I struggle with severe chronic pain and medical diagnosis and an addiction to prescription pain medicine. No doctor in my city will give me pain meds to take home. However, I am in severe pain. My liver is going bad because I am forced to use NSAID products. I am in an intensive outpatient program for my addiction, but no one really wants to address this pain. I really am scared I'm going to relapse because I am in so much pain and no one is willing to figure me out. I have a lot of medical problems, but even my doctor is being difficult when it comes to dealing with me. She takes my heart and blood pressure then she's done with me and has done nothing to address the problem. Does anyone else experience this?
