Customer Question

In Friday I went in to see my primary physician. I needed some refills and I had other medical concerns. One of my refills I needed was my tramadol. I have been taking tramadol for 3-4 years. This doctor put me on it himself. He told me that he would absolutely no longer fill my tramadol or anyone's pain medications anymore. He said the DEA was on its way there as we speak. Then I asked him about withdrawal. "You're on your own with that. I'm absolutely not going to fill your tramadol again. I don't care! You need to see a pain clinic from now on." He didn't offer me any helpful suggestions on how to deal with withdrawal, he didn't get me a bed in a detox center, he refused to safely taper me off of my tramadol. Sunday I went into the ER because I felt like I was being crushed, I was having a hard time breathing, I couldn't control my anxiety, I was having troubles walking because I was so weak and dizzy. I was nauseated. All because my personal doctor flipped out, over reacted because the DEA was on their way to the office. He couldn't get me out fast enough. I have a 20 month old daughter that I'm the primary caregiver for. The last two days I've been such a mess I haven't been able to take care of her.
