It wasn't until I started seeing a new pain management physician, that I learned I have other options for my pain management. Such as nerve blocks and pulsed radiofrequency ablation. I recently requested my "file" from Dr. Reynold's office to share with my new physician. The letters he sent to my internist were appalling. He could tell I was a smoker ("She reeked of cigarette smoke"), but NEVER told me that quitting would reduce the inflammation in my head and body. He never even mentioned to me that he knew i was a smoker. He thought I was scamming him for narcotics and secretly had a CURE report run to see if I was obtaining opiates from any other physicians! He did not accurately reflect the meds he prescribed for me at each visit in his letters to my doctor. He always prescribed a number of drugs with 5 refills for each. Not one letter appropriately reflected this. He complained about my headache specialist wanting me to try a new drug for Fibromyalgia (because I was having nasty side effects from Lyrica) but he knew very little about the drug Savella. He did not believe that I exercised when I was able to and that I still suffered pain while I was doing so. He didn't believe that I had trouble sleeping and staying asleep and did not understand that getting less than 8 hours of sleep triggered migraines. Anyone who has ever read ANY text on the subject, no matter how basic, would know this to be true. He kept stating that my gate was fine, but did not mention the time I fell flat on my face outside of his office. He put in his letters that he referred me to a PT and a psychologist, but never did he mention them to me. He claimed that he showed me things on his website, that I was never shown. He suggested that I read a book, which I expressly went to Barnes and Noble to find, but they told me it did not exist after checking their system. He eventually claimed that he could no longer treat me because I needed help that he could not provide. When I called his office to find out why I was told that I was refilling my meds too frequently. I was simply following the instructions on the label (which I have kept) and it was automatically refilled at the pharmacy when my insurance company would allow for it. When I requested to speak with him personally to discuss this issue I was told by his wife that he refused to speak with me.
It took me 8 months before I found a new PM physician (so obviously I do not have a dependency on drugs, because I went without them for several months). My new doctor does not just dole out medication. He has provided me with two new options to eliminate the pain -- occipital nerve blocks (which have already helped greatly) and pulsed radiofrequency ablation. Something no one has ever presented to me before.
I foolishly followed Dr. Reynolds from the Bay Area Pain and Wellness Center, when he struck out on his own. What a mistake that was. But I can honestly say that I am happy to have found a physician who is honest with me, communicates freely and has other solutions to my health issues other than giving me drugs.
