I'm trying to see if I have a patient neglect case. I told my pain doc, the trigger point injections aren't working and I'm still in pain. He refuses to prescribe anything and can't see me for a few days so essentially I'm left out in the cold to suffer. There has got to be laws protecting patients from this tomfoolery. I'm waiting on phone calls to see if I have anything. Will report back and in the meantime was wondering if anybody has ever had to lawyer up and how did things go.

 

Mods hopefully this is in the right section, if not please move it.

Thanks. I really hope I have something here. I have voice recordings of me and the nurse specifically saying doc won't prescribe anything and me telling her how much pain I am in. You guys keep your fingers crossed!

Aren't there any patient advocates in your town that could help? Just my shitty two cents.

You know I'm beginning to wonder if the trigger point injections made me worse. The pain does feel worse and like you it's ruined my life. I was at work today and probably did 3 hours worth of work in an 8 hour work day because I was having trouble sitting up. I wish pain people could unite and have some sort of law passed. What state are you in? PM if you'd like.

I really haven't checked. I thought I would find some allies here in my area but so far no luck. But you certainly may have pointed me in a good direction. I'll see what I can find. Thanks

Tried the patient advocay group. The woman basically told me to go search around for a good doctor and tell them I didn't want to live like this forever. She also told me women who are in pain management aren't really taken seriously and that she has no faith in pain management doctors as they simply want to give you the most expensive injection just to fatten their pockets. She basically told me stuff I already knew. She did say if I continued to have bad service to simply call her back..............seems like nobody wants to help.

All the friggin doctors in this country are afraid to prescribe opiates cause of all the media hype. You got medical records for shits sake. Ask this women if the pain patient was her or her mother or daughter. Would she have such a cavalier attitude then?

I completely agree HB. It's disgusting and hard to believe sometimes.

I get trigger point injections every month for the past year, usually 7 or 8 at a time in my neck, but she also gives me 120 of the 10 mg. Hydros a month. I am also limited to 4 hours a day at work because the arm motion makes it worse. Got another MRI scheduled for end of the month. Last visit she also put me on 800 mg. Ibuprofen, 3 times a day.
