Hi, are any of you having trouble getting treatment for your chronic pain? I've had RSD for 27 years and the past few my doctors took me off all of my pain meds. So I'm left in pain and they don't seem to care.

      I know how you feel….. the docs are literally scared to write Rxs to those of us who require serious pain mgmt. I was prescribed fentanyl for nearly 18 years and now I am off of it and I supplement the Percocet w/ medical-grade cannabis (i take cannabis in about 5 different forms). I am praying to be approved for IV Ketamine, bc truthfully the pain has gotten worse

      I understand the need for pain meds but because of the opioid crisis doctors don't seem to agree with me. Thank you for replying. I hope to find a doctor who will listen and care again. At this point in my life I have given up on ever feeling better and in less pain. I hope that I will get my hope and determination back. 🤦🤷

      Absolutely! I finally found a highly recommended doc who was willing to take me on (and my bevy of meds), he is a palliative care doc. I still struggle to manage my pain, bc of the # of pain meds I have been reduced to. I supplement with medical-grade cannabis
