Had my appointment today. The doctor although he seems compassionate he doesn't seem to remember what was said from one visit to the next. He also threats you like a criminal.
I asked for a skin biopsy and his response was I don't even know where to send you for that!
He keeps on saying opioids are not a preferred treatment for neuropathy and when I bring up every article I read list them as a treatment he tell me not in the medical books he has. Said I don't know what your reading. I asked then why has it made my life tolerable for the last 12 years he had no response. I said why have I bin given it for 12 years again no answer. Keeps on saying gabapentin I'm on the maximum dose already and it doesn't seem to help much not even close to the opioids. Frankly I feel little to no difference on or off them. I have heat disease, lung disease, liver disease, skin disease now he wants to ruin my kidneys with gabapentin. The other side effects with gabapentin are not pleasant either. My memory is already shakey how long before its ruined with that drug.
All these doctors are making me sicker. The hydroxyurea I was on that gave me the pain was misdiagnosed in the first place. This is crazy .
Thanks again for all the info and support I bin given!
