I am 30 years old and have been dealing with migraines since I was 15. For the last couple of years I have been seeing a pain management Dr and having blocks and rfa procedures done on my neck. I’m currently in the middle of needing to have one and weeks away from my appointment. I have been missing work and have had to make several trips up to our local Clinic where they have been giving me Demerol, fluids and zofran. I basically go home and try to sleep it off.
Today I called the pain clinic to see if I could possibly get a short term script for Demerol tablets. Not only would it be cheaper but it would save me from having to bug family members to come pick me up at the Clinic. After talking to the nurse I thought she probably thinks I’m just a drug seeker. When truly I just want relief and to be able to function and go to work. I don’t know what to do, I constantly worry about what the doctors and nurses think of me and if they just think this pain is made up. I wish it was, I’m so tired of dealing with it. I’m 30 and feel like I’m 80.
