Yes my pain is so intense. It’s ruining my social life relationships my daily activities. Was abruptly cut off my lortab April 2018. 9 months now of complete excruciating pain. With no hope of recovering. My medication Wrkd I didn’t abuse it. Dr loses her license I’m paying the price. Not right had have at least 16 cortisone shots!!! Made it even worse!!! Dr kept saying don’t lose hope my paper work is almost done. Basically lied I gave up and give up. New Drs 2 wks I don’t even care I’m sure I’ll be questioned humiliated because of the so called opioids crisis. I’m sick of it. I’m suffering because of someone else’s bad choices. Not right not one bit. I can’t bike walk forget long drives!!! Damage on my coccyx from a bad fall 4 yrs ago worsened over time. Top it off ulcerous colitis because of the daily stress and struggles I deal with day in day out. Scoliosis as well. Exray mri. You name it do they care nope. But hand out suboxon like candy. Smh
