When you are in my position, you try anything. So here I go, for what it’s worth, can anyone in Cairns recommend a bulk billing doctor who can help me with Fibromyalgia who will prescribe the only thing that has worked so far, opiod based painkillers, without being an arsehole about it ? I have tried other drugs, which they all want to push on you instead of opiods, and they have not worked, they have left me writhing in agony and unable to sleep.
Today I thought I had found that doctor, he even says on his blog that he is an authorised or whatever opiod prescribing doctor, yet when I went there, showed him I had a current course that I have been regularly prescribed for the condition of fibromyalgia, he then comes out all anti opiate based pain relief, and to be honest, he shouldn’t be a doctor for any type of medical condition, he is arrogant, and didn’t even take my blood pressure, even though I am a new patient who has hypertension !!!
I am at a lose end here with this, I have 14 days of Tramadol left, and now am struggling to find a doctor who will actually let me have some semblance of quality of life. I really fucking hate this shit. Yes, I am angry and sweary, which isn’t helping my fibromyalgia at all, but when you are faced with the fact that in 14 days time, you will be in a position where you will be in complete agony, and nobody seems to want to help, you’d be sweary and angry too. I can’t afford to be floored completely by the pain, which will happen, I have a son to look after. I don’t understand why nobody seems to understand how bad this condition is. The agency responsible for disability pension doesn’t. Lot’s of doctors don’t. I really don’t know where to turn here. This is becoming a very real problem. Does anyone care ??
I just don’t know what to do. I guess I will end up at the emergency department of the local hospital in 2 weeks time, then what………..
