My live-in girlfriend of 12 years July 2014 had major


Q: My live-in girlfriend of 12 years July 2014 had major Surjury. Posterity she was diagnosed a diabetic type 1, given insulin to tAke home. She informed the DOCTOR she was between addresses.. the DOCTOR then stoped giving her the insulin (not because of a medical reason, but because of a homeless one). She aS given metformin. She since developed, peripheral neuropathy, r.a., myalgia. Has constant severe pain. She crys cause of the severe pain every night, every . Day, all night, all day..shooting traveling.shocking, burning, surprising, fearful, stinging, debilitating, life altering severe pain. Unbearable PAIN. Her PcP hasn't done one single thing for her. Hasn't tested her for anything. Hasn't referred her to anyone. Hasn't even referred her o pain management.. 9 months, still in square one. I belief the medical attention my girlfriend is receiving from her is harming her.. medically. Her health is worsening. Her state of mind is worsening. But no one knows what she is going through.. but me. Have any advice for me and my girlfriend????
