So I've long suffered from Chronic Pain. I have a whole bunch of different health issues. I am not sure which ones are causing all the problems though and for years, I am having problems getting adequate treatment. There are no Pain management doctors in the area that my insurance covers, and even when I ask my doctors to refer me they won't do it. The only thing that has worked for me is Narcotic pain medication and marijuana. The doctors around here make you fight to get a script for anything thats narcotic, they think everyone is an addict or will become an addict, but what else am I supposed to do? No one seems to listen when I tell them I am in awful pain everyday of my life. I have tried so many other kinds of non narcotic medications from OTC, Anti-inflammatories, things used to treat nerve pain. I even tried herbal stuff a couple times which is just worthless. I am too afraid to get stern with my doctors cause they intimidate me and I end up leaving crying and I don't want to be accused of being an addict. I also want more tests done because there has to be something more going on and I want to get good treatment. What is a person supposed to do? How can I get help with this? The pain is destroying my life and just making me more depressed.
