I'm not showing any other question than this one. We also don't have an NP named Pearl. So far as I know, I'm the only NP at Just Answer, and my name is Schuyler.
Can you retype your question, please?
Yes, I'm here. There is no way to tell who is going to write a prescription for any particular drug. You can call your insurer, and request an appointment with pain management. They are the ones most likely to prescribe opioids such as methadone long term.
Also have you seen a neurologist? If a vertebra is fractured, surgery to repair it might be a possibility, but you would need to be seen and have MRI to tell.
Please let me know what other questions you have about this.
I'm so sorry your family can't arrange some time to help you. Your insurance may have help for your recovery and even for some home care. They are the only ones who know what the limits of the policy are.
The only way to get an appointment is to call your insurance company and see who is available in pain management. Every insurance company is different and they all have different networks. You need to call the phone number on your United card, since the card for the person next door may reference an entirely different set of what is covered and what doctors are in their network.
The number you need to call is on your own insurance card. They are the ones who can help you.
Just Answer does not prescribe anything, not even an aspirin, and physicians do not advertise that they prescribe opioids. The vast majority do not. They send the patient to pain management, which is where you need to be seen until you can arrange to have surgery.
If you mean you aren't satisfied with the correct answers I've provided, you can call Just Answer customer service and request a refund. It's the number in the Terms of Service you read before asking your question. You will find it here: http://ww2.justanswer.com/terms-service
Those of us who spend out time answering customer questions have nothing to do with the financial arrangements a customer makes with Just Answer. All we know is we are not paid for our time unless the customer accepts the answer with a positive rating.
By the way, here is a list of physicians authorized to prescribe methadone in New Jersey. Just type the town nearest you.
