What is the secret to getting your pain specialist to give you the damn medication you need? I think my constant worrying that he is going to "cut me off" suddenly just makes my anxiety, and therefore, my pain even worse. I don't want to jump around from doctor to doctor, and I absolutely HATE calling his office and talking to his bitchy nurse who says she will have him callme (and never does). I am at the end of my rope. Five years into my chronic pain problems, My 17 year old son was killed in a house fire while spending the night at a friend's house. Then my GP doctor dumped me without explanation, and my pain doc cut me off my meds. My shrink put me on Cymbalta, and miraculously I had no pain for about a year....but now it's back, 10 times worse that before. I have 3 ruptured lumbar discs, spinal stenosis, fibromyalgia, sever IBS, erosions in my esophagus, and chronic abdominal pain. All the sudden, I am a "psych case"...the grieving Mom....so what was my excuse for my pain all those years before my grief? I could use some advice on how to convince or find s doctor that will medicate me properly. Thanks!

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
