Need new LEGIT Dr for pain meds ASAP!

Can someone please help?????? I am in central NJ in the NJ shore area and I have severe rheumatoid arthritis affecting most of my joints from the neck down causinf severe chronic pain and am on disability. I was seeing a rheumatologist for the past for years since diagnosis who was prescribing me methadone and roxicodone after trying many other pain medications that did not work. I am now at a new rheumatologist who does not prescribe pain meds at all. He told me to call pain management and I have called endless places only to be told that they only give epidural injections which will not work for my situation. I have also called endless rheumatologists other rheumatologists and they do not prescribe pain meds either and I could only find one pain clinic at RWJ and they only take referrals from oncologists, neurologists and for some reason gynocologists. I had no idea this would be such a problem to get my mediciation, as I have only been with one rheumatologist since the beginning of my disease. I have medical records with all my information that he will forward a caring doctor who can help me. PLEASE!!!! I am about to run out of my meds and I don't know what to do! PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!! I rarely drive, but I have someone who will drive me to a doctor if he is not in my area.  (Jun 21, 2012 | post #1)
