You can ask anything you'd like, doesn't mean they will do it. I was at a specialist i see every couple of years this past year. The list of medication I have been on and what I was on, was wrong. I stood there for 15 minutes going through the list with them to correct it. I look back on the electronic copy a few weeks later, it is still wrong. I normally wouldn't care but they have listed all sorts of painkillers, the addictive crap. I do have chronic pain but I have never been prescribed that crap. I want them off the list becouse part of the battle every time I see a doc is yes, I am in pain, no I do not want drugs. I want my shots, only last 6 months to a year but even that short relief is awesome. But getting past the I do not want pills point, is always a battle. As I said, I went this year, my doc has a new intern, he looked at the x rays and ignored the MRI's and the 15 year history, MRI's showing the changes every 3 years or so. His first response was take a couple of Tylenol and go home. I have nerve damage, the MRI's show it, look at the damn things and stop talking about the insignificant arthritis in the x rays.
