good and they always prescribe me vicodin for the temporarily pain relief. It is fast, convenient and easy. I am learing the consequences now. I am not an addict and truly take the medicine for pain. I recently made a dentist appointment and my dr. informed me that a letter went out and he asked me if I was okay and if I need help. I was very taken back by this. As I look back at my records I didn't realize over time how much the doctors and prescriptions can add up and can see where this would be considered a red flag. I am reading horror stories of being arrested and charged with dr. shopping and I am scared to death right now. Can someone please calm my nerves and tell me that I am overreacting? I plan to find one doctor and stick with him/her as I learned my lesson. Is this letter just a warning? I truly was not Dr. shopping.
