I hate seeing patients like you penalized for this ■■■■■■■■, manufactured “opioid crisis” that people are carrying on about. When did drug addicts become such a priority?
It’s not like they’re brand new. Hell, injured soldiers in the Civil War were getting hooked on morphine.
I’m sorry you’re in the level of pain you have. I can relate.
Until about December, I was stuck at times with the most debilitating migraines. A neurologist referral didn’t go very well, nor did the preventives or blood vessel constrictors she prescribed.
After two E R visits for dehydration caused by vomiting, where you get the treatments by I V line, I got another neuro. The new preventive works great!
The catch? Once it stops kicking you in the gut, it’s associated with an increase in appetite and weight gain. I even find cooking kind of fun now, but that’s another story.
Anyway, I understand your frustration. The second E R trip, I was about ready to be substituted for another condemned inmate someplace like Texas. It’s pretty much like the lethal injection, the E R treatment, only difference being after I sleep off the pain, unlike the inmate, I’m released from that guerney hung over, but alive.
