I’m in a fix - methadone withdrawal

Hello all - would appreciate any words of advice/encouragement. Given the attitudes today towards treating chronic pain, I don’t know what I’m to do. I have been In bimonthly management for 10 years. I have had a good PM physician, the same but she absolutely refuses ANY early RF. I was changed from morphine PO, 200 mg daily 2 years ago to methadone 30 mg PO d. I keeps my meds secure. I will separate a months worth in 4 packages. Somehow, the 4th package is gone. I face the last week before my refill date - will be without the methadone. It’s pretty frightening as the WD from methadone is pretty awful. Can anybody comment-  I mean many nights without ANY sleep. Pain intensity just goes up and up. I’m afraid. My BP spikes quite high and quickly. I’ll continue tearing things apart to find them but it is pretty bleak. Thanking all in advance!
