I am just wondering if anyone else has had trouble getting thier doctor to treat the pain associated with fibro and cfids? I worked for my doctor for several years, knowing me that well I would assume that he would trust that the pain that I describe to him is real, but it has taken me six months to get him to prescribe Lortab 5 once a day. I live in a region where drug abuse is abundant however I have never used an ilicet drug. I am at the max on Neurontin, Cymbalta, ibuprofen and taking amytriptiline, I just think that if my pain were controlled that I could deal better with this whole thing. Coming from the background as a hospice nurse I believe that the patient has the right to be comfortable, I know it's not allways possible to be completely pain free. At my appt. Mon. he reassured me I wasn't dying, nice of him to remind me that I am going to live, especially when I hadn't slept in 2 days and was crying in pain! lol Any suggestions on pain control?
