No pain meds for 48 hours

I received my written instruction letter a few minutes ago for Tuesday morning's VNG testing.

No pain meds Sunday and Monday. No meds (script or OTC) whatsoever except for heart/diabetes/seizures.

If I wasn't so pissed (something AHCCCS said in another piece of mail I got--they won't help with my week in the hospital last month because they refuse to count any of my thousands of dollars of medical bills we paid in April and May--that they only count medical bills I HAVE to pay; oh sorry didn't realize I didn't HAVE to pay the 20% I am responsible for as a Medicare patient--20% of every surgery, procedure, test, visit, hospitalization, etc) I would laugh. Instead I feel like I'm going to throw up.

48 hours without pain meds? I can't go 4.
