Now I am going to have to have both of my hips replaced, but the first surgery isn't until January. In diagnosing the condition I have been to four doctors. My primary, who referred me to a rheumatologist who referred me to an orthopedic surgeon in the same office who referred me to yet another orthopedic surgeon in the same office the first one said he is a "shoulder guy". My big concern is that to my pharmacy it looks like I am getting prescriptions from all over the place. Not all are pain though.
The first orthopedic surgeon prescribed Tramedol which is a very minor pain killer. It helped some but not very much. But it was only 30 and I went through those in about two weeks. So I am at the point where I am thinking about trying to find a "primary" who will prescribe me the drugs that I need for pain and for my panic attacks.
But I am worried after reading all of this that I might be in trouble already just for seeing so many doctors. I don't consider myself "doctor shopping" in that I am not seeking the same drug or even type of drug from more than one doctor and the only reason I am seeing so many doctors is that most are specialists and that my first primary doctor wasn't very good and I don't think very highly of my current one either both working in clinic situations and probably overworked and underpaid.
I spoke with the nurses of my rheumatologist and my orthopedic surgeon this morning about the situation. Both were wishy washy and ended up telling me to call my "primary".

Opiates do decrease blood pressure, but only until you build up tolerance, then they don't anymore. Medications and supplements that decrease blood pressure don't stop working after a while due to tolerance there are always those exceptions of course when certain indivduals seem to have tolerances to certain drugs like antidepressants and blood pressure medications, but this is not typical for everyone that takes them, like it is for opiates.
I suffered a shattered spine at L-1 and L Permanent nerve damage and additional surgery is needed. I see ONLY my surgeon. He prescribes a sustained release med, and a breakthrough med. I am cutting back already on the BT meds because he put me on a decent sustained release med.
You need better pain control for an obviously chronic painful condition. Good luck on finding a good PM doctor. No one should have to live with chronic pain. I'm shocked to be taken off because of being two days early. CVS held my prescription for those two days and called me when it went through.
His nurse is the one who told the Dr. She won't let me talk with the doctor about this, I wrote him a letter and she said 'he's sticking to his decision'.

This is all further compounded by the fact that I have been taking Ambien every night since I quit drinking I have tried to go without and I simply don't sleep and it is about to run out and I am afraid my primary won't fill that either. They are willing to give me the Ultram which is addictive, just not a narcotic. That is why they don't work good for long term pain. I could up the dose of Ibuprofen I take. I oxycodone you well and good luck! No one should have to live with chronic pain.

No one prescribed to advise me as I began taking the powerful oxycodone I would need to get through the next few days. I have never been in trouble with the law and the fear of prison is horrible. Despite this, no one had talked to me about the risks of relapse or how best to manage and track my prescriptions.
