I go to a pain management doctor. The last visit I had, I had to give a urine sample. I put in a request for a refill on my meds. I got an email yesterday saying "due to clinical findings, you will have to make a follow up visit to obtain your meds."

I just need to know what clinical finding means. I'm confused. Does that mean I failed my drug test?

Doctor: Dr. Gehring, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Ok. They include the finding in your urine into the "clinical findings". This means that your urine doesn't seem to be OK and you should see your doctor.

It depends on the reason for the urinary sample and on the drugs you take.

I'm on percocet. I went a few days without it. When they took the urine sample, I didn't have any in my system. Could that be what "clinical finding" means?

I know they randomly drug screen. It's a pain management program.

Doctor: Dr. Gehring, Doctor replied 7 months ago

In a pain management program, you want to know if the dosage is right. Maybe they found that you don’t have enough and want to talk to you about increasing it. But it is a "maybe".

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
