The Dental Appointment

The appointment itself went well but I asked that we do more than the scant few amount so as not to stretch out these procedures. I do not need to go through this again and again. They agreed.

After the appointment I requested 5, count them, 5 pain pills to assist with extreme discomfort. I asked that those 5, low dose, pain pills be all I'm given to and would last for the this appointment and the final two. The dentist said she would ask my medical doctor if such a script was okay to give!!! Keep in mind, I'm doped from the gas so I'm not thinking clearly BUT I do know I didn't sign a release of information for her to make contact and ask him jack crap!!! So why was she able to call and talk to that office and why on earth did my doctor say NO!!!!!!!! I don't think I could add enough exclamation marks to that. My medical doctor also decided not to refill my Gabapentin script....For the second time that script has been denied. I've had to call and straighten out with the nurse that the script has been given me for a very, very long time and that I should continue to get this script!!!!!!! The first time this happened she gave me this long comment about how it was a mistake. She then provided the script. This is the second time the script has been denied. What's the mistake this time?

I'm not happy at all. I've been denied 5, count 'em 5 pain pills that were to stretch for 3 dental appointments. This is crap!!!! This is complete crap. The last pain med script I had from my GP was January 30th for 30 Vicodin 5-325's. That's what he gave me to last for three months. That's nearly 4.5 months on 30 5/325's. Man, stop playing with me. You know I can't stand you anyway!!!!!!!

I didn't get a lick of sleep last night, not a wink.

I am mad at the world right now and hungry as all get out.

What I don't like about this situation is that my dentist is part of the hospital system I go. Instead of just dealing with my dental care she is able to look into my hospital records. I don't appreciate that. This is also why I don't want a psychiatrist who is affiliated with the hospital. It gives my medical doctor access to my psychiatrist's notes.

OMG I am so mad right now I can't even see straight!!! I woke up too late to do anything about this and for some reason, the dental office is closed every Wednesday. I am so mad I can't see straight!!!!

    I'm having issues that are similar. Pain isn't something that is easy for them to comprehend. Makes me so mad, I could spit nails. Love to you ❤️❤️❤️

    I have a question. Does your pain make you angry? With pain and stupidity, my anger level goes from zero to 60 in no time flat. I was ready to spit fire today.
    It makes me wonder if I have some kind of flag on my chart that says, don't give this girl a single solitary pain med.
    I have to let this go for tonight cause I'm just gonna be angry again. It's unjust. It's totally and completely wrong.
