Lakeland Regional Medical Center I was treated as a drug addict and was given Tylenol for on a level 9 pain. Dr was rude and did not listen to what I had to say Lakeland Florida
I have had tarsal tunnel and plantar fascia in 2011 and 2012 in NJ. I have since moved to Florida thinking everything would be okay. This is not the case. I have been to Doctor's, specialist, Hospital ER, and pain management. I have found no release and no care from either of the above. Last night I started to have pain that got worse over night pain in foot going up leg into abdominail area. I have some clue of what is going on as I have a MRI and a EMG. They, meaning my foot Dr stated scar tissue wrapped around my nerve and needs to have surgery. I have been to many Dr's who just keep referring me to other Dr's who basically state they will not touch me and will not give me anything for pain including anti inflammitories. Today I went to Lakeland Regional Medical Center due to the pain being so bad (9-10). When the Dr walked in he asked what the problem was and I stated my case and what I think was going on. I also stated that in the last few months it has gotten worse with pain traveling up my leg and into my hip and abdomial area. He asked if I was taking pain meds on a regular bases and my answer was no. He told me I was a drug addict and will not give me any pain medicine at the Hospital or go home with any. I had X-Rays and a ultra sound done for a blood clot, which I know do not show nerve damage. I knew I didn't have a blood clot and X-rays do not show scar tissue wrapped around my nerve. This Dr was rude, ignorant and very unprofessional. His attuidute was I was there only for the drugs I was given 2 tylenol and a anti inflamitory which did nothing for my pain. This was this morning and I am in still allot of pain! I was treated like a drug addict and not a patient that has a serious problem with pain and not sure what the problem acutally is. I went for help and got treated very badly by this Dr. I don't know where to go or how to get treatment right now. I feel I was treat unfairly and not treated like a human being.
