  • Need advice

    Hey everyone I am new here and I have had the implant twice the first time my Dr took it out. The second time I have had it in for a year and nothing but pain. I have told my Dr about it and the nurses said its normal to have smoke discomfort but it still is bad. I have an appointment on the 4th to see him. He referred me to a pain management Dr. That won't help me she prescribes me medicine I can not afford and I pass the drug tests with no problem and I don't know how to bring it up to him with out it should like I am Dr shopping ! Or that I want it taken out because it hasn't helped just causes more pain and I have been having a bunch of flare ups an nothing helps with the pain any advice.

    "Some pain" may be acceptable, but you are telling the medical staff that your pain is bad and they don't seem to be listening to you. You have every right to "Dr shop". It took me 5 years and multiple doctors to get diagnosed. Be very persistent. Whenever I visit a doctor these days, I write down everything I want to discuss in advance. This was a suggestion of my brother (doctor) as sometimes we forget things. Your current regime doesn't seem to be working. I would be looking elsewhere.
    Elmiron 2 x 100mg daily for IC
    Relpax 40mg as needed for migraine
    Vitamin D - 1 tablet per day
    Vitamin B - 1 tablet per day
    Iron/Vitamin C Tab - As needed, usually during my period.

    Previous Medications:
    Topamax - 2 x 50mg daily (migraine)

      Yeah my neurologist and I has tried everything and nothing seeks to help which is why he sent me to her and she is rude and even the nurses don't listen to me. I have a 2 year old that needs me but sometimes I am in so much pain I can't get out of bed.

        If your doctor is prescribing a medication that is expensive, it's okay to say that you don't have the money --- they may even have samples to give to you.
