I suffer with Chronic pain due to Bulging Discs, Nerve Pain, Knee Pain and Arthritis. I was on Oxycontin for some time with NO addiction or dependence issues however I was referred to a pain specialist who took me off the Opioid medicine and put me on Methadone.
I had issues with the Pain Specialist and was on the methadone for some time however I still had to be under a Pain Specialist to continue this medicine. The new pain specialist that I said that I was going to be taken off the methadone and given nothing for my pain.
1 month later I was off the methadone and back on Tramadol which is not helping with the pain. So what do you do when you have pain specialists, doctors and governments who are paranoid about Opioid medicine because Addicts are stealing and abusing this medicine and Chronic Pain sufferers such as myself are left to deal with our pain in a measure of excruciating circumstances?.
