I have chronic pain. I was diagnosed with several types of Ehlor's Danlos Syndrome 12 years ago. I have been on 25mcg of fentanyl for 2 months, recently my doctor made a mistake and called in 12.5 mcg instead, now after correcting her mistake, all the pharmacies seem to be out of the 25mcg patches. so now I am currently OUT of fentanyl, and called doc several times to remedy this to no effect. I am starting to feel withdrawl symptoms and I am #1 Terrified and #2 dont know what to do? Do i go to the ER? and if so how can they help me for more than just a visit if i have no access to my prescription?
The other issue is the fentanyl patch only helps a little bit. Is there an alternative? like a pain pump?
