I am so upset with the way i was treated at our ER last night...I went their with severe pain from arthritis, ruptured disc L4 & L5. Nurses were ok and helpful but the doctor acted as if I were some kind of FAT SLOB THAT WOULD NOT HAVE PROBLEMS IF I WOULD LOSE WEIGHT !!! after an hour in pain i did receive 3 shots...(let me inform you that i am a retired pharmacy tech, so i do know a little about meds) demerol, toradol, decadron. after about 30 minutes nothing had changed and still in pain. The doctor (per his nurse) gave me my walking (Ha Ha) papers with scripts...let me say I already take.. vicodin Skelaxin 800 mg 3 times a day...which i sometimes take more...of course i did last night. Anyway, the scripts were for ULTRAM & FLEXERIL...right away because of other meds I can not take ultram with my effexor....The Doctor should know that he has my chart if he bothered to look at it....The nurse let the doctor know and he told me that to take my vicodin and flexeril with my skelaxin. Well, that would just KILL me...with an overdose....So I proceeded to tell him that I can not take it with all the other meds....At that point he told me to make an appointment with my Primary Physican....In my chart and also told the doctor that I go to Pain Mgmt...As some of you might know that is the only Doctor who you MUST DEAL WITH when in this sad position... I came to the conclusion that this Doctor did not want to be bothered with me. I guess i will know better next time...
