I have been in chronic pain for 15 yrs due to a hysterectomy with severe complications. I have IC,FMS,Migraines,Spinal Arthritis, etc... My dr of 6 yrs dumped me because he no longer accepts medicaid. I got no referral was on my own. I been on methadone for many years as that helps my pain so much. I tried to buy private insurance but it does not cover anything due to pre-exisiting conditons. I have been looking for 9 months, I saw a dr for 3 months who mostly wants to do procedures. I had a lumbar block and that didnt work as I was having severe burning pain in my hips that radiates to my legs so he wanted to do a epidural that I have had in the past. I just got a letter from my insurance Co . and they dont cover the block so I now owe this dr $3000 I cant afford so I wont be able to go back unless I can pay that. I made the mistake of consulted a pain dr that cost $400 then he charges $300 per month for follow up visits. I am on SSI and have a very low income. Plus he does not know about methadone. now my pain level is back to unmanageable and I will have to quit my job if I dont get pain relief. I dont know where to turn,. I have called mediciad and the list they gave me I called them all and they also no longer accept mediciad. Im up against the wall here. I just want my life back.Its ashame that the resourses are out there but I cant get the help. Thank you for any advise.
