Had a better visit with the doctor, although I am still on 1/4 of the pain meds I was on, and truly just wanted 1-2 pills extra per day for flares, weather, etc. She was willing when she first met me to give me same dose I am on now, plus 40 mg tid of oxycontin, but I did not have drug covereage, 600.00. But she keeps saying she has to protect her license. this is wrong. The pharmacists said, the doctors are protected, and there is no limit on pain, and I came in when I first met her was supposed to be on a higher dose, so I think/hope she will realize it is safe in a few months. She cancelled my pain clinic and wants no other doctor but her. So....she is then responsible. But I cannot take anything whatsoever that works on the serotonin mechanism. So no antidepressants, no savella, no effexor, no buspar. But she did put me back on Ativan and it helped the muscle spasms tremendously. She never speaks on the phone, mas dont pass to her anything but "hello", so I have to make an appt for every comment. So if it does not work, I will be right back in. I showed her the xmlv article?? spelling, and she was fascinated, as she had ordered an htlv-1 on me, and it is related. She wanted to know where to draw the blood, and I do not know, but one of the sites tells us..My pharmacy is becoming much more supportive, getting to know me, and I have not met them yet til I feel better but there is a local fibro group, just started about 30 people, that are going to meet for coffee Nov 1st.. And it is pretty close, not down in Portland. Thank youfor all your prayers for today, I know you all helped and you too Peg. I prayed for you too. raindrop
