My pain management doctor discharged me for violating the narcotics contract. He wasn't specific, but I ran out of meds a couple times during my time as a patient with him. I have fibromyalgia, and other degenerative bone and muscle conditions. I have been on the same level of medications for the past 6 years--recently the pain has become worse and the meds are not working as they used to. I try not to over medicate myself, but sometimes it is unbearable. I talked to him about changing the dosage, but he didn't want to. So I just try and tolerate the pain. However I work--not on disability and sometimes I have to take meds in the morning to make it through the work day. I came up negative on a urine test, so he discharged me. Now I have no medicine and approaching withdrawals.
