Help! In Lots of Pain here

My doctor just yesterday dismissed my as his patient.  I have been his patient for chronic back pain and and lot of other pain related things.  I have been on Percocet, Soma, Xanax, Tramadol and just last month he started me on MS Contin .  I have been on the medications for over 2 years and now I have nothing (zero) meds for pain.  I don't know what to do.  I don't know of any clinics or doctors around here that with prescribe the meds I need just to live a normal life.  I don't have insurance and I supposed to start a full time job this month on the 16th.  I am desperate to find a doctor that will let me self pay but I cant pay a fortune for an office visit.  I live in Deltona, Fl but I can drive to Sanford, Longwod, Lake Mary, Orange City, Deland, etc.  Please, does anyone know of anyone around here that I can go to??????  Desperate!!

Did he give you a reason, could it be he is just wanting you to go to pain management? Where I live the doctors can only write pain meds for so many months before they refer you to pain management, even after my back fusion, knowing I was going to needs meds for at least 6 months, after 3 I was referred back to pain management. So sorry, and I wish you the best.

Sorry you're in so much pain.  I have heard that often when patients take pain-meds for long periods of time, they become ineffective or in some cases - can cause pain.  

Gizmo gives great advice.  One other thing you might consider is contacting your local Mental Health Association since you are taking both pain and anxiety medications.  Perhaps they can help you find a physician who can help.
