I have been seeing a pain management dr in the last several years. Recently, they decided they were going to screw around with extended release meds.
My insurance doesn’t approve extended release in the med they are trying.

This requires a ton of paperwork, appeals, the whole nine yards.

When they decided hey we are going to bump it up three weeks ago…that process started over.

I was told to take the increased dose and the authorization will be taken care of before I ran out.

I’ve been out of my med just over a week. When I called for the second time, “It’s not going to do any good to call us, we will call you.”

The increased dose still wasn’t helping with my pain. So guess what that means? When they see me again…the same process will happen.

I’ve been failed and it’s not fair. I can’t sleep, I can’t focus…it takes all my energy to do day.to day and I still don’t have enough.

I said I would never wish this pain on anyone…my thoughts are starting to change.

  1. As someone who is still trying to cope with chronic pain after more than a year, I can truly say I feel your pain. If what you were taking was working, why did they decide to change it, especially since your insurance won’t cover it. This is one area where I am glad I done have insurance because there is no one involved in my medications except me and my doctor.

  2. I am so sorry Jenna. I know all too well how it feels to live with uncontrolled pain. I wish there was something I could do for you. What they are doing is just so unfair.
