I have been on the same pain medications for over 16 years with the same doctor - his father delivered me and I am 54 years old. I failed my drug test for none other than methamphetamine. I have never done that drug in my life. I was devastated, but it didn’t matter. My doctor cut me off all my pain meds. I have done much research about false positive drug screens. It seems as though there could be many reasons for a false positive.
I am scared to death...I have RSD, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, degenerative disk disease, spinal stenosis, rheumatoid arthritis and the list goes on and on. My medications have allowed me to still be able to work and I’m very high functioning. I have a high threshold to severe pain, and I take very few meds, but I really need the Meds that I do take. Can I seek another pain management doctor or am I blackballed for life?
