Hi everyone. This is my first post but I do frequently read up on what's happening in this discussion. I have been on worker's compensation since I herniated a disc on 7/8/14. I have had PT, two sets if ESIs, and am waiting in approval for a SCS. (I have been waiting since the judge ordered it in October 2015) Anyway, I was prescribed 50 mg tramadol in August (40 pills) and refilled in January 2016. I currently have 32 left as I only take them when I can't take the edge off. After having a horrible pain filled weekend I called today to refill as I am leaving for vacation next week. The doctor said he won't fill and I need to take something over the counter and see if my primary will prescribe it. Unfortunately my primary won't take worker's comp. Anyone know why this wasn't refilled? I'm really confused as I'm waiting on SCS for pain and it's the fault of insurance not me.
