Hi guys. You can this under my first post but I went to my doc and was completely honest just to be rejected. I told him the pain was so disabling that I could not sleep or eat, I'm falling asleep driving, cannot perform my work functions and just basically am living in hell. He offered no suggestions and would not change my med. You guys were right. When he heard the work "patch" (I wrote them down) he freaked. I think he is worried about the DEA. He is an infectious disease doc and they have been on him for what they call "overprescribing antibiotics" They are after many docs who treat Lyme disease and the other tick diseases for this but, just as with pain meds, it is necessary. The best is probably to go to my GP and get a recommendation for a pain specialist but since this disease that I have is so very rare I don't know if they will they will want to deal with it. Most don't want to deal with Lyme patients but its worth a try unless you guys have another idea. Thanks.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
