I fell down my front stairs on Friday all along the way my back was basically bouncing off of the steps and i have bruising on my back, elbow and foot. I am in alot of pain and i went to er on Sat and of course before he even took x-rays he let me know due to my history he will not be prescribing any pain meds. I feel like i was in a car accident. My back by my shoulder blades hurt so bad it was difficult to even shower. So today i called my family physician and his nurse said i had to speak with the doc that gives me my suboxone! Why couldnt he see me and he call and they could work together and figure something out? I feel helpless and i know in a way i did this to myself, but i feel that they have evidence that i am in pain and not faking to seek out meds, so why wont they help me? Has anyone had this happen to them?

I understand your frustration. What was it that you were wanting the ER and/or your doctor to do for you? Honestly, I really don't blame your family doctor for referring you back to your suboxone doctor. Ideally, yes, the two would work together, in a perfect world, but we all know the world is far from perfect.

Did the ER tell you to use Ibuprofen and alternating ice and heat applications? If your pain is still bad, then call your sub doctor and discuss it with her/him. If your injuries are such that you need more pain med that suboxone provides, you'd have to go off sub and back on a full opiate agonist. And to be quite frank, with sub on board, any pain med they would give you probably wouldn't do anything. We have higher tolerances because of the sub and add to that it's blocking effect and most pain meds just won't get through. They'd have to give us above and beyond normal doses. Which is fine if we were to have a car crash or major surgery, but I have my doubts if they'd give you enough to get past your sub for injuries such that you describe.

I know this is probably not what you wanted to hear, and I'm sorry. This is just my opinion. I'm sorry you're in pain. It's one of the crappy parts of pain pill addiction. We usually end up suffering more in our lives because of it. I hope you heal quickly.
