my wife has a number of chronic pain diagnosis. all bad enough to be put on to pain management. things such as, chronic fibromyalgia through out her whole body, lower spine issues, etc. there's a decent size list of these horridly painful conditions. (all of witch were diagnosed and were being treated. and were known to run thick in her family). she was put on Tramadol for 4 years. in those years she was attending college, had a job, and was doing over all really good. but then her doctor recommended her to a treatment facility. one that specify's in pain management. so she did this. and all went well for a little while. until one day, the pharmacy called my wife's mother, who she had been doing my wife the kindness of paying for her prescriptions. well, it turned out that doctor was supposed to cancel the Tramadol prescription but didn't. he said he would even when she called him and told him about the new medication. kind of a doctors responsibility any ways. but he didn't, witch caused my wife's mother to pick up a prescription that wasn't still prescribed to my wife. this immediately caused a panic, but got straightened out at the pharmacy's. the one pharmacy that my wife's mother uses even called the doctor. explaining this error. but the doctor wouldn't listen. he insisted that she was an opium addict, and dropped all her med's. didn't even ween her off at least, just dropped them. which is unhealthy enough. considering that naturally your body is going to get a dependency off of 4 1/4 years of being prescribed the medication. soon after this doctor did this, he also dropped her to a new medical "professional". informing her of this "opium addiction". so my wife has been dealing with the pain for over a year now. and all this new "doctor" has done is recommend physical therapy, heat and Tylenol and Advil. with the constant declining of any pain management. Any time my wife offers to do a program with this doctor, like once a day drug testing to receive her pain management again. i mean this doctor hasn't ever even brought up rehab. All she keeps going back to her only statement, "i feel narcotics are not the best option for you" . its even gotten so bad that we would take her to the e.r. constantly for pain. they keep recommending pain management. and this doctor still wont even move. still just pre-implanted to think that my wife is a narcotic abuser. and whats worse is she has a clean record. no drug issues in the past, no any kind of legal markings whats so ever. and we've seen known drug users come in and out of the clinic happy with a prescription in one hand and a smile on there face. I'm tired of watching drug users get away with this act that my wife clearly isn't faking and has medical documentation of several health problems that are destroying her. we thought we could just fight through this, at least we were some what able to, due to the local e.r. But even that's over now. her doctor called and told them not to treat her. they fought like hell and treated her this time. but told us we could no longer come back for any other pain attacks. so they declined us treatment. is that even legal? and on top of that this doctor wont approve of a surgery that could lessen the pain ten folds, due to the fact that she would require narcotics after the surgery. so declining treatment again, because she "feels that its not the best option for her" please tell me what can be done. we are seeking a legal way away from this doctor with out her claiming doctor shopping. because we know she all ready lies about what my wife says about her treatment. like the other day she tried to put my wife on a anti-convalescent medication. even though she has had a grand maul seizure and there's a possibility of another with the usage of this medication. i'm just tired of this doctor not doing anything but adding pain. my wife has to take toxic levels of Tylenol and Advil for it constantly. which isn't good on the liver. this doctor is literally killing my wife slowly and painfully and i'm tired of it. it needs to stop. any one know how i might end this night mare please... respond.
