@ckeys I ran out of pain pills and the doctor had miscounted how many should be in scrip. She wanted me to break them in half and one half every 6 hours. She only gave me 30 pills. I have had it with asking for help. I am leaving the University doctors. I am not a pin cushion. I am sick and I need help. They have no idea what to do with me. Now I started the Kratom and have not needed a pain pill since. I mean it guys. It has not hurt me and won't. My son had brain surgery and uses it. I am so sick of telling doctors I hurt. tears in my eyes. And then told to break the pills in half. I refuse to get hooked on the doctors. As far as I am concerned, they are forgetting their oath. I have serious RA and endless pain in addition now they see Multiple Myloma coming on the scene. I need a REAL doctor, not a student. I think the doctors today need to read their oath again. Do you trust them? No really do you?

@oregongirl That would be 15 days of pills, at one half every 6 hrs. Was that what she was writing it for? If not, she should be able to call in for more at the end of that period. I learned long ago to be a squeaky wheel, and advocate hard for myself without making enemies along the way.

@oregongirl have you gone to Mayo? You sound like you should The Drs there are really good and should be able to help you . If I had what you do I would go to a bigger hospital out here it is UCLA but is Az to far for you to go to Mayo there? I do agree these days the new Drs have a lot to be desired for one thing they aren't schooled in nutrition

@oregongirl I would fire any doctor that I didn't trust and I have done that. I have also sat down and said I am not getting what I need from them and had improved results. Multiple myeloma can be painful as well as life threatening and that on top of RA makes you a complicated case. I agree about University doctors, but they often have some of the leading treatment options and you can also ask not to be treated by residents. It sounds like you need a good Rheumatologist and a pain management doctor and possibly a hematologist/oncologist. If it were me, I would be seeking out a reputable healthcare organization than can provide all three. Any doctor who can't write a correct script is problematic. And one who is not meeting your needs even worse. I know that with opiates you can't call in a refill, it has to be written so that's truly a hassle. I am not sure what part of Oregon you live in, but I hear OHSU is very good. My aunt lives in Bend and has RA and loves her rheumatologist ~ she is also taking Humira which has helped with her flares. I am in Seattle area and here I love Swedish Hospital. Have your tried medical canibis or CBD Oil without THC? Some people have good luck with pain relief, especially night time with this. Best of luck to you. Keep demanding the care you need or find an advocate who can help you…this can be better and it's your life.

Dear keys, What good advise you had. I will adhere to some of it, since I am still believing in doctors giving me the right advise. Though I am finding out, sometimes there are other things envolved. So I am looking for some new advise and you know what, it might be what I need. So thank you again.
